Barcelona have kept their title hopes alive following a 3-0 win over Sevilla at Camp Nou.

25 minutes into the Wednesday encounter, the Catalans took the lead through Luis Suarez who unleashed a brilliant overhead kick from close range to make it 1-0.

Three minutes later, Argentinean ace Lionel Messi, who returned from suspension, made it 2-0 for Barca by calmly tapping a low shot through the legs of the keeper and into the back of the net.

And, Messi completed the crucial victory for the hosts in the 33rd minute as he fired an unstoppable shot past the helpless keeper to make it 3-0 and hand his side the vital three points.
