Luis Suarez hailed Lionel Messi as "the best in the world" after his Barcelona team-mates crowned a superb Copa del Rey comeback against Athletic Club, with the holders triumphing 4-3 on aggregate.

Messi's free-kick prowess is becoming less surprising by the match in 2017, after he also converted from dead-ball situations in the first leg and at Villarreal on Sunday to snatch a 1-1 draw in La Liga.

With Barcelona five points off the pace in the top flight, having played a game more than Madrid, Suarez conceded it was important to stay on track for a third consecutive Copa del Rey crown.

"[The win] changes a lot," he said. "It's what we wanted and needed.

"We were reassured that we are working well and the results would come."

Suarez hit three figures in his 120th Barcelona appearance and added: "The important thing is that the goal I scored served to help us advance in the Copa, which is what we wanted."
