Maxi Gomez's equaliser secured Celta Vigo a 2-2 draw at Camp Nou, with Barcelona dropping points at home for the first time in a year.



Barcelona dropped points at home in LaLiga for the first time since December 2016 on Saturday, as Celta Vigo left Camp Nou with a battling 2-2 draw thanks to Maxi Gomez's equaliser. Ernesto Valverde's men looked good value for all three points when Luis Suarez put them 2-1 up just after the hour mark, but Gomez struck soon after to ensure Barca drew a second successive league match following the 1-1 stalemate with Valencia last time out. GOALS: 20' GOAL! Barcelona 0-1 Celta (Aspas) 22' GOAL! Barcelona 1-1 Celta (Messi) 62' GOAL! Barcelona 2-1 Celta (Suarez) 70' GOAL! Barcelona 2-2 Celta (Gomez) MATCH EVENTS: 3' The game is back underway and Suarez can feel hard done to there and he will need to watch himself for the rest of the game. 20' GOAL! Barcelona 0-1 Celta (Aspas) Wass puts Aspas through on goal, who crosses across the face of goal to Gomez.  Ter Stegen makes a brilliant point blank save, only for Aspas to tap in the loose ball. 22' GOAL! Barcelona 1-1 Celta (Messi) That didn't take long! Suarez and Paulinho play a neat 1-2 just outside the area. The ball fortuitously falls to an unmarked Messi, who has no problems sweeping the ball home. 36' SAVE! Paulinho's header from Rakitc's cross from the right is saved well by Blanco but the ball was straight at him and he would have been disappointed if he hasn't saved that. 45' WHAT A MISS! With the goal gaping Wass' sends his right-footed volley from Sisto's cross high into the stands! Celta should have been ahead! 48' WHAT A MISS! Paulinho really should have given Barcelona the lead! He is played in by Messi but Blanco comes out to smother the ball and forces the forward wide who shoots into the side netting with the goal gaping. 62' GOAL! Barcelona 2-1 Celta (Suarez)   Luis Suarez finally gets his goal as Sisto plays Alba on side on the left, who squares the ball to Suarez - allowing the Uruguyan to slot home. 70' GOAL! Barcelona 2-2 Celta (Gomez)  Celta execute the break brilliant again! Aspas races clear on the right, as Umtiti looks to have done his hamstring. The Celta forward cuts back the ball from the byline to Maxi Gomes, who makes no mistake from six yards out. 88' End to end stuff now at the Nou Camp as Messi somehow misses the chance to give Barca the lead before Ter Stegen does brilliantly well to save Sisto's fierce shot with his legs. 90+2' MISS! Alcacer should win the match for Barcelona but his header from six yards out is over the bar! Big miss! Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Pique, Umtiti, Jordi Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Paulinho, Iniesta; Messi, Luis Suarez.
