It was an upsetting day for fans at Camp Nou as Barcelona fell to a 0-1 defeat against Rayo Vallecano in their La Liga fixture on Sunday, April 24.

An early goal by Rayo Vallecano's Alvaro Garcia saw the home side start the game on the wrong footing, with their poor display throughout rightfully angering their fans.

Barca fans were understandably upset with a couple of Blaugrana stars, namely Sergino Dest and Marc Andre ter Stegen. The right-back seemed to have fallen asleep and was unable to mark Garcia's inside run to pick up a pass from Palazon, which eventually culminated in the winning goal.

Goalkeeper Ter Stegen seemed to have been caught day-dreaming when a back pass went through his legs. His error nearly handed Vallecano another goal in the 73rd minute.

Barcelona fans took to Twitter to vent their frustrations about the pair, and here is a selection of their tweets:

@TheEuropeanLad 😭 “barca is better without Messi”
Dest & MAtS were definitely a bit sus leading up to the goal, btw. The former, especially. Poor marking & closing down.
You’ll see the light on Dest soon enough. He’s not a reliable right back at all. Barça will end up buying another starter worthy right back, Dest will either become a backup or he’s getting sold. Mark this tweet.
Xavi must’ve been really angry to replace Dest with a CB. 😭😭😭
Sergino Dest and Xavi are giving me Tuchel and Pulisic vibes. #USMNT
@Frenkie_Chief Dest is not good enough he can't cross or make attacking runs he can't go into midfield and play like Dani alves And his defending is average man he just not good enough
ter Stegen nutmegged himself wallahi tallahi billahi I need to smoke a big fat doobie to calm down
New skill move unlocked for Ter Stegen, introducing the self nutmeg🔥🔥🔥 https://t.co/NZYDjGZtSg
Ter Stegen mishandling the ball was the most exciting thing Barca did all game.
first shot on target. near post. first goal. Marc Andre Ter Stegen. again.
Good strike but Ter stegen near post is so inevitable it’s embarrassing
Ter Stegen almost gave himself a nutmeg owngoal😭

Barcelona's 1-0 loss is their sixth this season, and it precariously keeps them in second position in the league table. Another falter from the side could see Sevilla and Atletico Madrid overtake them and push them down into fourth place.


Ousmane Dembele could remain at Barcelona next season: Reports

According to a report by Forbes, Barcelona are intent on extending Ousmane Dembele's contract in the coming weeks. The former Dortmund star has reignited his career under Xavi Hernandez and could potentially commit to the Catalan outfit for a longer stay.

Dembele, who signed from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of €105 million in 2017, looked likely to depart the club in the summer following an impasse concerning an extension. While the relationship between the Frenchman and club president Joan Laporta soured, Xavi has brought the winger back into the fold. He could now reportedly extend the deal.

Dembele has been one of the best players at Camp Nou this season, with the 24-year-old winger hitting 11 assists this campaign. This comes after he missed most of the first half of the season due to injuries and his contractual difficulties at the club.

However, the Frenchman has started giving signs that he intends to remain at the club, with his agent reportedly deep in talks with the Catalan club. Dembele has re-added that he plays for Barcelona on his Instagram page, while a member of his entourage mentioned that he would remain at the club on TikTok.

The Catalan giants will be pleased to be keeping the winger for more years, especially in light of his recent performances. The winger has nine assists and a goal in his last ten league appearances. Despite missing the first half of the season through injury, Dembele is the club's highest provider of assists with 11 assists in total.

The Catalans will look for more such performances from Dembele as they hope to rebuild and achieve success again.
