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