Barcelona edged back to the top of LaLiga on Saturday night but Iago Aspas’s 88th-minute equaliser for Celta Vigo cost them two crucial points as they were held to a 2-2 draw.

Barca were looking to capitalise on playing first, with rivals Real Madrid not in action until Sunday’s trip to Espanyol.

A Luis Suarez brace, either side of Fedor Smolov’s 50th-minute equaliser, had them on course to do so but Aspas’s late free-kick provided what could be a crucial twist in this tight title race.

Atletico Madrid strengthened their grip on third place with a 2-1 win over Alaves thanks to second-half goals from Saul Niguez and Diego Costa, the latter a penalty.

Joselu pulled a goal back for the visitors from the penalty spot in stoppage time.
