Impressive offensive display from the Brazilian who contributed to a number of attacks. His willingness to get forward left him out of position at times, but Celta failed to expose him.
Unusually quiet performance from the left-back, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. A bit reckless with a challenge at the end of the first half.
Struggled at times defensively. Nearly conceded a penalty with a handball when the game was 1-0. Also got undressed by former Barcelona player Andreu Fontas.
The maestro for Barcelona in midfield. Orchestrated a number of attacks, and showed his class with a great ball to set up Messi for the game's second goal. Subbed off at half-time.
Typically committed performance from the Argentine. Strong with his tackling and positionally sound.
As is expected, he was a spectator in the attacking third. He was a rock defensively, making a crucial tackle late in the first half to bail out Bartra.
Very accurate with his passing. Ruled just offside after scoring with a great finish off a Messi through-ball.
Made a number of great runs, and scored the second goal with a nice finish to round the keeper. Overshadowed a bit by the play of Neymar.
Terrorized Hugo Mallo with some lovely skill on the ball. Very lively performance from the Brazilian, who scored the game's first goal and added a second with a superb finish in the second half.
Couldn't get the better of Johnny Castro for the greater part of the match. Acted as playmaker, providing two brilliant passes to set up both Neymar goals.
Performed admirably in goal, making a number of great saves to keep the scoreline respectable.
Defensively susceptible, he was exposed by the skill and pace of Neymar. In over his head and was perhaps lucky not to be sent off after committing a number of fouls.
Injured midway through the first half after a collision with Alexis forced him out of the game.
Made a number of vital tackles to break up some promising attacks. All over the field in defence.
The former Barcelona player showed flashes of potential. Got forwards well at times, but was beaten far too easily by Neymar on the game's third goal.
Dealt with Messi about as well as you could ask for. Beaten on occasion, but considering who he was up against it was an impressive performance from the Bilbao loan man.
Provided good energy in midfield, but was overwhelmed by the crisp, precise passing of Iniesta and Fabregas.
Should have broken the clean sheet after a great setup by Orellana. Couldn't escape Mascherano and Alba's marking.
Tried to track back on the third Barcelona goal but Neymar had no problems eluding his challenge. Quiet in attack, lacked composure in and around the penalty area.
Created a number of chances in attack. Tested Valdes with a good free kick early on. Provided a wonderful ball in for Fernandez who should have done better with the finish.
Virtually ineffective in attack. Had one clear chance that was turned aside by Pinto, but hardly saw much of the ball.
