FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi lead the Associated Press global football poll this week after thrashing Rayo Vallecano 6-0 in a match where the Argentina striker scored twice.

Lionel Messi heads the player honors with more than twice as many points as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in second.

FC Barcelona was 16 points clear of second-place Bayern Munich, which warmed up for its clash with Arsenal in the Champions League with a 4-0 win over Freiburg. FC Barcelona's opponent in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday, Manchester City, was third after knocking Chelsea out of the FA Cup 1-0.

Xherdan Shaqiri, who scored twice in Bayern's win, was third in the player vote.
