Barcelona go 9 points clear in La Liga with 2-1 win at Las Palmas (Official video)

Barcelona were far from impressive at Las Palmas on Saturday afternoon, but they keep their unbeaten run going and most importantly are nine points clear in La Liga.

All the goals came in the first half.

Luis Suarez opened the scoring on 6 minutes, finishing off a cross from Jordi Alba. The Uruguayan has now scored 25 goals this season in La Liga.

Las Palmas equalised five minutes later thanks to a genius assist from Jonathan Viera, Willian José finished from close range.

The match was won just before half-time when Neymar finished from close range for 2-1, which is how it stayed.

Las Palmas created plenty of chances in the remainder of the encounter but could not finish, with Barcelona appearing to conserve energy for their match at Arsenal.
