Barcelona receive Suarez scare ahead of Man Utd clash

Lionel Messi produced yet another moment of magic for Barcelona on Sunday evening, giving them the lead with a ideal free-kick away to Real Betis.

Suarez is likely to be fit for their trip to Old Trafford on April 10 before the second leg at the Nou Camp six days later. The Argentinian lined up a free kick from about 25 yards out. The Argentine International added another goal before the half time to take a two-goal cushion into the second half.

But Messi saved his best for late after substitute Loren Moron had pulled one back for the hosts.

They also only registered three more shots than their opponents - 16 compared to Betis' 13 - although only three of the home side's efforts hit the target. They'll have the chance to build their La Liga lead after Atleti slipped up with a 2-0 loss to Athletic Bilbao on Saturday. Whenever we come to this stadium they treat us very well, very grateful and happy for the victory, which was very important.
