Antoine Griezmann rescues a 1-1 draw for Barcelona against ten-man Deportivo Alaves as Ronald Koeman’s side extend their winless run to four games.
(The African Stand) — Barcelona‘s struggles this season continued after they were held to a 1-1 draw by ten-man Alaves – extending their winless run to four games.
With the Catalan side failing to win since the start of October, they were in desperate need of a confidence-boosting victory and were given hope after the interval when Jota was given his marching orders for a second yellow – a high boot on Gerard Pique.
Antoine Griezmann capitalised almost immediately as his deft chip over the goalkeeper brought the scores level.
