In a Spanish league match that Lionel Messi missed due to injury, Barcelona was held to a 1-1 draw at home by Eibar on Tuesday.
In the 67th, Barcelona replacement Ousmane Dembele scored to cancel out Kike Garcia’s opener 10 minutes earlier.
After Sevilla climbed to fourth with a 2-0 victory over Villarreal, which dropped to fifth, Ronald Koemans’ side slipped into sixth place.
Due to an unspecified right-ankle problem, Messi was forced to watch the game from the stands. It is not mentioned that it is critical.
Striker Martin Braithwaite of Barcelona missed a penalty kick early on.
With what appeared to be a left knee injury, Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho left the game in the final minutes.
After losing its previous six trips, it was the first point Eibar had taken at Camp Nou.
