Luis Suarez was perhaps understandably upbeat after Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid, having salvaged a point with a late equaliser for the Blaugrana.

However, the striker felt that Barca should have taken all three points against Atleti, who went ahead in the first half through a great strike by Saul Niguez.

Barca did go close, Lionel Messi hitting the post while Suarez also had chances, although he did take time out to praise goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

"Everyone knows that Atletico defends very well and has a great goalkeeper that shows up in every game," he said.

"We deserved to take all three points.

"After being behind for almost the entire game, it's not a bad point.

"It also comes against one of our rivals that will be fighting for the league."

Barca were far from their best, but can’t be too disappointed after coming from behind, away to Atletico, and preserving their unbeaten run.

Ernesto Valverde’s men remain top, and while their lead has been cut, they have also ticked off one of the harder away games they will face this season in the league.
