Barcelona Stage Come-From-Behind Win

Barcelona restored their seven-point lead at the top of LaLiga as they came from behind to beat Rayo Vallecano 3-1 at Camp Nou on Saturday.

With the gap earlier cut to four points after Atletico Madrid beat Leganes 1-0, Barca went into the contest under pressure and were a long way from their best in the first half.

And Rayo threatened to hand Atleti’s prospects of overhauling the defending champions a boost when they opened the scoring through Raul de Tomas’ fine strike.

However, Gerard Pique levelled in the 38th minute before Lionel Messi’s penalty and a late third from Luis Suarez ensured Barca still have plenty of breathing room at the summit.
