Barcelona named a strong starting XI including summer arrival Sergio Aguero.

But despite dominating possession with nearly 70 per cent of the ball, they could only muster one shot on target.

Vallecano took their chance in the 30th minute when Falcao fired home a clever finish.

And Barca’s woes continued as Depay, another summer arrival, missed a second-half penalty to level the scores.

Barcelona have now lost two on the trot following Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid.

And after being beaten 2-0 by Atletico Madrid at the start of October, they have been defeated in three of their last four league matches.


September also saw Barcelona hammered in the Champions League 3-0 by both Bayern Munich and Benfica.

And the pressure is now intensifying on beleaguered boss Koeman.
