Philippe Coutinho delivers Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi promise

Mina in action against Getafe

Ninth-placed Girona have made waves in their debut LaLiga season and Pablo Machin's side drew first blood at Camp Nou through Portu, the forward adding to goals against Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Valencia this term. Just when you think you've seen everything from Messi, he surprises you, like his free kick, which looked easy but was very hard to execute.

Before scoring himself, Lionel Messi played a through ball to Luis Suarez to net an equaliser for Barcelona for what was the Argentine star's 148th career assist in La Liga.

He mesmerized by scoring a Ronaldinho-esque free kick that slid under the jumping Girona wall and past the right hand of the goalkeeper.

Barcelona had a slow start to the second half but got consistently better as Messi dispossessed Riera Pons before releasing a good effort, but this time Bounou managed to make the save and deny Messi his hat-trick.

Coutinho received the ball from Suarez on the edge of the area, took a Girona defender left and then right before bending a lovely shot into the far corner.

Girona got things started in the matchup by capitalizing off of a poor defensive play from the home team.

"Just when a player seems to have done everything, he goes and surprises you".

Dukurs, also a five-time world champion, finished fourth at the PyeongChang Olympics with a combined time of 3:22.31. Yun finished 16th in his Olympic debut at the 2014 Sochi Games, just two years after he took up the sport.

"We were waiting to see how the wall would cope with him and then he goes and puts it under it".

Coutinho, Messi and Suarez were all involved in Barcelona's fourth score in the 45th minute. You see it and you think it's easy.

"It's incredible how good he is".

In the second half, Coutinho netted a sensational fifth before Suarez completed the rout, tapping in from Ousmane Dembele's cross.

But it took him five games in one of the best sides in the world to bag in La Liga.

But, before the dust had settled on the shock opener to the game, Barcelona were soon level when Lionel Messi provided the ideal assist for Luis Suarez to score.
