La Liga: Luis Suarez, Paulinho shine in Barcelona's 4-0 win

Luis Suarez and Paulinho each scored twice as Barcelona tuned up for Saturday's Clasico with a handsome 4-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna here on Sunday. With a trip to Real Madrid coming on December 23, Barca overwhelmed their visitors at the Nou Camp, with all four finishes coming inside the six-yard box and enough good chances to have at least doubled their eventual tally.

Lionel Messi somehow failed to join his teammates on the scoresheet, hitting the woodwork on three separate occasions and missing several inviting chances including a second-half penalty saved by Ruben Martinez. Victory puts Ernesto Valverde's side two wins clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid and 11 points ahead of Real with a game in hand.
