Wasn't given the best of protection from his defenders, but came out and claimed a few crosses with authority.
Provided a decent shield to the Sevilla defence in the first half and was always looking to pressure the touch of Messi in the hole.
Was truly commanding in the air and headed out absolutely everything that came into the box. However, was arguably lucky not to give away a penalty against Messi.
Got the goalscoring ball rolling 15 minutes in when he latched on to a loose ball on the edge of the box to smash a deflected strike home.
Wasn't great with the ball at his feet but was more than up for the battle in the box.
Was up against he pacey Pedro down the left-hand side and let the Barca man get beyond him too easily on a few occasions.
Was extremely influential in the middle of the park and provided a genuine threat with his dipping free kicks into the box. .
Started the match at a high tempo and was always looking to get into the faces of the Barcelona midfielders.
Cleverly flicked the ball to the edge of the box in the build up to Sevilla's opening goal, and showed Montoya a clean pair of heels when hitting the byeline.
Should have equalised for Sevilla in the second half, but sent his half-volley wide from six yards out.
Incredibly unlucky not to get on the scoresheet in the first half when he cannoned a bullet header off the root of the post. Exchanged a lovely one-two with Rakitic in the build up to the first goal.
Constantly made important saves but the pick of the bunch was a double block from Bacca and Gameiro's strikes.
Nearly grabbed a goal in the later stages as his shot from an acute angle went just wide.
Was given a torrid time at the back by Bacca who pushed and pulled him out of his central position all night.
Barely got beyond Alexis Sanchez on the overlap and looked pretty shaky in possession at the back.
Faired much better in the air than his defensive colleague and actually put up a fight against Bacca.
Made the wrong choice a couple of times on the edge of the box and, strangely, opted for the shot rather than the pass.
Assisted Messi's second with a penetrating run and precision pass to the right.
Barely got near Rakitic all night and when involved in the action gave away silly fouls. Lucky not to see red after a deliberate handball.
Opened the Barca scoring in the first half by shifting his body in mid air to score with his back and assisted the last with a neat pass inside to Cesc.
Burst into life just before the break and put Barcelona ahead with a screamer of a volley. Netted his second with a genius first touch and finish into the corner.
Provided a decent outlet with his pace down the left-hand side, which he utilised in abundance in the build-up to Messi's first goal.
