Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez were all on target as Barcelona eased talk of a club crisis with a 3-1 win over La Liga champions Atletico Madrid Sunday.However, Messi made amends by sealing the three points when he slotted home from close range three minutes from time to move Barca back to within a point of Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.However, when the second goal did come, Atletico had a right to feel hard done by as Messi appeared to use his hand to speed past Gamez before sliding the ball through for Suarez to slot home.Fernando Torres was introduced by Simeone as Atletico searched for an equalizer and he was only denied a ninth goal in 12 games against Barca by Claudio Bravo's quick thinking as the Chilean 'keeper rushed from his line to intercept Mandzukic's dangerous low cross.But in a week where he has dominated the headlines, Messi rounded off his fine performance with a first goal against Atletico in eight games when he pounced on a loose ball to side-foot home.
