The hosts, who need a victory to ensure they emerge as Group H winners, were given the perfect start by Gerard Pique, who opened the scoring after just seven minutes.

Gerardo Martino's men consolidated their lead five minutes from the break, with Pedro doubling the advantage on the 40-minute mark, before Neymar added a third shortly before half time to give the Catalans a near-unassailable half-time lead over Neil Lennon's charges.
