Barcelona thrash Huesca to go top of LaLiga table

Barcelona put up a show at the Nou Camp on Sunday night, crushing Huesca 8-2, to go top of LaLiga.

Top-flight debutants, Huesca took a shock early lead when Cucho Hernandez deflected the ball in from point-blank range, but Lionel Messi levelled in the 16th minute.

An own goal from Jorge Pulido gave Barca the lead and Luis Suarez scored for the first time in five games in all competitions to extend their advantage, although Huesca’s Alex Gallar pulled one back before halftime to make it 3-2.

Any hope of a revival from the visitors was soon killed off by three Barca goals in 11 minutes from Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic and Messi while Jordi Alba capped a brilliant performance to score and Suarez added goal number eight from the penalty spot in stoppage time.

Barca join Real Madrid as the only teams in the league to win their opening three games, but are ahead with a superior goal difference.
