Ten non-Spanish players lined up against the lowly La Liga side as a Lionel Messi brace ensured Barcelona bounced straight back from the shocking 4-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

Enrique is the first Barcelona boss in their history to name ten foreign players in a La Liga game.

Never has a Barcelona side boasted so many non-Spanish players in a starting eleven as the Catalan giants have always adopted a home-grown player policy.

South American stars Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar helped Barcelona to victory after a bright start gave way to a difficult game.

Messi scored his 145th brace for his club on his 600th career appearance as Barcelona just about did enough to see off Leganes.
