Barcelona had to come from behind yet again on Saturday after going 1-0 down to Rayo Vallecano at the Camp Nou thanks to Raul de Tomas’s strike.

Gerard Pique headed Barcelona back on level terms, before second-half goals from Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez secured the win.

However, it’s far from the first time this season Barcelona have needed to turn a match around, in fact they’ve done it more than any other team in Europe.

The win means Barcelona remain seven points clear at the top of La Liga ahead of Atletico Madrid, now with just 11 games left to play.
