Fc Barcelona has leapfrogged their challenger Atletico Madrid to the top four of La Liga’s table.
The Catalan side came from behind to defeat Diego Simeon side by 4 goals to 2 for the first time in six meetings.
Atleti got off to a flying start at the Camp Nou when Yannick Carrasco lashed on to a Luis Suarez pass to give the Madrid side an early lead in the eighth minute of start.
Though the home side has failed to register a goal in their last three league meetings, it took them just 2 minutes after going behind to score an equaliser.
Jordi Alba with a sublime finish met a cross from opposite full-back Dani Alves, struck the ball first-time mid-flight with his left foot which floated through the air and nestled beautifully in the top right corner of Jan Oblak’s net.
Barcelona completed the turnaround in the space of 20 minutes thanks to a deflected header from Gavi, who received the ball from debutant Adama Traoré making the first appearance of his second spell at Barcelona.
Barcelona Moves to Fourth on Table
Ronald Araújo reacted quickest to a rebound after Gerard pique struck the crossbar to increase Barcelona’s lead three minutes before halftime.
Dani Alves made it four in the second half with his first goal since his return to Camp Nou.
The game seemed over for Diego Simeone’s side but could only muster a consolation after a Suárez header from close range gave them a second goal with 30 minutes remaining of regulation time.
Dani Alves was impressive on the day but received a straight red card for a nasty challenge on Carrasco.
Despite going down to 10 men, Xavi Hernandez’s men saw the result to move into the top four at the expense of their rivals.
