With no beard and longer hair, it was a throwback look for Messi as he terrorised Mallorca's defense like it was 2015 all over again.

"We have had an effectiveness...but we were fine with the ball. We have had a break, but I am very satisfied.

"To be the first game without playing, we could be accused of a lack of rhythm, but I think it is a good start to face this sprint that we have 10 games left. I have good feelings in general."

Barcelona are now five points ahead of Real Madrid at the top of the table, who resume their campaign this evening against Eibar.
