Barca see off Ajax comfortably

22 October 2014, 06:59

Barcelona - Neymar and Lionel Messi have maintained their lethal partnership with a goal apiece as Barcelona swept aside Ajax 3-1 in Champions League Group F on Tuesday.

The Argentine was the provider, slipping the ball through for Neymar to hit the opener with a clinical finish into the corner after seven minutes, the he struck midway through the half to put the hosts in control.

Andres Iniesta threaded the ball through to the Argentine and his shot from the centre of the penalty area squirmed under keeper Jasper Cillessen.

Messi now has 69 Champions League goals, as does Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo with the duo two off all-time leading scorer Raul.

Anwar El Ghazi pulled back a late goal for Ajax before Sandro Ramirez settled any late jitters.

Barcelona are second in the group behind leaders Paris St Germain.
