Two goals from Lionel Messi saw Barcelona ease past Axax 0-2 in the Champions League and they sit in second place in Group F on 9 points, one behind Paris Saint-Germain.
Ajax had to play the final twenty minutes after Joël Veltman was sent off for a second bookable offence, a particularly bad foul.
Messi equalled Real Madrid legend Raul as the top goalscorer in the history of the Champions League on 71 goals.
Athletic Bilbao lost 0-2 to FC Porto, Martinez and Brahimi scoring the goals. Athletic have only one point from four games and are firmly rooted to the bottom of Group H.
