However, the relative minnows must have been gutted to have this goal disallowed in the final minutes. Javier Espinosa lost his marker and put in an unbelievable overhead kick in to the top corner. Unluckily for the Spaniard he strayed offside in the process and the assistant referee put his flag up.
Two goals from Luis Suarez, as well as strikes from Lionel Messi and Marc Bartra were enough to finish the encounter. With only eight games left in the season, the Blaugranas are looking set to win the Spanish top flight.
With the game already at 3-0, couldn’t they let this one slide?
