"But we now have to rely on Madrid to drop points".

In addition, Barca had gone four games without a win at Balaidos, and Lionel Messi hadn't even scored there since 2013.

It could get worse for Barca, too, as they host third-placed Atletico Madrid in the Camp Nou on Tuesday, with Zidane hoping that his bitter city rivals do them a favor in the hunt for what would be just their second La Liga crown in the last seven seasons. "If we want to stay in the title race and have it in our hands we have to win all our games".

Both Barcelona goals came from Suarez, who hadn't scored since recovering from surgery on his right knee in January.

Celta are 16th on 34 points, the draw taking them eight points clear of the relegation zone.

FC Barcelona manager Quique Setien has explained why €120million signing Antoine Griezmann was benched once again, as the club's title hopes were dented.

Messi was at the heart of everything likely forward and it was his early corner that Gerard Pique headed in opposition to the crossbar.

Suarez put Barcelona ahead again on 67 minutes after another assist by Messi but Aspas pulled off the late equaliser with his free kick that left Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen flat-footed.

However, sloppy play in midfield from Ivan Rakitic allowed Iago Aspas to put Okay Yokuslu away and the Turkey global crossed for Fedor Smolov to level matters.

Celta should have won the game in added time when Nolito arrived at the far post with the goal gaping, but instead of tapping into the net his shot went straight at Ter Stegen.

Devastated with how things have been going on in the dressing room, Suarez called for the team to regroup and try to figure out how to win the remaining crucial matches of the season.

"It's a disappointing feeling, we lost two very important points in the fight for the title", Barcelona striker Luis Suarez said.
