Missing Neymar: How Barcelona fell to Deportivo 4 days after thrashing PSG

Luis Enrique

Deportivo managed to see out the remainder of the half with a one-goal advantage in tow, but the nature of their opposition-not to mention their recent trend of comebacks-meant there was no room for comfort.

"They know how important he is and in the end he made a great save to get us the three points".

"But we remain calm because we know we can score at any moment".

However, the Catalan giants leveled matters a minute after the break through Luis Suarez powerful close range effort.

Barca opened Sunday's showdown with their usual glut of possession, with Sergi Roberto impressing in a midfield role days after his injury-time strike against PSG pushed Barca through in the Champions League.

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique didn't start Rafinha, Samuel Umtiti and Neymar, who was decisive on Wednesday with two goals and two assists.

Barca's stunning second-leg victory over PSG secured their passage to the last eight of Europe's elite competition, 6-5 on aggregate, but they went down at the Riazor as Alex Bergantinos' header won it for the home side after Luis Suarez had cancelled out Joselu's opener.

"Now we have to think that we still have matches against our rivals for the title to come", said Enrique.

On 40 minutes Deportivo took the lead after a comedy of errors from the Barcelona defence.

However, from the resulting corner Ter Stegen was found wanting as he spilled Javier Mascherano's miscued clearance and Joselu was on hand to smash into an unguarded net.

But despite what Barca's quick restart might have suggested, the goal onslaught the away team desired didn't materialise, and Mel's men were able to gather their thoughts and once again hold their foes at bay.

In the 74th minute Alejandro Arribas saw his header saved by Ter Stegen and Barcelona were forced to concede a corner. When you give them a chance, they don't forgive you.
