Well that was some performance. After that shock defeat during the weekend, doubts were raised, But in 90 minutes they have turned their doubters into believers that they could actually win the Champions League.

It started off in pretty expectant fashion with Messi getting on the scoresheet in the 4th minute. Celtic could have equalised when they won a penalty but Dembele's effort wasn't a good one and Ter Stegen made a comfortable stop.

It was a sign of things to come as it started to go south for the visitors. Messi got his second minutes later as the scoreline stood at 2-0 at halftime. In the second half, Neymar got on the scoresheet followed by a sumptuous Iniesta volley marking his return in style.

Messi then completed his hat-trick with a simple tap in. All that was missing was Suarez's name on the scoresheet. The Uruguayan was not going to miss out on this opportunity and scored twice in the closing stages of the game.

It will be a long trip back to Scotland for Rodgers and his team

...

FULL TIME: Barcelona 7-0 Celtic

...

91' Celtic players hoping the whistle will blow soon! They have been through the ringer here. Will not be easy to recover from this mentally

...

89' Will Suarez get his hat-trick now? Surely there isn't enough time?

...

88' From the corner the Celtic defence switched off, Messi at the end of a through ball passes it to Suarez across the face and all he needs to do is get his toe on the end of that! 7-0!

...

IT IS SEVEN NOW!! SUAREZ AGAIN!

...

87' MESSI HITS THE POST!!!

...

84' If Barca can keep this level of performance up for the whole UCL campaign they could win it. They aren't favourites this time but on this performance no team would want to face them!

...

82' This could be one of the biggest wins in Champions League history

...

78' At this point you just have to feel for Celtic! Maybe Barca will allow them to score one just to bring their spirits up a bit!

...

Neymar just lobs a ball over the defence finding Suarez's run he controls it on his chest swivels and volleys it home from close range. The defence could only stand and watch!

...

SUAREZ GETS HIS GOAL!!

...

74' Celtic finally get out of their own box after a period of constant pressure from Barcelona thanks to a foul by Rafinha!

...

70' Last 20 minutes of the game. Suarez still not on the scoresheet as of yet

...

68' Rodgers making a couple of changes as Armstrong comes in for Roberts

...

65' Ter Stegen probably wishing he could get in on the act as well! Only has the pleasure of watching this from a front row seat! Unlucky him right?

...

63' This could turn into one of the biggest humiliations in Champions League history if Celtic are not careful!

...


It's pandemonium at the Camp Nou!! Suarez set up Messi and he slid into finish! Celtic's defence is non-existent! They could have taken a day off and Barca would have still scored the same number of goals!

...

60' ITS" 5-0!!! MESSI HAS HIS HATTRICK!

...

59' After playing it around for a while Neymar just pops in a cross and Iniesta just rifles his volley brilliantly into the back of the net! That was some strike!

...

WHAT A GOAL!!! FROM INIESTA!!!

...

58' Barca taking a little easier after that 3rd goal. Biding their time to find an opening

...

53' Barca have started the half just like they ended it, dominating the opposition

...

THAT WAS A BRILLIANT FREE - KICK!!

...

NEYMAR SCORES!!! ITS 3-0!!

...

49' Barca have a free-kick, in Messi range

...

And we are back underway

...

HALF TIME: Barcelona 2-0 Celtic

...

44' OVER THE BAR! Neymar puts in ball that bounces up in front of Messi and he tries to keep the half-volley down but can't do so

...

43' Celtic have the ball in the back of the net but it's a clear offside against the attacker

...

40' Yellow card for Raktiic for a foul on Brown when Celtic were on the break

...

38' How the cameramen are keeping up with the action is a mystery!

...

37' PHEW! This is just insane! It's like watching pros against Amateurs!

...

35' ANOTHER SAVE BY VRIES! Messi finds Neymar, he fakes one defender and then has a shot and the keeper has to get down and make the save! A little more accuracy and that could have gone in!

...

34' OFF THE LINE AGAIN! Rakitic's volley from the corner hits Brown on the line. Celtic escape again! The score should have been 6-0 by now!

...

33' ITS RAINING CHANCES!! Neymar finds Alba on the overlap who cuts it back for Gomes in front of the box but his shot is blocked by two defenders in front of the box!

...

32' TERRIFIC MOVE AGAIN! Messi plays Gomes in between two defenders and he finds SUare on the edge of the box with a cutback. The Uruguayan tries to chip the keeper who was off his line and he wasn't too far away

...

30' Messi now on a hat-trick!

...

29' Celtic have paid for their mistake almost immediately!

...

Barca walk the ball into the net! Neymar and Messi play 1-2s around the entire defence and Messi has a simple tap in at the end of that scintillating move! WOW!
