While the end product will get the plaudits, the credit should go to Luis Suarez and Sergio Busquets for their great passing and movement in the midfield to open up space and create the chance. It was typical Barca brilliance and it result in the typical finish. The ball in the net and Barcelona celebrating yet another fine goal.
