Lionel Messi rewarded a homage by Barca fans with two more goals as they thrashed Osasuna 7-1 to remain top of La Liga.The much-criticized Andre Gomes and Paco Alcacer also bagged doubles, while Javier Mascherano scored his first Barca goal in seven years with the club from the penalty spot.The five-time World Player of the Year responded by opening the scoring two minutes later as he pounced on an error in the Osasuna defense to stroll through on goal and lift the ball over the advancing Salvatore Sirigu.When Denis Suarez was felled in the area seconds later the cry went round the Camp Nou for Mascherano to take the spot-kick.Rakitic obliged by stepping aside to let the Argentine take it and he smashed the ball into the roof of the net for his first goal in 319 Barca appearances.
