    Present boss Koeman’s state of mind after having his future plunged into a cloud of speculation will not have actually been enhanced by Alaves’ opener.

    Goalkeeper Neto failed to manage a needless back pass after 31 minutes and Rioja dispossessed him prior to rolling the ball into the empty net.

    Messi was rejected either side of half- time by Alaves goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco and Ansu Fati fired broad.

    Alaves’ rearguard action suffered a blow after 62 minutes when former Brentford and Birmingham midfielder Jota got a second yellow card.

    And the visitors levelled a minute later on when Griezmann raised the ball over Pacheco.

    Pacheco rejected Messi and Fati either side of Griezmann having actually an effort prohibited.

    Barca were once again rejected a winner late on when Messi’s strike was chalked off for offside and Gerard Pique fired broad in stoppage time.
