Olateru Olu: I don't have words to qualify Messi Neymar Suarez , they are too good to be in a team together.

Jamie Bell: Impossibly, Barcelona are now even better than they were under Guardiola.

Joe young: As a Liverpool fan, watching Suarez here is heartbreaking.

adam wallace: Some people give flowers for valentines Messi gives assists.

Barcelona 6-1 Celta Vigo

Of course, you're all talking about Barcelona tonight. And who can blame you?

FULL-TIME

Fiorentina 2-1 Inter Milan

It will be fascinating to know what Inter manager Roberto Mancini made of the decision to send off full-back Alex Telles with eight minutes left. Telles looked a little unlucky to pick up a second yellow card after he was judged to have brought down Federico Bernardeschi. 

Fiorentina boss Paulo Sousa, though, deserves great credit for substitutions that changed the game. Cristian Tello just wasn't producing on the wing: Mauro Zarate's introduction was the catalyst for the comeback. What a pity that Zarate's indiscipline meant he failed to see out the game.

FULL-TIME

Fiorentina 2-1 Inter Milan

Fiorentina hang on through more than five minutes of stoppage time, and their reward is to climb up to third - which, in Serie A, is the final Champions League qualification spot.

RED CARD - Mauro Zarate

Fiorentina 2-1 Inter Milan

Seriously, this is a bonkers finish. Mauro Zarate, having just played a part in the winner, grabs Jeison Murillo by the neck in an off-the-ball incident, spotted by one of the assistants, and is dismissed. We finish with 10-a-side.

GOAL - Fiorentina 2-1 Inter Milan

Khouma Babacar (90+1 mins)

Ah, you can keep your Barcelona dream football. This is where the drama is. Khomua Babacar, on the pitch for three minutes, has surely won the match.

It's another substitute, Mauro Zarate, who claims an assist, with a shot that Samir Handanovic should hold but doesn't, and Babacar bundles in the loose ball from about three feet. Paulo Sousa raises his arms aloft.

DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION

Fiorentina 1-1 Inter Milan

Fiorentina boss Paulo Sousa responds with a double change of his own in a bid to force a late win. Tino Costa is on for Matias Vecino, and Khouma Babacar replaces Josip Ilicic.

SUBSTITUTION

Fiorentina 1-1 Inter Milan

Inter boss Roberto Mancini, in order to shore things up following that red card, has brought off forward Rodrigo Palacio and sent on defender Danilo D'Ambrosio.

RED CARD - Alex Telles

Fiorentina 1-1 Inter Milan

Inter are down to 10 men for the final eight minutes. Full-back Alex Telles, booked early on, is shown a second yellow after he is judged to have brought down Federico Bernardeschi. It looks a soft decision. Danny Simpson probably knows how Telles feels.

Apparently that would have been Lionel Messi's 300th La Liga goal if he had buried THAT penalty. But instead showed his selflessness by teeing up Luis Suarez for the hat-trick. What a man.

Fiorentina 1-1 Inter Milan

A very different type of game in Serie A, meanwhile. Inter defender Jeison Murillo needs cotton wool stuffing up his nose to stem the blood after being clattered accidentally by Nikola Kalinic's elbow. Then La Viola striker Kalinic is booked for lifting his boot into keeper Samir Handanovic while chasing a through ball. From the sublime...

Ayo Obit: This Barcelona team are on a different level to anything else at the moment!

alan windworth: This is the greatest Football team I have ever seen.

Thomas Broadley: There are no words to describe what just happened in that second half from Barca.

Barcelona 6-1 Celta Vigo

Nice question from former ref @itu_edu: statistically speaking, does that count as a missed penalty from Messi? ;-)

FULL-TIME

Barcelona 6-1 Celta Vigo

All over! Barcelona restore their three-point lead at the top of La Liga with a performance more stylish than London Fashion Week.

No wonder their players are grinning like Cheshire Cats at the final whistle. 

GOAL - Barcelona 6-1 Celta Vigo

Neymar (90+1 mins)

No Neymar, no party. The Brazil star finally joins his mates Messi and Suarez on the scoresheet, clipping into the net from the left side of the box after his run was picked out by Suarez.

Barcelona 5-1 Celta Vigo

We're seeing more tricks at the Nou Camp then you'd see at the circus which has just pitched up in town. Celta would rather be inside a lion's cage. They're getting mauled and just want to go home. 

Fiorentina 1-1 Inter Milan

It's a very decent game at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, but I'm afraid we can't compete with the Harlem Globetrotters stuff going on at the Nou Camp. Fiorentina are back on top after their equaliser, and they have a penalty appeal rejected as Alex Telles handles after the ball is driven at him. Then Josip Ilicic, with a free-kick in a central position 25 yards out, skies it. No doubt Lionel Messi would have found the top corner. With a backheel.

Barca are taking the mick...Celta have imploded. Hat-trick hero Luis Suarez turns provider, picking out the run of substitute Ivan Rakitic through the middle. The Croatia midfielder dinks in the fifth. Easy peasy.

Oh. My. Word. This is OUTRAGEOUS!

Lionel Messi takes the penalty...but what's he doing?! He touches the ball about a yard to his right...and Luis Suarez appears to gleefully blast in.

Think Robert Pires and Thierry Henry - with the execution. Even Luis Enrique is belly laughing on the sideline. He had no idea that was coming!

PENALTY

Barcelona 3-1 Celta Vigo

Celta are staggering around punch drunk. Lionel Messi is tugged back by Planas as he dances into the area. The referee points to the spot....

CLOSE!

Barcelona 3-1 Celta Vigo

Only one thing is missing for Barcelona now - a Neymar goal. The Brazilian is put clean through, but Celta keeper Sergio Álvarez takes the sting out of the finish, allowing his defence to hack clear off the line. Respite...

GOAL - Fiorentina 1-1 Inter Milan

Borja Valero (60 mins)

So here's what happened. Cristian Tello, having had an utterly forgettable night, is taken off by manager Paulo Sousa, who brings on Mauro Zarate, the former Birmingham and West Ham man.

And no sooner is the change made, than Fiorentina break free of their frustrations to equalise. Josip Ilicic's cross is deflected and Borja Valero heads in from eight yards. Tello probably doesn't know whether to laugh or cry right now.

Olateru Olu: Barcelona is a team that will win 8 out 10 anytime, any day, any competition. Incredible.

Hassan_Anfield: Whenever I watch Luis Suarez playing, he's always getting better and better.

And there you go. Moments after Celta could have levelled, Barca waltz across the floor with the speed and fluency of a Strictly dancer.

Messi...Neymar...Suarez...goal. It's a familiar tale. 

Lionel Messi surges forward, picks out the run of Neymar in the left channel, he cheekily rolls the ball around the keeper with his studs, squaring for Luis Suarez to bundle in. Game over.

Barcelona 2-1 Celta Vigo

Celta are having a go. Another chance goes begging as Daniel Wass stings the palms of Claudio Bravo. But if they don't take their chances they will be punished...

Fiorentina 0-1 Inter Milan

Cristian Tello continues to labour on the wing for Fiorentina, but it has not been his night so far. At least he is still trying. A positive run in from the right ends as Geoffrey Kondogbia rakes studs down his calf. The referee sees nowt wrong and waves play on. No justice.

Barcelona 2-1 Celta Vigo

Hang on, here's a sign that this game isn't over yet. Celta create a good opening, John Guidetti showing tenacity on the edge of the area to set up Danish midfielder Daniel Wass. But he only troubles the gentleman sat on the front row behind the Barca goal. Little over 20 minutes for the visitors to salvage something.

Fiorentina 0-1 Inter MIlan

The rain is hammering down in Florence. Three sides of the Stadio Artemio Franchi have no roof. It is February. This cannot be much fun for the fans.

Fiorentina 0-1 Inter Milan

You know, the contrast between Fiorentina's two wingers tonight could not be more stark, and it is demonstrated with their first attack of the second half. On the left, Federico Bernardeschi is busy and alert, keeping the move alive by cutting inside when he runs into traffic. When the play is switched to the right, Cristian Tello dribbles the ball out of play for a goal kick. He looks bereft of ideas, and short of confidence.

Barcelona 2-1 Celta Vigo

10 - Luis Suárez has scored 10 goals in his last five games for @FCBarcelona at Camp Nou (all competitions). Unstoppable.

Barcelona 2-1 Celta Vigo

Barca look a different side since the break. The passing is crisper, the movement sharper, the signs ominous for Celta...

SUBSTITUTION

Barcelona 2-1 Celta Vigo

A couple of changes for Barca as soon as they get their noses back in front.

Right-back Dani Alves and midfielder Sergi Roberto are the players hooked, with Aleix Vidal and Ivan Rakitic coming on.

Alves introduces one of his size eights to the side of the bench as he shows his displeasure at that decision.

KICK-OFF

Fiorentina 0-1 Inter MIlan

Inter Milan are 45 minutes away from climbing into Serie A's third and final Champions League spot. Can Fiorentina rediscover the spark they showed in the opening 25 minutes?

GOAL - Barcelona 2-1 Celta Vigo

Luis Suarez (59 mins)

It has been coming. Sensational stuff from Barcelona as Luis Suarez guides the home side back in front. Lionel Messi is the architect, clipping through the heart of the Celta defence. Suarez races on to the inch-perfect pass before guiding in a half-volley for his 21st goal in 23 Liga games this season. Unstoppable.

PSG ban Aurier for online insults

A big breaking story from France...

Paris St-Germain right-back Serge Aurier has been suspended indefinitely after appearing to use homophobic language to insult coach Laurent Blanc.

The Ivorian, 23, was also shown calling team-mate Angel di Maria a "clown" as he answered questions from fans on social media app Periscope.

Bet Aurier wishes he went on that 'The Dangers of Social Media' seminar now...

Read the full story here.

Barcelona 1-1 Celta Vigo

Celta haven't offered much of an attacking threat since the restart but when they do, they aren't given much help from the referee. John Guidetti tries to slip past Gerard Pique by whipping the ball back inside the Barca centre-back, who sticks out an arm. Clear handball. Nothing given. No wonder the Swedish striker is fuming.
