Barca could have gone top of the Primera Liga standings if results had gone their way on Saturday, but their defeat at the Vicente Calderon and Real Madrid´s 3-2 victory at Recreative Huelva means there is now five points between the top two.
"They had a good day and us a bad one," said Puyol. "We had the game under control and in a five-minute spell it has escaped us. Their first goal was bad luck, the second has caused us a lot of damage and with the penalty they have broken the game."
