Barca almost lost without Messi

*Goal: Dembele 67′ – Kike 57′.

Due to not having recovered from his ankle injury, Lionel Messi only attended after returning from Argentina.

On an unlucky day, it was Braithwaite who caused Barca to miss the chance to win.

Braithwaite held his face in regret after missing the penalty kick.

The home team’s miss seemed to give Eibar more morale.

The ungodliness haunted even Griezmann.

Witnessing the home team’s deadlock, Koeman brought on Ousmane Dembele to replace Sergino Dest at the end of the break.

Kike punctured Ter Stegen’s goal, giving Eibar a sudden lead.

Having wasted many opportunities, Barca paid the price for mistakes in defense.

10 minutes after the goal, Barca equalized.

A poor block by Dmitrovic gave Braithwaite a chance, but the striker missed it.

On the evening of January 3, Barca was a guest at Huesca Stadium.
