Messi keeps Barca on top as Real Madrid pile on the pressure

Star striker Messi scored a late goal to give FC Barcelona a 1-0 win to Atletico Madrid to keep them at the top of the Liga Santander table ahead of Real Madrid.

Both sides had chances to win the game with Barca keeper Marc Andre Ter Stegen making two brilliant first half saves, while Gerard Pique, who had to leave the pitch with an injury in the closing minutes, saw a header bounce back off the crossbar.
