Neymar’s woeful first half effort summed up Barcelona’s shock defeat at Valladolid
Barcelona now look like the third best team in La Liga.
This is no slight considering the form shown by Real and Atletico Madrid, but Tata Martino’s side look well off the pace now in La Liga.
Besides their win at Manchester City, 2014 has been pretty poor for Barcelona and today’s defeat was about as bad as they come in the Spanish top flight with Real Valladolid involved in the relegation dog fight.
The Catalan giants have now dropped 13 points in their last nine games and it would be a major surprise if they can turn it round from here.
Real Madrid now look clear favourites for the La Liga title and El Clasico later this month.
Barca’s defeat at Valladolid was very much summed up by Neymar’s woeful effort in the first half – not quite the Brazil hat-trick hero of midweek!
