Barcelona striker Luis Suarez says the shock LaLiga defeat to Deportivo La Coruna can not be blamed on the club's exploits against Paris Saint-Germain earlier this week.

But Deportivo looked prepared for the challenge they knew would be meeting them at the Riazor, with midfielders Celso Borges and Bergantinos set up to prevent their counterparts from building in the final third.

However, barely 60 seconds after the restart and Barca were back on level terms, Luis Suarez firing home on the rebound after Lux could only parry Denis Suarez's delivery to the feet of the Uruguayan striker.

Luis Enrique has claimed that Barcelona's 6-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday was partly to blame for their 2-1 defeat at Deportivo La Coruna. "It's better to arrive at a game feeling euphoric than pessimistic, we were focused, but we still lost".

Barca's hopes of retaining their LaLiga title suffered a massive blow on Sunday as they fell to a shock 2-1 defeat at the Riazor a few hours before title rivals Real Madrid recorded a late victory of the same scoreline at home to Real Betis.

Ten of the Barca squad that played in that energy-sapping victory also had minutes against Depor on Sunday, but Pique said fatigue can not be used as reason for the reverse.

Bouye, who emerged as a surprise star for the Texans last season and hit free agency as arguably the top defensive back available. Campbell is expected to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars , while Jefferson is expected to sign with the Baltimore Ravens .

Real Madrid now have 62 points, two ahead of Barcelona despite having a game at hand.

The Spain worldwide said: "What happened was what we didn't want to happen, which was to lose". We want it all.

"Only those who went through what we went through this week can understand what it meant", Luis Enrique said.

Barcelona coach Enrique echoed the thoughts of his centre-back.

"Us professionals know that nobody gives us anything and how hard it is to get the points". The teams at the bottom are more risky as the weeks go by. "We have to accept it and understand that there are still a lot of rounds left in the league".
