Barcelona dealt blow as key defender suspended for Elche clash


Barcelona dealt blow as key defender suspended for Elche clash

Barcelona have been dealt a blow ahead of their upcoming meeting with Elche next weekend.

Barcelona held by Osasuna

Gameweek 17 of the La Liga season would see FC Barcelona take on Osasuna.

Xavi Hernandez’s side headed into the game looking to bounce back from a poor run of form which had, most recently, seen them lose to Bayern Munich and Real Betis.

And, things got off to a bright start for La Blaugrana when Nico fired them into the lead after just 12 minutes.

Osasuna hit back almost instantly, but another teenager – Abdessamad Ezzalzouli – netted his first professional goal to once again hand Barca the lead early in the second 45.

But just when it looked as though the visitors were set to head home with all three points, Chimy Avila netted an 86th-minute equaliser to snatch a point for Osasuna:

Barcelona’s woes on the day did not end with the loss of two crucial points, however.

The Spanish powerhouse were also dealt a blow on the personnel front when Gerard Pique was booked in the dying moments of the match.

That booking was Pique’s 5th of the La Liga campaign and now means he is suspended vs Elche next weekend.
