Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets admitted his team are making too many individual mistakes after slumping to a shock 2-1 defeat at Cadiz on Saturday.

The Catalan giants were beaten for the fourth time this season and gave away two poor goals to the newly-promoted side.

The winner came from an awful mix up in defense with Jordi Alba, Clement Lenglet and Marc-Andre ter Stegen all involved.

Busquets fronted up for the post-match interview and offered his thoughts on Barca’s loss.

“It is worrying that there are many defeats, but the more we lose, the more we will move away from the top positions. We reacted to conceding an early goal, but when scored a second, it cost us much more.

“When it seemed that we had options to get back into the game we made another mistake and it is much more difficult. Individual errors have cost us a lot of points this season.

“In the Champions League the team seems to play differently. In the last few defeats, it has been errors that have decided the game.”

Barca’s latest defeat leaves the team a massive 12 points behind leaders Atletico Madrid after just 10 games and with their hopes of regaining the title looking a distant dream at the moment.
