Barcelona 4-0 Real Betis: Lionel Messi marks landmark appearance with a goal
Lionel Messi marked his 500th appearance for Barcelona with a goal and Luis Suarez scored twice as they beat Real Betis 4-0 at the Nou Camp to move back to the top of La Liga.

Betis defender Heiko Westermann put through his own net on the half-hour mark after Neymar had hit the bar from a hugely controversial penalty awarded to the home side, before Messi doubled the lead just three minutes later.

Luis Suarez then added a third within a minute of the restart with a goal that made Barcelona the top scoring Spanish side in history in a calendar year with 179, beating Real Madrid's record from 2014.
