The Barcelona champion demonstrates his offensive power and, a few days after a draw in El Clasico, defeated 4-1 Alavec in the 18th round of La Liga. Antoine Griezmann opened the scoring in the 14th minute, and at the end of the first half Arturo Vidal doubled the advance of the Blaugranas. In the 56th minute Pere Ponce returned the intrigue, but a nice hit by Lionel Messi calmed down the Camp Nou, and a point of contention put Luis Suarez out of the penalty spot. The Uruguayan also recorded assists for Griezmann and Vidal hits.
