Barcelona v Villarreal video, highlights: Lionel Messi scores 50th, 51st goals of the season

LIONEL Messi scored his 50th and 51st goals in all competitions to help Barcelona keep the pressure on Real Madrid in the Spanish league’s tight title race.

Neymar and Luis Suarez also struck in a 4-1 victory over Villarreal that increased the combined goal tally of Barcelona’s trio of star strikers to 102 in the campaign.

Barcelona holds the tiebreaker over Madrid, but Madrid will still have three matches to play after this round to Barcelona’s two. That means Madrid controls its own fate as it tries to dethrone Barcelona and lift its first Liga title since 2012.

“Madrid is playing very well but you never know,” Barcelona defender Gerard Pique said. “We won. That’s what we had to do.”
