MADRID (AP) — Barcelona showed Sunday why it shouldn’t be discarded just yet as a threat in Spanish soccer.

With quality and passion, the Catalan club beat Atlético Madrid 4-2 in the Spanish league to end a five-game winless run against Diego Simeone’s team and move back into the Champions League qualification places for the first time since the third round.

Barcelona played well to take a big lead before hanging tough while playing more than 20 minutes with a man down.

Xavi Hernández’s team conceded early but rallied to a 4-1 lead before Atlético threatened to get back into the game in the second half. Luis Suárez — playing in front of Barcelona fans at the Camp Nou Stadium for the first time since joining Atlético — pulled the visitors closer in the 58th, then Dani Alves was sent off with a straight red card in the 69th after video review saw him stepping on Yannick Carrasco’s leg from behind.

Barcelona held on, though, earning the victory that could prove a turning point in what has been a challenging season so far.
