Barcelona hosted Getafe in La Liga on Saturday and sprung a surprise before kick-off with Luis Suarez on the substitutes' bench.

It didn't appear to make any difference, though, as Juan Rodriguez put one through his own net after eight minutes to give the hosts the lead.

It looked like Barca would double their advantage just moments later after they were awarded a penalty, but Lionel Messi missed to continue the club's poor record from 12 yards out. According to MisterChip, it meant they became the first Primera Division team to miss eight spot-kicks in one season.

Munir el Haddadi eventually doubled the advantage, putting Barca firmly in the lead with less than 30 minutes on the clock.

That was followed by a goal from Neymar, as Barcelona threatened to run riot at the Camp Nou.

Messi made up for his penalty miss with a lovely strike to put Barca in cruise control, and they led 4-0 at half-time.

The Argentinian made it a hat-trick of assists on the day, picking out Neymar in front of goal. The Brazilian made no mistake to notch his second and Barcelona's fifth.

Arda Turan made the score even more lopsided in the 57th minute, scoring a neat overhead kick for Barcelona's sixth goal.
