Barca romps with Messi magic show

Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Barcelona vs Celta: how and where to watch: times, TV, online

Barcelona put on a real show at Camp Nou on Thursday as they ran the riots against Celta Vigo last night.

Barca number 10, Lionel Messi was on fire for his club as he scored two goals for his club in the 13th and 15th minute of the match.

Sevilla also qualified for the quarter-finals with a 4-1 aggregate win after beating Cadiz 2-1 thanks to goals from Wissam Ben Yedder and Joaquin Correa. Barcelona's all-time scoring leader swept Alba's cross past Sergio Alvarez despite the goalkeeper getting a hand to the ball, and he followed up by firing home after another exchange of passes with Alba.

In team news, new Barca signing Philippe Coutinho won't be making his debut just yet due to an injury, but the star trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Andres Iniesta, who all missed the first leg, are included in the squad. Messi then turned provider, lobbing a flawless pass behind Celta's back line to meet the run by Alba, who chipped Alvarez to score.

National Weather Service warns of freezing rain, sleet, snow
Travel will undeniably be quite hard late Friday night into Saturday morning with icy, slick surfaces and then accumulating snow. Much of the salt on area roadways has likely been washed off given the amount of rain over the last 24 hours.

However, their gung-ho approach has left gaps in the back and 27 goals conceded has seen much of their good work in attack go to waste. Pione Sisto made a catastrophic one after half an hour, as his slack back pass was pounced upon by Suarez, who finished emphatically.

Barca did make it a five-star performance, though, as Rakitic took advantage of some woeful Celta defending to head home from a corner three minutes from time. Goals from Leo Baptistao and Gerard Moreno sent Espanyol through.

So far, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Valencia, Leganes and Deportivo Alaves have punched their quarterfinal tickets.

Given Celta have performed well against the better sides in La Liga this season, there was no sense that this tie was over after the first leg.
