90 in 90: Barcelona 2 Atletico Madrid 0

By Michael McCann

Late goals from Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi helped Barcelona beat ten-man Atletico Madrid, and move 11pts clear in La Liga.

Atletico Madrid needed victory to realistically stay in the title hunt, but had Diego Costa sent-off for abusing referee Jesus Gil Manzano midway through the first-half.

In the 85th minute Jordi Alba fed Suarez, who scored with a beautiful curling shot, before Messi made it 2-0 a minute later.

Barcelona haven’t lost in 19 league games, the longest current unbeaten run in the top 5 European leagues.
