Barcelona drew 2-2 at Celta on today, meaning their title rivals can go two points clear by beating Espanyol on Sunday night but Real Madrid remains number one problem going by the use of head-to-head in Li Liga.
Even though the 2-2 draw moved them top, it is a bad result for them as no one expect the Zinedine Zidane’s men to do anything but win against Espanyol on Sunday night. Barca had gone four games without a win at Balaidos, and Lionel Messi hadn’t scored there since 2013. He hoped to score his 700th career goal on this Saturday but his shooting was unusually inaccurate. It was Luis Suarez who scored both of goals for the Blaugrana proving that class is indeed permanent.
