Luis Enrique’s team go 2-0 up through Messi and Ivan Rakitic – but then blow their lead and Deportivo claim their second successive 2-2 draw at Camp Nou.
Here are the talking points from the game.
1) Defense needs immediate improvement
Barca look to be losing their winning momentum as they have now given up their lead in all three of their last matches, drawing all of them. Enrique’s substitution of bringing in Jeremy Mathieu in place of Jordi Alba was welcomed by a goal as Lucas Perez scored the goal that brought back life in La Coruna’s fans. It was carelessness in defence again as Busquets gave the ball away for Deportivo’s equaliser.
