The Blaugrana could not return home with the three points as they were held to a 1-1 draw at San Mames, Athletic Bilbao thanks to a wonderful first official goal from Depay to cancel out Iñigo Martinez’s header.
Truly, the Camp Nou side were below average for much of the evening, with Iñaki Williams and his teammates causing them all sorts of problems.
However, Ronald Koeman‘s boys still managed to grab a point in what was a tiring evening.
Barca veteran defender, Gerard Pique has also suffered another injury setback, this time with a calf problem, while Eric Garcia was sent off late on.
Memphis Depay also suffered a minor injury, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Although, no injury has been officially confirmed, yet Memphis Depay was seen holding his right leg while celebrating his goal, and the Dutchman continued to reach for it in subsequent moments of the game.
That will Ronald Koeman concerned ahead of their clash with Getafe next weekend, but hopefully the Dutch international can knock it off, and maybe it was only a minor one after a challenge during the game rather than anything untoward.
