Celta Vigo moved to within three points of Barcelona in La Liga with a stunning win at the Nou Camp.
Is there a crisis at the Nou Camp? Some will certainly feel that way this evening after Barcelona fell to a second consecutive La Liga defeat, with a second half goal from Joaquin Larrivey enough to secure a stunning victory for Celta Vigo in Catalonia.
From the first whistle, Barcelona never really seemed to be at the races against a Celta side in good form and extremely well organised, with the lack of both Xavi and Andres Iniesta in the Barcelona starting line-up clear as they struggled to pick their way through a disciplined Celta defence.
Half chances came and went for Messi, Suarez and Neymar as the game drifted towards half time, but there was a clear lack of understanding between the trio and Enrique clearly has plenty of work to do on the training ground if he is to make this triumvirate a success.
Celta had been a sporadic threat on the counter attack in the first half but burst into life at the start of the second as they took the lead through in form striker Joaquin Larrivey, who latched onto a stunning backheel from the impressive Nolito and calmly stroked past Claudio Bravo.
Messi blazed a nicely positioned free kick high over the bar and Celta ‘keeper Sergio Alvarez repelled a couple of half chances as Barcelona tried to get back into the match, but the visitors held out for a deserved victory that keeps things very interesting at the top of La Liga in what has turned out to be a stunning season to date.
