Liverpool ready to shatter club record to sign wantaway Barcelona attacker

The loss ended an unbeaten run of 42 consecutive home games for Barcelona in the league dating back to a 2-1 defeat to Alaves on September 10, 2016.

Dembele has been left out of the squad for tomorrow's game with Betis, although Barca manager Ernesto Valverde says that it isn't a punishment.

In his first match back from injury, MESSI was at it agaun scoring for fun.

The Spanish press weren't entirely sympathetic in the aftermath, with Mundo Deportivo branding the result a "lesson" for Barcelona.

Barca stay top of the table despite the defeat but their lead is down to one point, with Atletico Madrid now breathing down their necks in second, while Espanyol will have a chance to move level on points with the Catalans when they visit Sevilla later on Sunday.

Alaves beat Huesca 2-1 earlier on Sunday, while Sevilla won by the same scoreline at home to Espanyol, Wissam Ben Yedder prodding in an 89th-minute victor. "If I was in a position where this game was going to take the record off Peter Shilton, I would never have played in the game", he said.




"We will nearly never be the team that concedes the fewest goals because of our attacking philosophy, but we know we have to improve".

France coach Didier Deschamps warned Dembele, who is in the World Cup winners' squad for internationals against Netherlands and Uruguay, he needs to be more professional, while Barcelona teammate Gerard Pique said the squad is "all here to help him."

Arturo Vidal gave Barca hope of a grandstand finish 11 minutes from time but Sergio Canales slid home a Betis fourth with seven minutes remaining, shortly after Ivan Rakitic was sent-off, and not even a second from Messi in stoppage time could save the hosts. Messi brought Barcelona a goal back from the penalty spot past the hour mark, but Giovani Lo Celso found space in the box just three minutes later and powered it home past Marc-Andre ter Stegen who got a touch. His cute cut-back picked out veteran winger Joaquin, who stabbed in Betis' second. Betis, meanwhile, can toast a momentous win that lifts them up to 12th.

The former Spain defender was turned inside out by Betis' rampant attackers in a hapless first-half display and looked like a shadow of his former self alongside Lenglet at the heart of the Barca backline.

Lionel Messi has ended up on the losing side after bagging a brace for the first time in his stunning Barcelona career.
