MESSI , SUAREZ BAG BUT HOSTS ARE PEGGED BACK BY CELTA VIGO AT NOU CAMP

Sunday Observer - - SPORT - ARC E LONA

B- Barcelona dropped their first points at home de­spite both Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez scor­ing when they were held 2-2 by a Iago As­pas in­spired Celta Vigo.

They also lost Sa­muel Umi­titi to a ham­string in­jury in the sec­ond half. He could now miss the Christ­mas cla­sico in three weeks’ time.

It was another blow on an af­ter­noon when Barca were re­minded they are a long way from the fin­ish line de­spite their early lead at the top.

Celta had to make a change in­side the first two min­utes when Gus­tavo Cabral was forced off with a shoul­der prob­lem af­ter clash­ing with Suarez, who was pe­nalised. He ar­gued the de­ci­sion and earned him­self a very early book­ing.

Celta took the lead on 20 min­utes when for­mer Liver­pool striker Iago As­pas beat the off­side trap, run­ning on to a Daniel Wass pass.

He crossed for Maxi Gomez and when Marc An­dre ter Ste­gen spread him­self well to save the shot, As­pas was able to fol­low it in to score.
