With Messi back, Barcelona faces free-falling Sevilla

With nine matches remaining for Barcelona, can the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez do something memorable that takes the title from the grasp of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Zinedine Zidane?

Suarez then nicked the ball off Rico from behind and teed up his superstar strike partner, but the latter's lobbed effort was plucked out of the air by the goalkeeper.

Messi is no stranger to humanitarian causes, as earlier this year he was in Egypt as an ambassador for Tour N' Cure, a campaign promoting the African nation as a medical destination for patients with Hepatitis C.

Messi was recently slammed by Argentina fans for the four-match ban he picked up for verbally abusing an assistant referee in the 1-0 World Cup qualifying win over Chile recently.

Antonio Trillanes IV said corruption remained "rampant" in the government and called the firing of Sueno "a convenient excuse". There was no immediate indication of whether Sueno would also face criminal charges over the alleged offenses.

Depending on Madrid's result at Leganes, Barca will at least hope they can go top on Sunday night when they visit Malaga only hours after Real Madrid host city rivals Atletico Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Luis Enrique insists that he will take a sabbatical for a minimum of a year following his departure from Camp Nou. He missed the win at Granada last weekend through suspension, and began a four-game worldwide suspension just before Argentina's World Cup qualifier against Bolivia after insulting a linesman.

Sevilla showed some improved signs of life as they controlled more of the ball at the start of the second half although without threatening the Barca goal, as Messi saw an audacious chipped shot collected by Sergio Rico on 51 minutes. Sevilla, who had Vitolo sent off for a second booking in the 91st minute, are fourth on 58 points. "We have to believe again".

Forward Alvaro Morata scored a hat trick and playmaker James Rodriguez also found the net to secure Madrid's fifth win in a row.

Nationally, distracted driving took the lives of 3,477 in 2015, a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report states. In addition to the #77 program expansion, Porrino said an enforcement blitz has been initiated by the State Police.

Thankfully for the Blaugrana, Lionel Messi, 29, has served his 1-game suspension and will be back in the lineup when Sevilla rolls into Camp Nou for this April 5 match.

Ivan Rakitic headed just wide of the target on 18 minutes before the Sevilla defence combined to clear the danger after a good Sergi Roberto delivery from the right, after he had been played in behind the visiting defence by Messi.

The Argentinian is now La Liga's scoring leader with 25 goals, he's tallied 41 goals overall this season in 40 matches.

"It's not easy. We all thought that we were going to get past Leicester". It is 17th in the 20-team standings, only one spot above the relegation zone. Rodriguez scored once and Morata scored a hat-trick on Madrid's 4-2 victory.
