MADRID, Feb 29: Barcelona came from behind to equal a Spanish record of 34 games unbeaten in all competitions by moving eight points clear at the top of La Liga with a 2-1 win over Sevilla.

Sevilla were the last side to beat Barca back in October and deservedly struck first through Vitolo.

However, as so often, Barca recovered from a slow start thanks to Lionel Messi�s brilliant free-kick and Gerard Pique�s winner early in the second-half.

Luis Enrique�s men have now matched Real Madrid�s record run from the 1988-89 season and in doing so moved 12 points clear of third-placed Madrid. Atletico Madrid remain Barca�s closest challengers after beating Madrid 1-0 on Saturday.

�We are in great form, but records don�t mean anything. At the end of the day everything is judged by titles,� Pique told Movistar+.

�Our season is well on track, but we need to finish it off.�

Sevilla were a constant threat on the counter-attack, but should have taken the lead from a set-piece when Timothee Kolodziejczak somehow blazed over from point-blank range.

Barca nearly went in front in spectacular fashion as Messi�s audacious attempt from a corner hit the post and Luis Suarez then blasted the rebound off the crossbar.

Sevilla did eventually make the breakthrough in the 20th minute, thanks to a fine breakaway as Benoit Tremoulinas�s cross from the left was slotted home at the back post by Vitolo.

However, as ever Messi came to the fore when Barca needed him most and the five-time World Player of the Year levelled with a stunning free-kick high into the far corner 11 minutes later.

Barca upped the pace after the break and were rewarded when brilliant link-up play between Messi and Suarez teed up Pique to tap home from close range. � AFP
