Barcelona pick up an important win over Atletico as they look to keep pace with Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.
Yet again, Neymar was Barca's best, and Lionel Messi scored the crucial late goal in a dramatic win.

For the second week in a row, Barcelona left it late to win a league game and for the second week in a row, it was Lionel Messi who popped up when most needed. If last week's win against Leganes led to more questions than celebrations, Sunday's win at Atletico Madrid will provide Barca with the belief they need to go on and challenge Real Madrid for the title.

Rafinha had given Luis Enrique's side a second half lead only for Diego Godin to head in an equaliser soon after. With the draw looming,...
