Can Atletico Madrid catch Barcelona in La Liga title race?

"But, that is a mistake to look at it that way, we need to always go into the next game trying to be strong".

While Barcelona remain unbeaten in La Liga this season, Eibar have lost only one of their last 12 games in the competition, a 1-0 defeat to Atletico at Ipurua in January.

With the support of the positionally responsible pair of Busquets and Rakitic in midfield, the Barcelona back four are conceding far less frequently, shipping just 0.48 league goals per game compared to last season's 0.97. They played with high intensity right from the first whistle and were on top for the first 15 minutes of the game.

Luis Suarez opened the scoring against the run of play when Lionel Messi played a defense-splitting pass which found the Uruguayan, who then rounded Eibar keeper Marko Dmitrovic to roll the ball into an empty net. Once again, Messi set Suarez up to take the ball around the keeper.

However, the Chilean was sent off midway through the second half, stupidly picking up a second yellow card for kicking the ball away.

The loss was only the second for Eibar in its last 13 matches.

Dow turns 567-point loss into 567-point gain as stocks rally
This makes it the second time the traditional market would be falling within four days by more than 1,000 points. The benchmark 10-year USA note yield traded at 2.85 percent Thursday, continuing its rise to multi-year highs.

Not many teams in the world will cost €300 million to assemble, but that's how much Barcelona have spent on Ousmane Dembele and Coutinho.

The bottom line is that this Barcelona side is also extraordinarily good under Ernesto Valverde.

Atletico Madrid's next game in La Liga is at home against Athletic Bilbao.

That was the 14th time the Argentine had hit the woodwork this term in the Primera Division and his performance deserved a goal.

Despite playing a man down, Eibar still managed to make Barcelona work. Their previous match trip saw the Blaugrana come from two goals down to win 4-2 at Real Sociedad - their first league triumph in the Anoeta in nine years. During that time they have beaten third-place Valencia and embarrassed Sevilla by putting five past them last month.

Barca, meanwhile, play away at Eibar in La Liga on Saturday, leaving them with two days to plan for the game, with one of them taken up traveling to London. This includes today's red card for Orellana. They were still unbeaten and their path to the league title appeared to be a procession.

However, with the gap at the top down to seven points and Barcelona having to contend with Champions League knockout football and a Copa final later in the season, it could be that Los Rojiblancos have half a chance of applying major pressure.
