Luis Suarez is on fire right now. Fresh off the back of scoring four against Valencia in the Copa del Rey, the former Liverpool man was at it again this afternoon against Levante.

While he couldn't score four on this occasion, the Uruguayan international helped Barcelona seal a 2-0 win on the road that helps them tighten their grip on top spot in La Liga.

He found the back of the net in the dying minutes of the game at the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia, rounding off a fast counter-attack led by Lionel Messi. 

The goal means that Suarez is now the top scorer in La Liga with 20 to his name, one more than Cristiano Ronaldo and four more than Neymar. He also has 36 goals across all competitions, making him the club's top scorer ahead of Messi.

You can check out the goal in the video at the bottom of this article.

Barcelona are now clear at the top of La Liga after today's win, which came thanks to a 21st minute own goal from David Navarro own goal and Suarez's late strike.

Luis Enrique's side are unbeaten in 2016 and are clear of Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in the table with a game in hand, while they're also almost certain of reaching the final of the Copa del Rey after the 7-0 win over Gary Neville's Valencia.

Real Madrid will have the chance to respond to Barcelona's win when they take on Granada later on today.

Can Barcelona repeat their historic treble of last season?
