Barcelona fail to end their winless streak since 2015 against Celta Vigo.
Barcelona drop two crucial points against Celta Vigo that will see Real Madrid take a two-point lead if they win against Espanyol on Monday.
Real Madrid are handed a huge lead as 2-2 draw in Municipal de Balaidos allows Los Blancos to lead the La Liga table with two points if they defeat the Catalan side, Espanyol de Barcelona, on 29th.
Quique Setien’s XI were looking lost at times as they struggled defensively. In the past four La Liga fixtures, it was Barca looking to break the opposition’s defensive line to come ahead, but Óscar García’s squad were in an attacking mindset as they had their own battles to fight against relegation.
Many might feel that the 2-2 scoreline is justified as both sides had many chances to get ahead, especially with Celta missing two clear chances in both the first and second half.
Barca should be grateful that the scoreline remained a draw as their performance in the second half put them at the risk of losing much more.
With just a few points defining the champions in this season of La Liga, every match has to be given equal weightage, but Barca’s performance against Celta is worrisome as they continue to make mistakes that might cost them more than just two points in the future.
Here are the three positive takes from Vigo.
