Table topping Barcelona welcome Villarreal to Camp Nou on Saturday with a win imperative for Luis Enrique's men to keep their title hopes alive as Real Madrid travel to already relegated Granada the same night.

"Any football fan has to appreciate what Neymar does, which sometimes seems more like ballet than dribbling". Sergi Roberto played through Suarez who created space before blasting past Fernandez and putting the game out of reach.

James Rodriguez needed three minutes to spark the rout and another eight to double the lead.

The Blaugrana rode their luck a little in the first half but went in at the break 2-1 ahead after goals from Neymar and Lionel Messi, with Cedric Bakambu responding for the visitors.

"(Messi) is a specialist in knowing where to be to do damage", Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said.

Diario Sport previously reported that the offer to Messi will be until 2022 and that recent new deals for strike partners Luis Suarez and Neymar have laid the foundations for him to commit his future to the club.

"Real Madrid is on another level to us", Adams said.

Earlier, third-placed Atletico Madrid guaranteed their place in the top four with a 1-0 win over Eibar.

Barcelona had looked shaky at the back on a couple of occasions and they were eventually punished for their high line when Bakambu raced through on goal before keeping his composure to slot the ball past Marc-Andre ter Stegen at his near post. Now tied for points with leaders Barcelona, Madrid have a game in hand due to their late Champions League run. He did not feature in the first leg against Atletico Madrid and also did not have anything to do in the famous win over Bayern Munich over two legs.

Gerard Pique almost restored the hosts' lead soon afterwards as he headed wide Messi's cross, while Villarreal went close with a header from Soldado that also missed the target. The midfielder drilled in a low cross by Diego Godin that substitute Fernando Torres smartly decided not to touch when it crossed his path.
