Luis Suarez scored four goals as Barcelona got their La Liga title charge back on track with an emphatic 8-0 victory at Deportivo La Coruna. Having opened the door to Atletico and Real Madrid with three consecutive league defeats, the Catalans could ill afford another slip up in the title race at Estadio Riazor. Barcelonas Luis Suarez (C) celebrates after scoring against Deportivo But Suarezs 13-minute first-half brace allayed those initial fears for Luis Enriques men, before Ivan Rakitic struck two minutes after the interval to put the game beyond Victor Sanchezs men. Barca then cut loose as Suarez scored twice more before Lionel Messi, Marc Bartra and Neymar completed the rout. The result sees Barca remain top of the Primera Division and heap pressure on title rivals Real, who play Villarreal later on Wednesday night.It took the Catalans just 11 minutes to break the deadlock at the Riazor, with Suarez out-muscling Deportivo centre-back Sidnei to turn Rakitics corner home from close range.The outcome of the game then hinged on the next 13 minutes as Celso Borges spurned two glorious chances to get the hosts level.First he failed to turn Lucas floated ball home on 18 minutes before Claudio Bravo thwarted his tame effort, after Canis deflected shot fell for him six yards out. Luis Suarez celebrates a goal at Deportivo La Coruna And Deportivo were made to pay five minutes later as Messis incisive pass put Suarez through on and the Uruguayan drilled low past Manuel Fernandez.Suarez should have completed his hat-trick on 34 minutes but somehow managed to hit Dani Alves cross over the target from six yards.The miss didnt prove costly, though, as Barca got their third on 47 minutes, with Rakitic volleying Suarezs cross clinically into the back of the net.Suarez did get his third six minutes later as Barca cut the hosts defence to shreds again, with Messis clever pass playing the former Liverpool man through, before he scored his fourth on 64 minutes. Neymar celebrates with team-mate Lionel Messi Lucas spurned another good chance to reduce the arrears for the hosts on 69 minutes and they were punished again as Messi got in on the act, turning Suarezs unselfish cross beyond Manuel 17 minutes from time.Bartra then bagged the goal of the game with Barca seventh, bursting from deep into the Deportivo area before producing a fine finish.And then it was left for Neymar to end his month-long wait for a goal with his sides eighth, converting Suarezs cross from close range on 81 minutes.
