Magic Messi makes Barcelona title odds seem generous

Posted on December 23, 2016 by admin

There is no doubt that FC Barcelona have not been their usual brilliant and ruthless selves this season. With an early La Liga defeat at home to lowly Alaves, followed a month later by a loss against Celta Vigo, and with draws against title rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid, we saw Luis Enrique’s team struggle to stay in touch at the top.

Even though Barca produced a fine display at the weekend to beat local rivals Espanyol, bringing them within three points of the league leaders, we must remember that Real Madrid have a game in hand to play because of their trip to the Club World Cup. So you might think that the odds of Barcelona retaining the Spanish title of 2.75 are about right (Courtesy of CrownBet).

Iniesta on Barcelona bench for Real Madrid in El Clasico

Posted on December 03, 2016 by admin

One of the reasons that many have put forward for the reason why Barcelona have beemn struggling in La Liga this season and head into this El Clasico clash with fierce rivals Real Madrid six points ahead in the Spanish league table is the number of injury problems to key players that Luis Enrique has been forced to deal with.

So the Barca boss will be delighted to be able to welcome Andres Iniesta back into the match day squad, even if the midfield star is not going to be risked from the start after five weeks out of action. Enrique can turn to Iniesta if needed and that could be a massive boost.

More Sociedad strife makes El Clasico MUST WIN for Barcelona

I suppose it was not too much of a surprise to see Luis Enrique and the Barcelona players struggle this weekend, as we were playing away against one of Barca’s bogey teams Real Sociedad. In fact you could say that we were fortunate to get anything from the match at the Anoeta because we were outplayed for large parts of the game, had to come from behind and needed a questionable offside call to stop the home team going ahead again.

Barcelona must beware Celtic or come 2nd to Man City

As long as the players of FC Barcelona take the Champions League game this evening seriously and play somewhere close to their usual quality then Luis Enrique should be heading back to Spain with all three points in the bag. We need to do that as well or Barca could find themselves in the odd position of being runners up in the UCL group and facing a tougher task in the knockout stage.

Can BIG Barcelona win pressure Real Madrid before derby?

Posted on November 17, 2016 by admin

If things go the way of FC Barcelona this weekend in La Liga then Luis Enrique could see his side get back on top of the Spanish league table where most people connected with the Catalan club feel we belong and have gotten used to over the last 10 years or so.

We do not even need the current leaders Real Madrid to lose either, as long as the likes of Messi, Neymar and Suarez can get a good win at home to struggling Malaga, which is something you would generally think is pretty likely at the Camp Nou, especially as the team from Andalucia have let in six goals in their last two matches.

Magical Messi saves Barcelona from Sevilla defeat

Some people in the football media have been suggesting that the Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi was past his best and could no longer have the amazing ability to win a game on his own or produce the breathtaking football which has seen him become the most successful player ever with four Ballon D’Or awards to his name so far.

Don’t bet on injury crisis stopping Barcelona beating Granada

Posted on October 28, 2016 by admin

There is no doubt that FC Barcelona have an injury crisis on their hands, especially in terms of the defence, Luis Enrique was already having to cope without the Spanish international left back and centre back Jordi Alba and Gerard Pique and the problem got worse this week after the French star Jeremy Matthieu joined them on the sidelines after picking up a foot problem in the Catalonian Super Cup win over Espanyol on Tuesday, as reported by Sky Sports.

Enrique reacts to Barcelona baiting in PERFECT way

Posted on October 28, 2016 by admin

It has been a tough week for the Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and his players, who have somehow found themselves embroiled in controversy and even blamed for the incident last week in the hard fought La Liga win away to Valencia. But the manager responded this week in the best way by drawing a line under the issue and reminding everyone what FC Barcelona stands for.

Anyone would think that Barca were the bad guys the way the Spanish media have been recently and the Spanish football authorities did not help when they fined Valencia a measly 1500 euros after Naymar was hit by a bottle from the crowd when celebrating Lionel Messi’s late winner from the spot.
