Lionel Messi and Barcelona enjoy win as Fernando Torres lifts Atletico

Luis Suarez scored a hat trick thanks to some cheeky help from Lionel Messi as Barcelona defeated Celta Vigo 6-1 on Sunday.

Messi, who sat out Barca's Copa del Rey match in midweek after having a treatment for kidney stones, returned to score the opener with a long free kick in the 28th minute.

Celta equalised before the break through a John Guidetti penalty, but Barcelona pulled away in the second half.

Suarez scored twice to put Barca 3-1 up, and he got his third in unusual fashion in the 82nd minute. Lionel Messi stepped up to take a penalty, but instead laid the ball off for an oncoming Suarez to smash home and complete his hat trick.

Ivan Rakitic and Neymar scored late on to complete the rout.

Fernando Torres scored in the opening two minutes and the goal held up for Atletico to win.

Fernando Torres scored in consecutive matches for the first time in almost two and a half years as Atletico Madrid edged past Getafe 1-0 to leapfrog rivals Real Madrid into second place in the Primera Division.

Torres, who scored the final goal in the 3-1 win over Eibar last week, took little time to bag his fourth goal of the season.

With less than two minutes gone, the 31-year-old sprinted free from his marker at the back post and tapped the ball into the home net from Yannick Carrasco's cross despite pressure from Getafe goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

Ever Banega celebrates his goal for Sevilla.

Sevilla boosted their chances of European qualification as they stretched their unbeaten run to 12 matches with a hard-fought 2-0 victory over Las Palmas at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

Unai Emery's team endured a frustrating opening hour against Las Palmas, but they eventually turned on the style and ran out winners thanks to goals from Kevin Gameiro and Ever Banega.

The victory keeps Los Rojiblancos in fifth position in the Primera Division, eight points behind Villarreal and five ahead of Athletic Bilbao, who lost to Real Madrid on Saturday.

Eibar boosted their hopes of finishing in the European places after beating struggling Levante 2-0 and picking up their first win in four matches.

Borja Baston continued his rich goalscoring form by putting the hosts ahead after 37 minutes, and an own goal by Tono Garcia after the break sealed the win for the Basques, who move to within four points of Sevilla in fifth place.

Real Sociedad made it eight goals in their last two matches as a 3-0 win at home to Granada moved them into the top 10.

Teenage midfielder Mikel Oyarzabal bagged a brace, with Cristian Jonathas also on the scoresheet in a comfortable victory against a Granada side who stay second from bottom.
