Barca Extend La Liga Lead To Nine Points

Barcelona have extended their lead at the top of La Liga to nine points with a win over Las Palmas

Luis Suarez scored his 41st goal of the season early on after he was found by Jordi Alba at the back post.

But with Barca shaky in defence, Las Palmas equalised through Willian Jose after Jonathan Vieira’s clever flick.

Neymar got the eventual winner after tucking in a rebound following Lionel Messi’s close-range shot.

After a testing encounter, Luis Enrique’s side lead Atletico Madrid by nine points and Real Madrid by 10 points, with both teams in action on Sunday.

But there will be plenty to encourage Arsenal as Las Palmas were able to test the Barca defence, although their threat was reduced once Vieira went off with a second-half injury.
