Barcelona has now fallen far behind Real Madrid in the Primera Division after their 5th tie in the last 8 games. The latest draw came against Athletic Bilbao away from home. Even though Barcelona found themselves ahead in the score in the 35th minute of the game, they could not keep the lead and surrendered the equalizer at the 78th minute. The youngster Banjo scored the Catalan’s goal from a pass from Deco. Barcelona are responsible for losing the points simply because they sat back and tried to defend their lead in the second half giving Bilbao the chance to push forward and claim a point at San Mames. Barcelona are now 6 points behind Real Madrid which still have a game on hand and can make it 9 points with a win over 3rd place Villarreal.
