Luis Suarez scored four and Lionel Messi hit a hat-trick as Barcelona piled more misery on Gary Neville's ill-fated reign as Valencia boss to take an unassailable 7-0 lead in their Copa del Rey semifinal, first-leg Wednesday.Two fine finishes inside 12 minutes from Suarez put Barca in control before Messi rounded off a fine team move for Barca's third.It could have been even worse for Valencia as Neymar hit the post from the penalty spot after Shkodran Mustafi was sent off for bringing down Messi inside the area.However, Messi and Suarez both added two more after the break to make next week's second-leg at the Mestalla a formality.
