  • Luis Suarez scored twice against Celta Vigo but Barcelona could only draw
  • The draw saw Barcelona hand the advantage to Real Madrid in the title race 
  • Suarez insists it is up to boss Quique Setien as to why they are dropping points 
  • Real Madrid will go two points clear at the top if they beat Espanyol on Sunday 

Barcelona forward Luis Suarez appeared to take a dig at boss Quique Setien after they suffered a huge blow to their LaLiga title hopes with a 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo.

The Uruguayan scored once in each half to give the visitors the lead on two separate occasions, but equalisers from Fyodor Smolov and Iago Aspas meant Barcelona had to settle for a point at Balaidos.

The Catalan giants went back to the top of the league but know that if Real Madrid beat bottom club Espanyol on Sunday evening they will trail their arch rivals by two points with just six games remaining.

The Uruguayan scored twice but Barcelona were pegged back and had to settle for a point

But when asked why Barcelona had failed to win a second consecutive game on the road, Suarez said: ‘I think that’s why coaches are there, to analyse those situations.

‘We’re there to do our best on the pitch.

‘Away from home, we’re dropping important points that we didn’t usually drop in other seasons.’ 

Suarez was not able to completed his hat-trick after being replaced by Antoine Griezmann seven minutes before Aspas’ delightful equalising free-kick two minutes from time.

But despite acknowledging that there were still stern tests in store for both his side and Madrid, the Uruguayan admitted the negative feeling had permeated through the group. 

‘The feelings are negative, we have dropped two points in the fight for LaLiga.

‘It had been in our hands and now we have to wait for Real Madrid to drop points. The feeling we have is of frustration at having dropped two points.

‘We have to correct our mistakes to improve.’
