Ronald Koeman dropped his first points as Barcelona coach as Sevilla held his team 1-1 at the Nou Camp.
Philippe Coutinho equalised Luuk de Jong's opener in an explosive opening to the game. But Barcelona couldn't finish off their impressive opponents and the point-a-piece left Madrid three points clear at the top.
'I want to achieve big things at this club,' said Coutinho, who has now marked his good start to the season with a goal.

Sevilla had taken the lead on seven minutes when Luuk de Jong lashed a loose ball past Neto after Suso's hanging cross had only been half-cleared.
Coutinho equalised for Barcelona on 10 minutes. Lionel Messi's long ball over the top for Jordi Alba was cut out by Jesus Navas but his clearance ran to the Brazilian who swept it past Bono.
Sevilla were bright after the restart and almost retook the lead on the hour when substitute Youseff En-Nesyri's cross-shot was diverted on to the frame of the goal by Ronald Araujo.
Ivan Rakitic, playing back at the Camp Nou after leaving Barcelona this summer, sent a curling shot just over.
