Barcelona dropped more points on the road on Saturday as Iago Aspas’ late freekick saw them draw 2-2 with Celta Vigo at Balaidos.
The Blaugrana’s away form has been a problem all season long and it’s one that the players are asking for urgent answers for.
After all, they are in a title race, although it’s no longer in their hands.
“Away from home, we’re dropping important points that we didn’t usually drop in other seasons,” Luis Suarez said in Vigo.
“I think that’s why the coaches are there, to analyse those situations. We’re there to do our best on the pitch.”
This take-the-hint message from Suarez to Quique Setien and his coaching staff is direct and clear.
The Barcelona boss was unable to prevent his side from dropping points at Balaidos, which is a familiar tale of late.
The Catalans have dropped five points in their three away games since the resumption of the season.
They won comfortably at Real Mallorca but draws against Sevilla and Celta have seen them surrender their lead at the top of the table.
Their next trip sees them travel to Villarreal next weekend, with the Yellow Submarine chasing the Champions League places.
Javi Calleja’s side are sixth in the table and have only lost three times at the Estadio de la Ceramica all season.
Real Valladolid and Alaves are Barcelona’s other away fixtures before the end of the campaign.
A step back
Barcelona’s record on the road this season doesn’t make for good reading, especially for a team vying for trophies.
In LaLiga Santander, the Blaugrana have taken just 23 points from a possible 48 away from the Camp Nou.
In their 16 away matches, they’ve won six, drawn five and lost five.
Last season, Barcelona picked up 39 points on the road – more than any other team in LaLiga Santander.
Real Madrid, who travel to Espanyol on Sunday, have won five more points away from home than Barcelona this campaign.
