Barcelona's Semedo out for 5 weeks with hamstring injury

How and where to watch the La Liga week 25 clash between Barcelona and Girona at Camp Nou on Saturday

With 13 minutes left to play, Suarez completed his hat-trick as Ousmane Dembele managed to pick out the striker with an inch flawless cross from the right-hand side and Suarez made no mistake.

Barcelona's fourth goal came on the stroke of half-time with Girona's defenders left begging for the interval after Messi's perfectly-weighted pass found Coutinho to square for Suarez to tap in.

Barca's run surpasses their previous club record of 31 games in a row without defeat, which was set back in 2010-11, when Pep Guardiola's side won 27 games and drew four between matchday three and 33 of the season.

That means Semedo will miss league games against Las Palmas, Atletico, Malaga and Athletic Bilbao, as well as the second leg against Chelsea at Camp Nou on March 14.

"It was a resounding victory".

"Barca midfielder Sergio Busquets added: "He always makes the difference, and that's what makes him the best player in the world and the best in football history".

"It was a tough night". We started badly, but luckily we replied quickly.

But it was Messi who made it 2-1 after 29 minutes, when, running away from goal, he turned and shot low through the Girona defence.

Ronaldo put Real ahead on the stroke of halftime, taking advantage of a clever backheel from Benzema and before celebrating the goal he pointed to his maligned French teammate, who had been subjected to plenty of criticism from the home fans in recent weeks. Benzema had snapped a run of almost three months without a league goal by scoring against Real Betis last weekend and was one of Real's best performers in their fifth consecutive win in all competitions.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Real are finding their form at the ideal time, and that should concern a lot of teams in Europe.

The game could have been about Girona, the team from a wealthy city of 100,000 located 100km north of Barcelona. "Karim played very well and he deserved to score as he contributed so much in our build-up play", Zidane told a news conference.
