That front three of Messi, Neymar and Suarez were up to their old tricks against Roma tonight as Barcelona went goal crazy against Roma.

While they found the net easy to find, there was also this outrageous touch by Neymar. Absolutely incredible.

Barcelona battered Roma 6-1 at the Nou Camp, with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez both claiming a brace.

Gerard Pique and Adriano also scored, with Neymar missing a penalty but impressing in link play.

Edin Dzeko missed a sitter of a first-half header for Roma, then a late penalty, only to nod home with the game's final act.

Barcelona's victory secures top spot in Group E, and will leave the rest of Europe on high alert to their chances of going the distance in the tournament.
