FC Barcelona won their sixth consecutive league match following their 3-0 victory over Eibar the Camp Nou. Luis Suárez scored twice and Lionel Messi scored the other in the victory that allowed the Blaugrana to remain five points ahead of their nearest rivals, Atletico Madrid in the league standings. What made this night magical was the fact that Messi scored his 400th league goal in his 435th league appearance, which no other player has managed to reach that milestone. Barça will now shift their attention to the Copa del Rey as they try to overcome a 2-1 first leg loss to Levante on Thursday at the Camp Nou before hosting Leganés on Sunday in league play.
