Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez's partners launch joint business venture

With Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez regularly combining to such deadly effect on the pitch, perhaps its only natural their partners attempt to do likewise from a business standpoint.

Indeed, the Barcelona duo's significant others, Antonella Roccuzzo (Messi's fiancee) and Sofia Balbi (Suarez's wife), have paired up to open a new boutique in the city in conjunction with Argentinian fashion designer Ricky Sarkany.

Both Messi, Suarez and a clutch of other Barca stars attended the grand opening of the Sarkany store on Wednesday, along with ex-teammate Cesc Fabregas, who turned up to show his support alongside partner Daniella Semaan.

However, not to sully the occasion, but while Messi and his cohorts were busy opening shoe shops, Real Madrid stuffed Celta Vigo to formally take the La Liga title out of Barca's hands going into the final game of the season.

Doubtless a night of mixed emotions for the Catalan boys.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
