Barcelona are three goals to the good at home to Sevilla at half-time and it's the devastating double act of Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi that have provided the goods.
The opener was a special one and came in the 25th minute, through Suarez.
Not just clever and cheeky on the pitch, Suarez is a bit of prankster off it and he and Neymar got Gerard Pique good in one instance that was captured on camera:

Anyway, back to the goal, Messi darted down the right flank and crossed for his teammate in the middle and when the Sevilla defender couldn't clear his lines, the ball fell kindly for Suarez, who instead of going for a simple finish, opted for an acrobatic overhead kick that flew into the top corner.

Granted, we've seen better overhead kicks in terms of quality and distance and Suarez has scored plenty of better goals (that's probably because of the sheer standard of the goals he scores) but it's still a marvellous finish from the Barcelona No.9.
And his goal brought him these two brilliant statistics:

Suarez is just different gravy, isn't he?
That Messi lad's pretty handy as well though and bagged himself a brace in quick succession to continue Barca's rampant first half display.
Check out the Argentine ace's double here, with his second goal particularly making for good viewing:

When Barca get going, they really are something else.
