yesalvo monumental surprise, Barcelona will add a year in white. The azulgrana team received an important review yesterday by Eintracht in their own field, this time invaded by rival fans. Nobody expected something like this. Barcelona was in its best moment of the season with a streak of 15 games without losing. They could be eliminated, but not in the way that happened.
The reasons for not get any title They come from far away. In August it was already possible to foresee that the season was going to be tough and the chances of not winning any title were very high. Barcelona had lost Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann with the number of goals that that entails. They had not been able to go to the market with full guarantees because there was not a euro in the box. All those who arrived were at zero cost.
Also, the relationships between Laporta and Koeman they were lousy The president already tried to brush off the Dutch at the end of last season, but he didn’t do it because he didn’t find a replacement he liked. But that couldn’t be fixed, it was a matter of time and that lack of confidence in the technician was noticeable in the team. And if that was not enough, the injuries were primed with the template. In this context, Barcelona left the Champions League on the road beaten by Bayern and Benfica.
Xavi took command of the team. Laporta gave him four signings, but the Super Cup and the Copa del Rey came too soon. The new coach had just landed and met Madrid in the semifinal of the Super Cup. It is true that they competed against the whites, but not enough to win. Then came the game in San Mams in the Cup. Laporta did not allow Dembl I would play that match as a measure of strength so that he would accept the renewal or leave in the winter market. The team lost and nobody knows what would have happened with Dembl on the field. Here Xavi gave way too much.
from here the team’s improvement was palpable. The good results arrived and some games were memorable. Especially the 0-4 at the Bernabu. The sensations transmitted by the team were very good and the winning streak invited optimism for the League, despite the distance, and the Europa League.
Everything fell apart yesterday. Once again hit by injuries, Xavi could not count on Piqu, Frenkie de Jong was ill and Pedri was injured before the break, they took their toll. Barcelona played the worst game in a long time and lost the fourth title of the season.
