Sevilla beat Atletico; Barca lose after Messi penalty miss

Sevilla beat Atletico; Barca lose after Messi penalty miss”

The last game they had lost in any competition was in the Spanish Super Cup to Real Madrid, August 16.

The second leg of the encounter takes place at the Nou Camp on Thursday, 25 January, and the winners on aggregate will advance to the semis.

Barcelona can surely put things right in the next week when they host Espanyol at the Camp Nou on the 26th of this month.

"It can't affect us, it's just another game".

Valverde said, "Our goalkeeper did not have to intervene in the game". "We tried to keep the run going as long as possible, but it wasn't to be tonight".

Barcelona hit their stride in the coach's new 4-4-2 system but Suarez lagged behind, missing Neymar, who left for Paris St Germain in the middle of previous year.

As well as Messi's missed penalty, Denis Suarez sent a great chance wide in the first half, but in general, Barca struggled to break down a well-organised Espanyol side. The visiting side went ahead through Ruben Sobrino in the 66th minute but Portugal global Goncalo Guedes levelled for Valencia in the 73rd.

"I've been at Espanyol since the age of six", he said.

Luis Suarez was left out of the Barca line up, as Lionel Messi led the attack with Denis Suarez and Aleix Vidal.

Madrid were held at home by lower-tier clubs Numancia and Fuenlabrada in previous rounds after first-leg away wins and they failed to respond to Saturday's 1-0 defeat at the hands of Villarreal, with Mateo Kovacic missing a golden first-half chance.
