Messi, Suarez Power Barcelona to 3-0 Victory Over Liverpool
Lionel Messi put Barcelona to within a touching distance of the Champions League final on Wednesday after firing a stunning brace to down Liverpool 3-0 at the Camp Nou.
Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez opened the scoring midway through the opening half of the semi-final first leg before Messi struck twice in seven second-half minutes to leave the Reds with a mountain to climb in the tie despite an impressive performance in Catalonia.
Messi’s second, an incredible long-range free-kick, was his 600th Barca goal in all competitions
The two sides meet again on Tuesday for the decisive second leg at Anfield.
