Ernesto Valverde perplexed by Barcelona's defeat at Leganes

Last teams standing How Bayern Juventus & Liverpool kept their 100% records where Barcelona and Chelsea failed

Real Madrid failed to capitalise on Barca's shock defeat after being humbled by Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Bottom club, Leganes stunned Barcelona with a 2-1 win in the Spanish league yesterday, handing the defending champions their second straight setback, AP reports.

Barca's comfortable hold on the game dramatically fell apart shortly after the interval when Nabil El Zhar headed home a looping cross in the 52nd minute and 20-year-old Oscar Rodriguez turned in a second goal barely 60 seconds later to the joy of the 12,000 fans crammed into the Butarque stadium.

Barca pushed for an equaliser but despite dominating the possession, Ernesto Valverde's charges struggled to carve out chances in the final third.

Leganes' victor came thanks to a blunder by veteran central defender, Gerard Pique, who misplayed a shot while trying to clear the ball from inside the area.

The visitors threatened for the first time on six minutes when Ousmane Dembele controlled a crossfield pass from Lionel Messi on the left and cut inside before hitting the side-netting from 18 yards out.

The story points out that Democrats were on the conference call with Kavanaugh when this came up but didn't ask any questions. As in the allegations by his two previous accusers, the latest incidents are alleged to have occurred decades ago.

"The worrying thing is conceding so many goals". Sometimes it's hard to explain the things that happen in a game.

Gerard Pique faced criticism against Leganes after gifting the hosts their second goal, but Busquets is reluctant to single out individuals during a collective dip in form.

Mauricio Pellegrino's troops had finished the half strongly and they came flying out of the blocks after the restart to score twice in the space of a minute.

Cuellar, whose late double save denied Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic in the closing minutes to seal his first career triumph over Barca, said plenty of people had got in touch to praise him after the match.

He added: "We're a team".

Lionel Messi nearly doubled the lead minutes later, but the Argentine saw his curling effort crash against the crossbar with the goalkeeper well beaten.
