Barcelona doing all they can to keep up in La Liga title race

Neymar was in inspired form for Barcelona.
Neymar was among the players who kept Barcelona's hopes alive with a goal against Las Palmas.

It's all Barcelona can do to keep up. The away trip to Las Palmas might have presented a challenge earlier in the season -- travel, the Canarian fortress, Quique Setien's front-foot hocus-pocus -- but at this stage, it was a formality. (Numbers don't lie: through January, Las Palmas were undefeated at home, taking 23 of 33 points. Now, they're -- literally, in their case -- "on the beach," having lost four straight.)

Neymar scored a hat-trick to pad his numbers while Luis Suarez rounded out the scoring, bringing his seasonal total to 36, 28 in La Liga. Incidentally, Suarez and Neymar have combined for 55 goals this year in all competitions, with two games to go. Last year, they had 90. Sometimes football is a simpler game than we think.
