Barcelona Live users annoyed with another unnecessary draw: 'This one is on Valverde', 'Suarez's situation not funny anymore'
- Our users are highly critical of the team's performance at the San Mames.
- They believe that both the line-up and the subs were wrong.
- Some players are criticised, especially Suarez, Coutinho and Vidal.
- Finally, our users are worried because Real Madrid won their respective game.
Barcelona drew Athletic Bilbao 0-0 at San Mames in the 23rd round of La Liga. The Catalans failed to create any danger in front of Iago Herrerin's goal except for Lionel Messi's shot that was denied by the bar in the first half. On the other end, Marc-Andre ter Stegen had to save his team twice after Basque players' shots to give his side a chance to win the match. The team looked tired and sluggish with Messi not being 100% ready, Dembele returning from an injury and Suarez, Vidal and Coutinho simply not having their best day.
Thus, Barcelona go six points clear at the top of the table with Real Madrid in the second place. Los Blancos have beaten their neighbours Atletico on the 23rd Matchday 3-1 getting ahead of Diego Simeone's side.
