On a day where both Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid won, Barcelona needed to win their game if they wanted to stay on top of the Spanish league.
Indeed, after a poor run of form, Barcelona has surrendered a 9 points lead and found themselves levelled with Atletico Madrid and only one point over the Real Madrid.
Barcelona responded brilliantly by beating a poor Deportivo La Coruna side by 8-0. This was a humiliating defeat for Deportivo, who was playing at home. However, with the form demonstrated by Luis Suarez and his mates, it would have been difficult for Deportivo to stop them.
Luis Suarez has a magnificent game where he scored four goals and contributed 3 assists for Barcelona. This ended a losing streak which saw Barcelona lose 3 times in succession.
The first goal came in the 11th minute when Suarez connected well with a Rakitic corner. He added a second in the 24th minute after collecting an excellent pass from Lionel Messi. These two goals gave Barcelona a two-goal cushion at half-time.
After the break, Luis Suarez will assist Rakitic for the third goal only 3 minutes after the restart. Five minutes later, Suarez will complete his hat-trick five minutes later and add another goal to make it 5-0 for Barcelona. The remaining goals will be scored by Messi, Neymar, and Batra.
The result helps Barcelona maintain their position at the top of the league and keep their dreams of winning the title alive. With four games to go, the Spanish league remains quite open, and it will be difficult to predict which team will win it.
Luis Suarez has admitted that Barcelona had been poor in recent weeks, but now they are ready for the challenge.
