Barcelona players confronted Quique Setien over Antoine Griezmann after Celta Vigo draw

Late Aspas free-kick deals Barcelona huge title blow

Real Madrid handed La Liga boost as Barcelona suffer devastating title blow against Celta Vigo

On the other hand, Celta Vigo aim to keep their unbeaten run at the last three rounds, during which they gained 7 points from a draw against Real Valladolid as well as two wins over Deportivo Alaves and Real Sociedad.

Celta may have gone into the game 16th in the table but they represented a clear and present danger to Barca's hopes of retaining their title.

Currently, Barcelona have a goal difference of 39 while Real Madrid sit on 38.

If Real Madrid wins, it will have an important advantage in the championship race, as the Spanish league will conclude in week 38. "But we now have to rely on Madrid to drop points".

China deployed army in 'large numbers' at disputed border
After negotiations which lasted almost three weeks were resolved on May 5th, both sides withdrew their soldiers. India has deployed more than 36,000 troops along a disputed Himalayan border, according to local sources.

But when asked why Barcelona had failed to win a second consecutive game on the road, Suarez said: 'I think that's why coaches are there, to analyse those situations.

Barca were energised by the inclusion of youngsters Ansu Fati and Riqui Puig - just reward for the pair's game-changing efforts against Athletic Club in midweek - and deservedly took the lead 20 minutes in. They took a lot of risks late on and got the goal that earned them a point.

It can be recalled that as Aspas struck the ball with his left foot, Griezmann jumped and turned his back apparently resulting to the ball subsequently finding a way into the bottom corner of the net.

Suarez put Barcelona ahead again on 67 minutes after another assist by Messi but Aspas pulled off the late equaliser with his free kick that left Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen flat-footed.

All is not lost, of course.
