Suarez inspires Barca, Real and Atletico in derby stalemate

- Only Loic Remy has scored as many goals as Paulinho in the last six minutes of the games in LaLiga this season (3).

Suarez broke his five-game goal drought with a scavenger's effort after an Ivan Cuellar error rendered a promising Leganes start redundant, and the hosts' goalkeeper was left helpless by a deflection as the Uruguay global struck again in the second half, with Paulinho tapping in a late third.

Barca lead the standings on 34 points from 12 games, seven clear of Valencia who visit Espanyol on Sunday, while Real are third on 24, level on points with Atletico in fourth.

Barca were nowhere near their fluent best, but ground out their 11th win from 12 games this term regardless.

Leganes had a chance to restore parity in the 35th minute through Alexander Szymanovski but Marc Ter Stegen was on hand to make a great save maintain Barcelona's lead into the break.

With 60 minutes gone, however, Suarez all-but secured the three points for Barcelona.

Leganes made a bright start in the opening stages but Barcelona went ahead when goalkeeper Cuellar spilled Paco Alcacer's cross and Suarez pounced from virtually on the goal-line in the 28th minute.

Public outrage against the administration's original decision to overturn the Obama ban was not limited to the US. Where 5 million of the giant pachyderms once roamed African savannahs, there are now just 400,000.

Lionel Messi's dinked pass released Alcacer and after Cuellar parried his first effort, Suarez drilled home the rebound for his second of the afternoon.

"It was something that could have happened and it did, there's nothing we can do about it", said Valverde. They made it hard to play inside, it was a complicated game, and I do not deny it.

Barca's joy was tempered moments later when Gerard Pique was booked for bringing down Nordin Amrabat meaning he will be suspended for next weekend's top of the table clash at Valencia.

Barca will play away to Juventus in the Uefa Champions League next Wednesday.

While Leganes have done well, they have only found the net nine times, so they don't carry much of a threat going forward.

"Our performance was embarrassing", Alaves coach Gianni De Biasi said.
