 Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez secure three points for Barcelona

Lacklustre Barcelona beat 10-man Real Betis 2-0 thanks to goals from Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez on Saturday to move closer to retaining their La Liga crown.

Atletico Madrid substitute Antoine Griezmann fired them to a 1-0 home win over struggling Rayo Vallecano, while Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale scored in a 1-0 victory at Real Sociedad.
