Highlights: Celta Vigo 2-2 Barcelona – Aspas late strike holds the Catalans Still.

Published

Celta Vigo are unbeaten in their last five home matches against Barcelona in La Liga

 

Barcalona are topping the La Liga table with just a point but Real Madrid could establish a two point lead once they defeat Espanyol on Sunday. This is a dent to Barcelona’s title dream.

Luis Suarez headed Barca in front from Lionel Messi’s clever free-kick but Fedor Smolov levelled from Okay Yokuslu’s pass.

Suarez then swivelled and smashed in a great strike – from another Messi pass – but his ex-Liverpool team-mate Aspas’ perfect low free-kick rescued Celta.

Lionel Messi is yet to score a goal in three games so far, he is still on 699 career goals for Barca and Argentina. But he did manage to reach his 250th assist of his Barca career for Suarez second goal tonight.

The Six time Ballon d’or winner is the top goalscorer with 21 goals and top assister with 17 assist in La Liga this season.
