The second goal came from Martin Braithwaite scoring his first goal for Barcelona with an assist from Lionel Messi who works it on with a feather of a header to the former Middlesbrough man who sidefoots it powerfully into the top of the net. 

The third goal landing from a stunning pass from Lionel Messi setting off Jordi Alba down the left who springs through and beats the goalkeeper at the near post.

The final goal assisted by Luis Suarez locates Lionel Messi on the left who cuts confidently inside the box, beats two Mallorca, men and flashes in a right-footed shot into the goal.
