Barcelona missed a wonderful chance to put pressure on table-leaders Real Madrid as they fell 1-0 to Real Valladolid on Saturday afternoon. It was the fifth time the Catalans have dropped points in 2014.
After an early goal from Fausto Rossi the Catalans were fighting from behind. They were never able to mount a comeback and in the end they paid the price.

In this article we will take a look at six things we learned from the disappointing performance. It's time for a wake-up call.
