Luis Suarez scored a hat trick as Barcelona came from a goal behind at the Nou Camp to claim a 3-1 victory over Eibar.
Borjan Baston gave the visitors a surprise lead when he followed up on Keko Gontan’s smothered effort in the 10th minute.
But it did not take long for Barcelona to find their groove and it was Suarez who levelled the match when Sandro volleyed the ball across goal for the Uruguayan to head home.
The former Liverpool striker got Barcelona’s second of the night shortly after half time when Neymar found him in a central position for him to bury his shot past Asier Riesgo.
Neymar was the provider once again when he popped a ball to Suarez for him to cut inside on his right foot and smash a shot into the bottom left corner.
The night proved to be the perfect anniversary for Suarez, who made his debut for the Catalan side last year in a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid.
However, Javier Mascherano was shown a straight red card for dissent but that was the only sour note on a night when Barcelona moved second in La Liga behind Real Madrid on goal difference.
Speaking after the match, Suarez said Barcelona were making things difficult for themselves by conceding goals and going behind in matches. “We started off going behind, it was a difficult game because of that and that’s what we need to start looking at. Last season we conceded very few goals,” the striker told Spanish television.
“These are phases in which every time the opponents get forward they score and we have to correct that.”
