It didn’t take Barcelona long to take the lead against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday afternoon.
With Real Madrid losing 1-0 at Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, Barcelona knew that a win over Rayo Vallecano at the Nou Camp would take them top of La Liga.
On five minutes, Xavi slipped in Luis Suarez to finish for the opener and it looks like Barcelona should win at a canter.
Luis Suarez is in red hot form, scoring six of Barcelona’s last 10 goals in all competitions.
And it was Xavi’s 113th assist in La Liga.
Meanwhile, Neymar was sitting at home watching the game – as the Brazilian was suspended for the match with Rayo.
After a fine season, Neymar has looked a little jaded of late and you can imagine Barcelona want him fresh for the clashes with Manchester City and Real Madrid coming up.
Neymar uploaded an Instagram video of himself watching the goal and congratulated Luis Suarez with the following message:
“Gooooollllll buenaaaa luchoooo @luissuarez9”.
