Barcelona carried on their ridiculous attacking form from the El Clasico with Roma feeling the wrath of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar in the Champions League on Tuesday.

While the Brazilian was not on the scoresheet in the 6-1 drubbing at the Camp Nou, Messi announced his arrival from that knee injury with a brace, while Suarez was at the double again as well, after putting two past Real Madrid.

Gerard Pique and Adriano were the other scorers as Barcelona guaranteed top spot in Group E.

Much like the El Clasico, this was all about Barcelona and their ridiculous attacking power, as Suarez opened the scoring in just the 14th minute. It was 2-0 four minutes later as Messi, after a wonderful dink pass, produced a typical-Messi finish, before Suarez scored one of the goals of the night, thumping a volley from the edge of the box, like only he can, with the ball swerving from outside and in after hitting the outside of his right boot.

Roma's misery wasn't over that easily as three more goals poured in in the second half, with Messi completing his brace in the 60th minute, four minutes after Pique had put Barcelona 4-0 up. Messi set up Pique for the tap-in, before finishing another himself, at the second attempt, after some brilliant initial play from Neymar and Suarez.

Adriano completed the scoring for Barca in the 77th minute, smashing the ball into the top corner after Neymar missed a penalty, before Edin Dzeko, the former Manchester City striker, grabbed a consolation goal to ensure Roma at least took something from the game.
