WATCH: Leo Messi, Luis Suarez make goals look easy vs. Sporting Gijon

This one could get ugly...

Lionel Messi is known for scoring many goals in many different ways. Headers aren’t among those usually. He has scored them in the past, some in huge matches like a Champions League final even, but he doesn’t do it often. He opened the scoring against Sporting Gijon with one on Wednesday just eight minutes into the match:

Just a few minutes later, Luis Suarez found his way past the Gijon backline like they aren’t even there and extended the lead to 2-0.

Sitting 18th in the league and visiting the Camp Nou in a midweek league match, this has a lopsided defeat written all over it for Gijon. Don’t be surprised to see a round number on the scoreboard for Barcelona in this one.
