Late Messi winner sees Barca sink Atletico

MADRID — Lionel Messi delivered a major boost to Barcelona's La Liga title hopes by scoring a late winner in a  一-0 victory at Atletico Madrid on Sunday.

Messi is the favourite to win a record-breaking sixth Ballon d'Or in Paris on Monday and he came up trumps again for Barca at the Wanda Metropolitano, where an even contest looked destined to finish goalless.

The Argentinian's  八 六th-minute strike, after a neat one-two with Luis Suarez, keeps Barcelona level on points with Real Madrid at the top of the table while leaving Atletico with a mountain to climb if they are to rejoin the race.

Atletico now sit six points adrift of both Real and Barca, with those two also having a game in hand which will be played out in the season's first Clasico at the Camp Nou on December  一 八.

It means Atleti could conceivably head into the Christmas break nine points off the lead, a significant gap, particularly considering they will have to play away against both Barca and Real Madrid in the second half of the season.

Antoine Griezmann was whistled on his return to his former club, whom he left for  一 二0 million euros (US$ 一 三 二. 三 million) to join Barcelona in the close season, while rats were dropped on the plaque that still bears his name outside the stadium.

But Messi scored his  一 二th goal of the season and sixth in his last five games. He has  二 五 in  二 七 now against Atletico but this was his first at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Pique reprieved

Barcelona were fortunate not to be reduced to  一0 men in the second half when Gerard Pique escaped a second yellow card for a late challenge on Alvaro Morata.

They rode their luck in the opening  二0 minutes too, marooned in their own half and able only to survive thanks in large part to their goalkeeper.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen made two excellent point-blank saves although was given the chance to as Mario Hermoso found himself free at the back post but shot straight at him before Morata met Kieran Trippier's corner but failed tohead into the corner.

There had been little Ter Stegen could do about Hermoso hitting the post early on as his pull-back was diverted almost disastrously by Barca left-back Junior Firpo but somehow stayed out.

Yet after a dizzying opening spell, Barcelona stabilised and finished the half the stronger. Messi skipped free down the right but was ushered out, Suarez fired wide and Pique's header bounced up onto the crossbar.

The interval allowed Atletico to regroup. Thomas Partey should have scored but opted to pass while Suarez was generous too, shooting straight at Jan Oblak after Barca had broken in numbers.

Another break saw Messi skip through three attempts to bring him down, only for Griezmann to blaze over at the back post. Atletico went close with  二0 minutes left but Angel Correa's drive was cleared by Sergi Roberto, with Ter Stegen beaten.

Pique had been lucky to avoid a second yellow card for a sliding challenge on Morata moments before.

Instead, Barca pressed on and with four minutes left, Messi delivered the game's defining moment.

Thomas Lemar's crossfield ball was cut out and on the break, Messi drifted in from the right, past two tired Atletico defenders. He bounced the ball off Suarez and steered the ball into the bottom right-hand corner.

Earlier on Sunday, third-placed Sevilla stayed just one point behind Real and Barca with a  一-0 victory over Leganes.
