Celta upset Barca at Camp Nou

News

Despite an embarrassment of South American superstars in their attacking positions in the form of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, Barca were blunt and could not breach a solid Celta defence.

Celta's goal came through a combination of quick thinking and finishing and statuesque defending. A routine long-ball forward was flicked on and after Dani Alves failed to clear properly and Sergio Busquets stood watching, Nolito cleverly backheeled into the path of Joaquin Larrivey to slot home.

The result leaves Barca two points behind Real Madrid at the top of the table after Los Blancos won 4-0 against Granada earlier in the day. Celta Vigo moved up into sixth place.
