La Liga: Lionel Messi & Trincao scores brilliant brace as FC Barcelona fire PSG Champions League warning


Lionel Messi turned in a vintage performance as the Barcelona talisman scored two fantastic goals during Saturday’s 5-1 rout of Alaves at Camp Nou.

Barca warmed up for their upcoming Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain in style as Messi starred in his record-equalling 505th LaLiga appearance.

Portuguese forward Francisco Trincao put Barca in front after a cut-back from 18-year-old debutant midfielder Ilaix Moriba, and Messi thought he had doubled the lead later on when knocking in on the rebound - but the goal was ruled out for a marginal offside against Antoine Griezmann.

Messi then took matters in to his own hands from outside the area and thumped the ball off the far post with such venom that it landed just inside the opposite post.

Alaves’s Luis Rioja pounced on a mistake by Ilaix to reduce the deficit in the second half but Barca came roaring back with a second strike from Trincao, another long range missile from Messi and then a fifth goal crafted by Messi and Griezmann and finished off by left back Junior Firpo.

The performance came at just the right time as Barca prepare to host French giants PSG - who will be missing the injured Neymar - on Tuesday night in their Champions League last-16 first leg.
