Barcelona beat Las Palmas 2 -1 and successfully defended and extended its historic unbeaten streak to 32 games even though they played really badly.
Neymar and Suarez did the scoring
Elsewhere Cristiano Ronaldo put Real in front at half-time with a headed goal but Malaga battled back to make it one all.
The replay showed that C Ron was clearly offside for that goal – so he was lucky.However his luck ran out shortly afterwards and when he missed a potentially matchwinning penalty about 3 minutes later.
Malaga scored a deserved equaliser in the 66th minute when central defender Raul Albentosa, unmarked in the middle of the box, volleyed home a cross from the left.
Zidane’s team are nine points behind Barcelona with 13 games to play.
