Barcelona have tightened their grip at the top of the LaLiga standings after an electric 2-1 comeback win in an El Clasico against bitter rivals Real Madrid on Sunday.


Franck Kessie’s stunner in added time gave Barca a well-earned victory that left second-placed Real trailing the leaders by 12 points with only 12 games to be played.

Only a major letdown would take the title away from Barcelona, who are set to lift their first LaLiga title in four years.

It is also a major boost in confidence to Barcelona who earned their third consecutive win in all competitions against their bitter rivals for the first time in over a decade.

They will host Real Madrid again in two weeks in the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi final tie after winning 1-0 away at Santiago Bernabeu.

With Real having to share their focus on their Champions League quarter final tie against Chelsea in their effort to win back-to-back European championships, Barca are starting to dream with the LaLiga and Copa del Rey double.
