FC Barcelona has suffered its second defeat in four days in the Spanish league.

After the lost Clásico against Real Madrid (1-2) Rayo Vallecano was too strong 1-0 on Wednesday.

Memphis Depay became the schlemiel by missing a penalty in the second half.

Memphis was allowed to build from 11 meters in the 72nd minute after being kicked on his heels in the penalty area.

His mediocre effort was cleverly tapped out of the corner by Macedonian keeper Stole Dimitrievski.

As a result, Falcao, who had opened the score after half an hour, became the match winner on behalf of the home team.

Due to the sixth loss of points in ten games, the pressure on Ronald Koeman will increase further.

The coach was attacked by angry supporters after the game against Real Madrid on Sunday when he drove away from the Camp Nou with his car.

FC Barcelona had to compete against Rayo Vallecano without Frenkie de Jong.

The midfielder is struggling with a hamstring injury and is therefore not available for the time being.

Luuk de Jong was allowed to fill in just before time in the Estadio de Vallecas.

With only fifteen points from ten matches, FC Barcelona is in the middle of La Liga.

If Real Madrid beat Osasuna at home on Wednesday evening, the difference between the two top clubs is already eight points.

Striker Falcao scored the winning goal for Vallecano.
