#3 Hit: Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho was arguably Barcelona's best player on the night as he continued to cause problems to the hosts from wide areas and while drifting inside whenever he had space and time to do so.

The Brazilian was involved extensively in almost everything the visitors knitted together on the night and tested Samir Handanovic's shot-stopping abilities from time to time.

The 26-year-old has made the transition from being a central play-maker to a menacing wide man under Ernesto Valverde at the Nou Camp and is increasingly looking likely to establish himself as an influential figure at the club for years to come.

Coutinho's nimble movement and burst of pace proved to be a challenge to the hosts as they fought tooth and nail to try and nullify the talented Brazilian, who showed no signs of slowing down or sympathy as he squared up against players and beat them at will.
