Barcelona 1-1 Athletic Bilbao

Real captain Sergio Ramos

La Liga champions Barcelona's domestic struggles continued as they dropped points for the third game in a row, drawing 1-1 at home to Athletic Bilbao on Saturday after Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets had begun the match on the substitutes' bench.

Messi came on in the second half and grabbed the assist for Munir El Haddadi's equaliser at the Camp Nou.

Luis Suarez said after the 1-1 draw: 'Messi is the best in the world but we can not depend on him coming on to provide a solution.

"This is Barca. We have enough players, we don't need to depend on one".

Lionel Messi's importance to Barcelona does not diminish with the passing of the years - they go into Wednesday's Champions League group game with Tottenham relying on him more than ever, Daily Mail reports.

"Many of us are here because of what we did in other teams".

Oil hits four-year high as OPEC, allies maintain supply cut
She says the question of how much Trump's administration can control the Iranian oil market is only one part of the equation. The kingdom does expect to pump more in September and increase again in October, he said, without pledging specific volumes.

We can not afford to concede goals in every game. I know it's a risky decision [leaving Messi out]. With Barca and Real Madrid locked at the top of La Liga with four wins and a draw apiece, a slip up against Leganes could prove pretty costly for Ernesto Valverde, even at this early stage.

"It is important, because if we win we will take a very important step".

Ahead through a Philippe Countinho goal, top of the table Barcelona looked in cruise control against bottom club Leganes who have just one point from their first five matches this season.

Sevilla were relentless throughout the first half and after Franco Vazquez hit the bar, striker Wissam Ben Yedder scored in the 39th minute for his sixth goal in a week to stun Real, who suffered their first loss under manager Julen Lopetegu. Recent results have not been good but it is a long season'.

Speaking after the game, Leganes goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar accused the Barcelona players of "ugly" behaviour and claimed that they acted like bad losers by not congratulating the victors.
