Neymar, Suarez, Messi score as Barca beats Sociedad 4-0

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Neymar netted twice while Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi also scored as Barcelona earned another lopsided win by beating Real Sociedad 4-0 to protect its lead of the Spanish league on Saturday.

Neymar opened the scoring midway through the first half from a pass by Dani Alves, who also set up Suarez for the defending champions' second just before halftime.

Neymar took his competition-high tally to 14 soon after the interval as he extended his scoring streak to four straight league matches.
