Barcelona taste defeat at Rayo Vallecano

LaLiga leaders Barcelona suffered their third La Liga defeat of the season as Rayo Vallecano secured a memorable win.

Goals by Alvaro Garcia and Fran Garcia put the mid-table hosts in a commanding position before Robert Lewandowski scored a late consolation.

The defeat may not stop Barca from winning the league with 11 points clear of nearest rivals Real Madrid who have eight matches left.

Barca will host fifth-placed Real Betis this weekend.
