Pique admitted his side have a problem with their porous defence after Real Betis defeat on Sunday, conceding four times at the Nou Camp for the first time in over 15 years. "They won the match in the first half".

Since then, the Catalans have remained impervious to all (winning 53 games and drawing 10) while Betis had lost on their last eight visits.

Barca last endured defeat on their own patch against Alaves in September 2016 but, following 42 games unbeaten, their run was halted by a brilliant, counter-attacking display from Betis. He's had a super start to the season scoring six goals and two assists.

Tijuana's head of migrant services said the group arrived Tuesday and immediately went to a stretch of border fence to celebrate. President Donald Trump has ordered the deployment of over 5,000 military troops to the border to help fend off the migrants .

With the loss, Barcelona holds just a one-point lead over Sevilla, Atletico Madrid, and Alaves at the top of the La Liga table, with Espanyol three points back and Real Madrid still seven points behind.

"When you come here, you always expect to suffer but we knew if we showed character and overcame the stress we could play well and have the ball, and Barca are a team that suffers without the ball and struggles to get it back".

Alaves beat Huesca 2-1 earlier on Sunday, while Sevilla won by the same scoreline at home to Espanyol, Wissam Ben Yedder prodding in an 89th-minute victor.

Yet Betis restored their two-goal cushion through Giovani Lo Celso with the help of an uncharacteristic error from Barca's usually reliable goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who fumbled the shot into the net. His cute cut-back picked out Joaquin, who stabbed in Betis' second. Two substitutes combined for a second, Munir El Haddadi laying on Vidal to make it 3-2 but no sooner had the recovery began again, it was halted.

Rakitic received a second yellow card for a foul on Lo Celso before Canales appeared to put the result beyond doubt, sliding home Junior's cross seven minutes from time, but Messi ensured there was late drama, tucking home Vidal's pass deep into stoppage time.
