Arturo Vidal was very vocal about his disdain for Barcelona’s defending in their 4-3 home defeat to Real Betis on Sunday, claiming the Blaugrana simply “can’t lose like this at home”.

The veteran Chilean came on at half-time at the Camp Nou and gave Barca hope of an improbable comeback with his second goal for the club late on.

Speaking after the match he took aim at the team’s defending. “We started badly and they took advantage of the two chances they had in the first half and like this it’s difficult, we can’t lose like this at home,” said the 31-year-old.

“We had chances to come back but we have to improve other things. Teams can’t come here and bang in four goals against us.”

Ernesto Valverde’s side’s defensive record this season is a real worry. They haven’t kept a clean sheet in La Liga since August and only Levante, Athletic Bilbao, Rayo and Huesca have conceded more.

“We have to work on that, see the mistakes and make sure they don’t happen again,” added Vidal.
