Luis Suarez maintained his incredible form in front of goal last night, scoring four times in Barcelona's 6-0 victory over Sporting Gijon to keep the Catalan club atop La Liga with three games to go.
Lionel Messi started the rout with a rare headed goal - but after that Suarez took control of game. The former Liverpool man, who scored four against Deportivo La Coruna in midweek, hit the back of the net just after the hour mark, before bagging two penalties and rounding off his day with an 88th minute effort.
Neymar was also on the scoresheet during the win, which came after victories from title rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid, with a penalty of his own after 85 minutes.
Suarez's goal haul means he's now La Liga's top scorer with 34 goals to his name - three more than second-placed Cristiano Ronaldo.
He also made his own small piece of history yesterday - by doing something that neither Messi or his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo has been able to achieve. The former Liverpool ace is the only player in La Liga history to score four times in back-to-back games.
While Suarez's incredible goal burst may have come too late to help Barcelona remain in the Champions League, he has helped keep his side just ahead in the race for the league title.
The Catalan club are level on points with Atletico but remain top by virtue of their superior head-to-head record against Diego Simeone's side, while Real are just a point back.
Zinedine Zidane's side fought back from a 2-0 deficit against Rayo Vallecano to win 3-2 thanks largely to a Gareth Bale brace. The result came at a price however; Karim Benzema limped off to join Cristiano Ronaldo in the treatment room ahead of their Champions League semi-final against Manchester City on Tuesday.
Is Luis Suarez the best striker in the world at the moment?
