Barcelona are suffering from their worst time this year. The team are not playing at the level everyone expects them to and this has troubled the fans. The team played Celta Vigo last Sunday night at Camp Nou. The game was a tough one for the Blaugranas with Celta being such a bogey side. The first half and the second one were 2 different stories. Things looked far from comfortable in the second half for Barcelona. Had it not been for Marc Andre Ter Stegen’s heroic performance yet again, Barcelona would have surely have dropped points.
This performance was followed up by a 3-3 draw against Inter Milan which has made life difficult for them. They are on the verge of playing Europa League football once again this season. It feels so harsh given the squad they have got this season. Lewandowski has been nothing but sensational for them. But the Polish have not had much support which has made the team over-dependent on him. He has fired in 14 goals already this season. But Xavi is frustrated with the results and the performances the team is putting in despite being second in La Liga.
This draw was followed up by a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid in the Clasico. The performance drew criticism as the team did not know what to do. Real Madrid were simply much better and much more clinical than them. The month of October has been really poor for the Blaugranas as they have lost out on all the big games. When it mattered, the team failed to step up and thus the consequences are there. Sergio Busquets and Gerard Pique are not having the best of times and this indicates their time in Barcelona is very well over.
Barcelona still have hope to get UCL Qualification
Poor results one after the other for Barcelona, they really are suffering with his squad. But the squad has still not given up. They hope that Plzen can upset Inter at home and Barcelona can get the better of Bayern Munich. Of course, anything is possible but this might just be too much, even for someone like the Catalan giants. Xavi and the team are still hopeful but things look far from good.
The team has got an injury boost this week as Jules Kounde is now 100% fit. Hector Bellerin and Memphis Depay are Expected to follow up and return on Barcelona’s trip to Villareal. As for Andreas Christensen, he will be back for the big clash against Bayern Munich. Barcelona have really missed him and his intelligence in defence as they gave up a crucial lead against Inter Milan.
