Barcelona is now down after a goal from Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo managed to score the opening goal after Barcelona made a costly error, thanks to Strand Larssen.

In the sixth round of the La Liga competition, FC Barcelona is up against Celta Vigo, but Barca can't seem to find the right path to victory as they are currently losing to Celta Vigo 1-0, with a goal made by the Norwegian Strand Larssen and a little help from de la Torre.

In the first half, Barcelona was unable to do any damage on the goal of Celta Vigo. Barcelona is currently in third place in the standings with 13 points, close behind Real Madrid (15 points) and Girona (16 points), which is currently leading the Spanish championship after their spectacular 5-2 victory over Mallorca early in the morning.

In its final 18 of 21 games played at home during the 2017–18 La Liga season, Barcelona had a stellar record for clean sheets (17 wins, three ties, and one defeat). The top five clubs in Europe's leagues played six more games than any other team (Manchester United went 12 games without scoring in 22 home matches).

With only six victories out of 20 games played against FC Barcelona in La Liga tournaments during the previous ten years—four ties and ten losses—Celta Vigo can also break the curse. Real Madrid is the only other Spanish team with more victories than the Blaugranas, with seven wins, three ties, and ten losses.

Celta Vigo needs to defeat FC Barcelona today in order to move up in the standings, pass Atletico Madrid and Osasuna, displace Barcelona, and end their unbeaten streak. They also need a win to move up to seventh place in La Liga.

However, even if they lose to Celta Vigo today, Barcelona will have an easy schedule ahead of them and will likely resume their winning streak as they play Mallorca (who lost 5-2 to Girona) on Tuesday, Sevilla (who tied 0-0 with Osasuna today) on Friday, and Granada, who is currently in the 18th position of the standings, on October 8.
