Quique Setien was at a loss to explain Barcelona’s struggles away from home after watching his team drop points again on Saturday at Balaidos.

Barcelona twice led, thanks to goals from Luis Suarez, but had to settle for a point after Iago Aspas scored a late free-kick to rescue a point for the hosts.

It’s yet another disappointing result away from home, and Setien does not know where it keeps going wrong for his team.

“I don’t know what to tell you,” he said. “I could say a thousand things but I don’t think there’s one thing. We try to defend with the ball. Sometimes you can’t attack because the opponents sit back. Sometimes you rush things. We play teams, like Celta today, with very good players.

“It’s true that we would like to be more solid in many aspects. We’re attacking, we try to win, to play in the opposition’s half, and that’s what can sometimes give the opposition chances, too.

Barcelona are back at home next time out but it’s another difficult game with Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid the visitors to the Camp Nou on Wednesday.
