Barcelona beat Ferencvaros 3-0 in their fifth Champions League match of the 2020-21 season.
The La Liga side has struggled in the domestic circuit but are looking exceptionally good.
They have won all five of their matches in Europe now, this one without Messi in the squad again.
Head coach Ronald Koeman reserved special praise for Antoine Griezmann who has now scored 5 goals in the last 6 games.
Koeman said at the final whistle: “In the Champions League we are doing well. Five out of five and quite a few goals. Let’s see if we can continue like this in the tournament.
“It is good that they score. We have had a great first half and, in that sense, there is competition in attack. Hopefully everyone is like Griezmann, Braithwaite and Dembélé.
“There is good competition They are raising the level in attack. There were games in which we have not had this effectiveness because that gives the points.”
It was also put to Koeman that Griezmann is a changed man since his interview with former Real Madrid chief Jorge Valdano.
The coach replied: “Well, let Valdano come every week then!”
