Barcelona drop even more points in La Liga, slipping up away to Alavés. Ronald Koeman’s side started the game extremely poorly, and found themselves behind at half-time, following some awful football and a howler from Neto. But when vast changes were made and Alavés were reduced to 10 men, Barça were able to heap pressure on the Basque outfit, but only managed to come out of Mendizorroza with 1 point, rather than 3.
The draw means that Barcelona have now only managed to pick up 2 points from a possible 12 available to them in their past 4 La Liga fixtures, and puts us in a worrying position, with the La Liga title almost out of sight after just our 6th game of the campaign.
Question marks will also be asked of Ronald Koeman regarding his team selection, and it will be interesting to see whether players such as Sergi Roberto and Sergio Busquets are taken out of the team in the coming weeks, to facilitate the introduction of players such as Sergiño Dest, Miralem Pjanić and Pedri.
