Barcelona 3 Rayo Vallecano 1
By Michael McCann
Barcelona came-from-behind to win for a fifth time in La Liga, defeating Rayo Vallecano 3-1 at the Camp Nou.
Real Madrid loanee Raúl de Tomás gave Vallecano a surprise lead, his 11th La Liga goal this season a beautiful curling shot.
Lionel Messi intervened, crossing for Gerard Piqué to head in before half-time, then scoring a penalty soon after the break.
Luis Suarez sealed victory with his 20th goal this season.
Barcelona are unbeaten in 15 La Liga games, winning 12 – struggling Rayo have lost their last six.
