FC Barcelona vs Sevilla FC Live: In today's La Liga match, Barcelona meets Sevilla at Camp Nou, Barcelona.
Barca never looked back after Luis Suarez scored with a classic overhead kick on 24 minutes from Messi's cross before Suarez returned the favour to supply Messi for the second goal four minutes later after a blistering run by Neymar.
Messi hit goals 42 and 43 for the season as Sevilla were put to the sword at the Nou Camp.
Racing down the right wing with a couple of Sevilla defenders for company, Messi shrugged off a challenge to send in a low cross with his weaker foot for Luis Suarez.
I know that he wants more minutes, I'm aware of that, but he still has a lot of years of elite football ahead of him and hope they'll be with Barcelona.
Messi was in top form on his return from suspension and scored twice as Barcelona extended Sevilla's slump in a 3-0 win on Wednesday.

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has revealed how much he learned from playing alongside Lionel Messi during his time at previous club Barcelona.
The Argentinean hadn't played a competitive game for a fortnight, but showed he was hungry for action as early as the third minute when he exchanged passes with Luis Suarez before smashing a 20-yard shot against the Sevilla crossbar, reports Xinhua news agency.
A run of five consecutive Sevilla wins was ended by Alaves at the beginning of March, and Sevilla have been unable to recover their mojo since. Barca didn't need Messi to get by the Nazaries, obviously, but the club may need La Liga's leader scorer to help them stay in step with Real.
Barcelona are now sit second in the table, two points behind Real Madrid, who still have one game in hand. A seven-point cushion on Villarreal should be enough to keep Sevilla in the Champions League spots for next season, but there are some serious doubts at the moment. But despite early support from the Catalan club's supporters, this Sevilla slump has provided the flawless excuse for the Blaugrana board to rule him out.
