Barcelona missed a huge opportunity to make a statement in the La Liga title race thanks to a 1-1 draw with relegation candidates Cádiz at Camp Nou. Barça played well throughout the game and created enough chances to win easily but only found the back of the net once and conceded a bad goal thanks to a stupid penalty that Clément Lenglet forgave on death

Cádiz came out in a 4-5-1 formation and parked the bus from the first second so Barça knew they had to be patient, creative and sharp to break that kind of defense as they weren’t any of these Things from the beginning, with misplaced passes, players who didn’t run enough behind them, and lack of conviction in the last ball

But as time went on, the Blaugrana improved and looked more dangerous and the right-wing quartet of Sergiño Dest, Ousmane Dembélé, Frenkie De Jong and Lionel Messi caused real problems and the chances finally came the Blaugrana earned a penalty when Pedri was attacked in the box and Messi scored with ease to give the home team the lead

Barça kept attacking after the first goal and should have added two more through De Jong and Pedri but the goals were canceled for offside, including a bizarre moment when Antoine Griezmann stood in the way of a De Jong shot on his way to the back Part of the network, which Dest sidelined when he assisted Pedri

Cádiz had a chance straight after conceding but Ruben Sobrino missed a tap-in in front of goal Barça dominated at half time and looked good for the last 20 minutes of half In the second half they wanted to maintain this momentum and extend the lead

Cádiz didn’t change their plan for the second half and continued to defend hoping to keep Barça off goal and perhaps get a chance to level late Barça played better and created even more opportunities, with three big ones from Messi, Dembélé and Griezmann somehow not achieved

Substitute Riqui Puig almost scored a great goal five minutes from time, but Barça somehow failed to extend their lead and eventually paid it: Lenglet took a stupid penalty kicking Ruben Sobrino’s leg into the box and Álex Fernández stepped forward with confidence and buried the penalty for 1: 1

Barça had a five-minute break to find the winner but Cádiz defended for their lives and celebrated what felt like a win to them when the final whistle sounded Somehow Barça didn’t win despite having played many throughout the game had clear chances They didn’t deserve to lose points, but they couldn’t take their chances and Lenglet made another bad mistake

The unbeaten run is now extended to 13 games but that should have been eight straight wins to really put pressure on Atlético They couldn’t and it doesn’t look like Barça will be for the title this season fight
