STORY: In-form Luis Suarez scored the winner as Barcelona came from behind to secure a 2-1 victory over nine-man Atletico Madrid and move three points clear at the top of La Liga with a game in hand on Saturday (January 30).

Atletico started the stronger with ‘Koke’ (Jorge Resurrecion) putting them ahead after 10 minutes before Lionel Messi equalised for Barca following a fine team move on the half hour.

Suarez struck his 31st goal in as many games after 38 minutes and a wild challenge from Atletico full back Filipe Luis earned him a red card before halftime.

Diego Godin was also given his marching orders after receiving a second yellow card for a mistimed tackle on Suarez midway through the second half.

Barcelona moved on to 51 points, three ahead of Atletico, and have a game in hand. Third-placed Real Madrid have 44 points and face Espanyol on Sunday.
