Barcelona's Luis Suarez to miss up to 15 days with ankle injury

Barcelona's Luis Suarez to miss up to 15 days with ankle injury

The hat-trick saw Messi score his 27th, 28th and 29th goals for Barca this season to take his haul of combined assists and goals to a stunning 60 in total.

The Argentine chipped Pau Lopez from an nearly impossible angle and the rival fans applauded Messi for the genius that sparked the goal. I'm very grateful for the response from the fans.

"I don't remember being applauded by rival fans for a goal before", he told Movistar.

Coach Ernesto Valverde has given the non-internationals the week off but is holding voluntary training sessions on Monday and Tuesday.

"With Messi [in your side], everything is easier", he said in his postgame news conference. We're fortunate to be living at a time when he's playing football. And the [Betis] supporters recognised that.

"We have a good advantage, but there are many points left and we have to play as usual without giving anything away".

Betis won 4-3 at Camp Nou in the reverse fixture and Quique Setien's side restricted Barca to only 43.9 per cent possession on Sunday, their lowest figure since Opta began collecting such data in 2004-05.

Messi felt the new formation was one of the keys to Barca's comfortable win as the league leaders moved 10 points clear of Atletico Madrid, who lost at Athletic Bilbao on Saturday.

"Very grateful and happy for the victory, which was very important".

"We couldn't slip up today".

"We played against a team that treats the ball well", Messi added.

The La Liga giants will already be without powerful forward Ousmane Dembele for both games with United after he suffered a hamstring tear against Lyon in midweek.

Suarez appeared to hurt his lower right leg late in the match.
