DOHA: Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez all scored in a half-hour of action in Barcelona’s 5-3 win over Al Ahli in a friendly in Doha, Qatar, on Tuesday.

Barcelona took the lead after just eight minutes as Suarez barely got a touch to Lionel Messi’s chip into the box to flick it past the goalkeeper.

It was 2-0 two minutes later when Neymar dispossessed a defender on the touchline and cut it back to Rafinha, and the ball deflected to Messi to lash home a low shot.

Neymar made it 3-0 on 17 minutes when a poor defensive clearance came out to Rafinha, who passed ahead for his fellow Brazilian to score.

With a goal each, Barcelona’s top three stars then departed in the 32nd minute along with Gerard Pique. It was the start of a trend as Luis Enrique made 11 changes in total by the 63rd minute.

AnOmar Abdulrahman penalty brought a goal back for the hosts shortly after half-time, beforePaco Alcacer scored his first goal for Barcelona — though in an unofficial capacity — and Rafinha tacked on a fifth three minutes later.

Al Ahli got a brace from Mohanad Asiri on either side of Barcelona’s final changes to complete the scoring.
