We witnessed the biggest shock in Europe last night as Barcelona were beaten by Alaves 2-1 at The Nou Camp. With Champions League action against Celtic around the corner in midweek, Barcelona boss Luis Enrique took the opportunity to rest key players such as Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez but that idea spectacularly backfired as promoted side Alaves came away with a memorable win.
Deyverson stunned the Catalan giants as he put Alaves ahead just before the break while Jeremy Mathieu restored parity soon after the restart and you would have thought that Barcelona would go on to win the game. But there was one last sting in the tale as Ibai Gomez scored the winner – beating debutant keeper Jasper Cillessen from just inside the area.
After Alaves went ahead for the second time the calvary came on but even Lionel Messi couldn’t overturn the deficit and Barcelona were dealt their first defeat of the season. Celtic fans will be looking at this result with some interest
