La Liga| Barca disappointed after dropped points at home; draw 1-1 with Sevilla

It was an exciting start to the game as both the sides scored within the first 10 mins

Barcelona dropped their first points in the La Liga this season, as they played out a hard fought 1-1 draw against Sevilla FC at Camp Nou on Sunday.

It was an exciting start to the game as both the sides scored within the first 10 mins, with Luuk de Jong striking for Sevilla in the eight minute ahead of Philipe Coutinho, who scored an equaliser just two minutes later for Barcelona.

After the two early goals, there wasn’t much fireworks in the game as both the teams looked tired going into the second half. Barcelona played their second half rather disappointingly, as they did not show a lot of creativity, especially in the final third with a few ugly passing mistakes in the midfield, leading to Sevilla counter attacks. Even in the first half, Antoine Griezmann missed out on a good chance to give Barca a lead before half-time.

As the match went into the final 10 minutes, a draw was pretty much on the cards at Camp Nou, which eventually was the result at the end.

"We knew this would be a really difficult game and so it proved, Sevilla are an excellent team and they played very well, they flooded the midfield and we struggled to cope with that but at least we earned a point," Coutinho said in the post match interview.
