Neymar sees red as Barcelona suffer shock defeat at Malaga
A little unexpected victory in the last round in Gijon gave Malaga.
The expectations did not however match reality.
Luis Enrique's side are now sat three points behind Madrid in La Liga table, with Zinedine Zidane's side drawing 1-1 against cross-city rivals Atletico earlier in the day.
- After Sandro's goal, Barcelona have surrendered three goals from their former players (Munir 2 Sandro 1) in LaLiga this season.
The other bone of contention was Neymar's sending off for two bookable offences.
Substitute Jonathan Rodriguez tallied Malaga's second goal of the match during stoppage time while Barcelona was still searching for an equalizer. "It was tough, but we got the draw thanks to a great pass by Angelito", Griezmann said.
"The result was unfair", he said.
"We'll try to win 11, 12, 13 games straight but it's very hard".
"We were in control and then an error of our own cost us, we generated lots of chances, but did not have any luck".
"We could have scored with the shot from [Luis] Suarez in the first half, the penalty not given on Sergi Robero, another chance in the second half also for Sergi Roberto".

Perhaps what is more intriguing is that Gil reports "Neymar was isolated this time from the rest of players, very affected by his expulsion, in a painful return journey". It seemed to be a sort of hangover game for Barca as it came on the heels of their epic Champions League round of 16 comeback against PSG that saw them turn a 4-0 first-leg deficit into a 6-5 aggregate win.
The Brazilian first got into the referee's book in the 27th minute. The home side took the counter attacks with full force and frustrated their opponents.
Neymar nearly evened the score at the hour mark with his shot hitting the bar before bouncing wide for a goalkick only for his frustrations to be compounded shortly after when he was given his second yellow card of the evening after a reckless challenge on Llorente.
Barcelona boss Enrique was left feeling that Neymar and the team were unfairly punished. We'll have to wait and see what the authorities have to say.
"And then tying your laces gets you a yellow. It's curious, but we're used to it".
The problems did not end there for Barcelona. Sarcasm galore (watch the footage above).
But Neymar sarcastically applauded the fourth official as he walked off the pitch meaning he has been handed an extra game suspension.
What started off as a seemingly silly moment when Neymar earned a yellow card for "delaying the game" while tying his boots turned serious later on when he was slapped with a second yellow card and was sent off.
That could add up to three games to Neymar's ban, though even one additional game would be enough for him to miss the April 23 clash at the Santiago Bernabeu.
