Barcelona recovered well from the embarrassing loss against Alavés a week ago by trouncing Leganés with a 5-1 win away from home to return to the winning ways in La Liga and stay close to the league leaders in the early days of the season.

It was a very good performance from a Blaugrana team that dealt well with the high pressure from the opposition and destroyed them on the counter. Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar Jr. all scored, and the 'MSN' stars reached a spectacular mark of 250 goals as a trio in just two years together, which is an astonishing achievement.

But it wasn't just the 'MSN' that played a big part on the victory, as the Barça defense and midfield survived the pressure from Leganés and gave the attacking superstars the opportunity to batter the opposition on counter-attacking chances. The whole team was up to the task on Saturday, and a lot of them took to social media to celebrate with their followers.


We start with Man of the Match Lionel Messi, who celebrated the win in typical Messi style: with his family.

Ya en casa con la familia y unos buenos mates !!!! Los amo
