Barcelona seems to be having one of their worst runs in La Liga ever. The team has looked lackluster right from the start of the season. They failed to make an impact in the la Liga and also could not play well in the UEFA Champions League. The team tried several permutations and combinations with the players.
The combinations seemed to click for a while before getting nullified eventually. A change of manager was thought to bring about a change in the poor run of the team. Xavi did transform the side to a certain extent. Barca had a brief run where they did not lose a single game.
However, the patch soon faded away, and the Catalans are once again in dire straits. The team lost their recent match against Cadiz in the most shocking manner. If that was not enough, Barcelona lost their following match last night against Rayo Vallecano. This loss was a humiliating addition to the rich history of the Catalan club.
Barca has never lost three games on the trot at Camp Nou. Rayo Vallecano has defeated Barca in both the league games for the first time in their history. Let us learn more about the game in detail below.
Barcelona Succumb To 1-0 Loss
Barcelona shocked the footballing world after they failed to register a victory against Rayo Vallecano.
The players looked demotivated and displayed a flat brand of football. The only goal of the match was scored by Alvaro Garcia in the seventh minute of the match.
Barca did hit the post twice, but that was all they could garner in the match.
Barcelona manager Xavi seemed very angry with the team. He criticized the players and asked them to be more serious.
This loss shut down any hopes of Barca clinching the league title. They are currently placed second jointly with Sevilla.
