Barcelona looked to be heading for their second La Liga defeat of the season on Saturday, only to snatch a dramatic 3-2 win at Rayo Vallecano.

Late goals from Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez broke the home side’s hearts and secured the win that puts them four points clear at the top.

Opta have shown how Barcelona are starting to make a habit of coming from behind this season.

It was a pretty poor showing from Barcelona, but somehow they still managed to find enough to win, and again without Lionel Messi.
