Betis dominated and were ahead when Alex Alegria scored a goal.
Barca were furious not to be level when Aissa Mandi hooked the ball away from about a foot behind the line, with La Liga not having goalline technology.La Liga is the only one of Europe’s top five leagues not to have goalline technology, La Liga has continually said it will not bring in the system because it is too expensive.
But Suarez came in to the rescue and salvaged a draw for Barcelona after connecting Messi’s pass and scoring a goal.
Barcelona are four points behind Real Madrid, who beat Real Sociedad 3-0 later on Sunday.
They are above third-placed Sevilla on goal difference, after Jorge Sampaoli’s side lost 3-1 to Barca’s city rivals Espanyol later on Sunday.
