Suarez scored within a minute of the second half starting as he brought Barcelona level with a powerful drive from the edge of the box.

Two-goal hero in midweek Neymar was one of five changes to the Barca side due to an abductor injury.

Barca defender Gerard Pique added the comeback against PSG, where they overcame a 4-0 first-leg defeat to win 6-5 on aggregate, had taken its toll.

"We knew that they were coming off an intense game in the Champions League and I think it showed", La Coruna midfielder Alex Bergantinos said.

Arda Turan, Denis Suarez, Andre Gomes - three players you don't generally see starting for Barcelona, and today showed why.

Barca's hopes of retaining their LaLiga title suffered a massive blow on Sunday as they fell to a shock 2-1 defeat at the Riazor a few hours before title rivals Real Madrid recorded a late victory of the same scoreline at home to Real Betis.

Pique answered accusations of tiredness after the Herculean feat of Wednesday night stating: "We're not machines and despite being favourites to win the game, Depor battled and need to be commended for the win which they deserved".

The win could have been even more emphatic for Deportivo when Faycal Fajr went clean through on goal but fired his shot straight at Ter Stegen.

However, from the resulting corner Ter Stegen was found wanting as he spilled Javier Mascherano's miscued clearance and Joselu was on hand to smash into an unguarded net.

Alejandro Arribas saw his header come back off the post, but once again having survived the initial threat, Barcelona conceded from the resulting corner.

Real Sociedad needed a victory at its Anoeta Stadium to stay within one point of fourth-placed Atletico Madrid, the first team in the qualifying zone for next season's European competition. Both teams have 48 points, but Villarreal are ahead on goal difference.
