Barcelona returns to LaLiga hell, with many pending, but with the return of Messi and De Jong

BARCELONA – Barcelona, ​​once the echoes of its exhibition in Kiev have been turned off, returns this Sunday to its sad and urgent reality of LaLiga, receiving an Osasuna against whom there is no other answer than victory to maintain a certain option to re-engage with the title fight, having lost more points than he won in his first eight rounds, which marks his worst start to the championship since 1991.

With the returns of Lionel Messi and Frenkie de Jong, absent for rest in the Champions League, the recovery of Busquets, the doubt of Sergiño Dest, who with discomfort will not know until hours before the game if he can enter the eleven, and the well-known absences by Injury to Piqué, Araujo, Sergi Roberto and Ansu Fati The victory, at any price, is understood to be essential against an opponent who only won in six of their 38 previous visits to the Camp Nou … Although one of them was in the last, in the sad farewell to the League last year and that puts the Barça team on guard.

Ronald Koeman’s phrase that the League “is very long” could be counterprogrammed another by Johan Cruyff who in his time recalled that the title “is not won at Christmas, but can be lost” to understand the challenge, enormous, which the Barça team is facing at this point, needing to overcome nine points against Atlético de Madrid and which begins on the 12th weekend below Real Sociedad, although in the case of the Basques, leaders, the severity is less considering that they have played two more games.

“We need the three points”, the Barça coach acknowledged in this sense, placing special emphasis on the fact that the immediate calendar of his team has to mark his recovery in a particularly complicated championship from the beginning. A single league victory (against Betis) adds Barça in their last six games, having conceded nine goals to show that defensive strength is still one of their pending issues, as well as finding a substitute goal scorer for Luis Suárez in both the Lionel Messi numbers remain (penalties on the sidelines) very far from normal and, also, he needs to regain his pulse in terms of the game in the center of the field, avoiding that breakdown of the team, between defense and attack, which has so much injured.

Antoine Griezmann abandons Messi and Barcelona for the United States league

After standing out in the Champions League game against Dinamo Kiev, Antoine Griezmann put football aside and enjoys his passion for NFL American football.

November 25, 2020 · 09:52 hs

Barcelona is still shocked by yesterday’s great victory against Dinamo Kiev, which gave it a pass to the next phase of the UEFA Champions League two days before the group-zone games end.

With a resounding 4 to 0 and with a large majority of substitutes, those led by Ronald Koeman showed a great superiority over their rivals and made it clear that they are for great objectives this season.

Antoine Grezmann, who scored the last goal against the Ukrainians, celebrated this victory in a very special way, putting aside his obligations as a footballer and focusing on one of his greatest passions such as American football and the NFL.

Trying to disassociate himself from the controversies that surround him with Lionel Messi, the Frenchman turned a deaf ear and published a large number of images referring to the sport that moves millions in the United States.


FC Barcelona. The similar plays of Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi

Editorial Mediotiempo

Mexico City / 25.11.2020 12:40:46

On the occasion of death of Diego Armando Maradona, the Barcelona made a compilation of his best plays wrapped in the shirt Blaugrana and incidentally compared some of these with those he has done throughout his history at the club Lionel Messi.

The compilation is made with plays that are very similar between both Argentines and it is that both got history in the Barcelona, as well as great goals that had a lot of meaning.


It’s viral: the video of Messi in Barcelona that breaks your soul

Throughout his professional career, Lionel Messi it was said that he lived an oasis in Barcelona and a hell in the Argentina Selection. In the latter, not because of not being part of a group or not having friends, but because of the level of play and the criticism he received constantly.

Last week he returned from the FIFA Date, where he showed his best face with the Albiceleste, and hardly stepped on Spain exploded by the statements of the environment of Antoine Griezmann.

Today he suffers in Barcelona, ​​where he wanted to go a few months ago, the lack of a project and the crisis of results. An aspect that he did live with his country. However, never before, not even in Argentina, did it seem that he had so little tact with his teammates.

On Twitter, user JuannDis shared a video of Messi in one of the last training sessions, where he is completely separated from the group.

“You see it that way and it automatically breaks your soul,” he wrote. And yes, it breaks our souls. Undoubtedly, this is not the ending that Ten would have wanted.

Will it be your last months in Barcelona?


The Barcelona of today | THE VIEWER

Featured news from International Soccer

1 hour ago

No one should stay where they are not happy. If forced to do so, the most probable and logical thing is that this annoyance grows and becomes a much heavier burden to carry. The best player in the world was forced to continue on pain of paying the exorbitant termination clause, in the only place in the world where he always wanted to be, but which due to various circumstances became an unbearable reality. When Messi sent the famous burofax, the link that seemed indestructible between him and Fútbol Club Barcelona was already broken, driven by a chain of errors from the recently departed president of the club, Josep Bartomeu, and his court in the last years of his mandate. Few teams depend on a player so that things go well or badly, and the culé is one of them.

The arrival of Ronald Koeman did not seem and has not been enough fuel to propel the ship and the few reinforcements hired much less, despite the willingness of Setién’s successor to surround the flea.

It is incredible to see the league table of positions and to find Barça closer to relegation than to the lead, it seems like a horror story. His defense, increasingly vulnerable, is the sad protagonist of the season and his great victim is the best goalkeeper on the planet, Ter Stegen. Its containment zone no longer resists, like a cracked dam in the rainy season. Sergio Busquets is going through his most discreet form and has run out of squires. De Jong is not consolidated and Pjanic has not been a solution. Antoine Griezmann is still a stranger, who does not even give him to be a starter in Kiev, Coutinho is the king of intermittency, Dembelé is a quite particular case, Ansu Fati has been injured, and let’s add Piqué, one of the references that this year he no longer plays. The Pedri and Puig promises are still green and have finished setting up a light reality. Lio is not alone, but he is surrounded by the faded reflections of soldiers who are no longer so critical in helping him achieve amazing victories, just a few that will only serve to raise the levels of nostalgia. The regularity to sustain the usual struggle in Spain has not yet appeared. An uncertain local panorama that would not endure what has not yet been broken, his participation in the Champions League that has so far been his only incentive. He qualified for the second phase without problem after yesterday’s win in Ukraine, which is not enough yet to bet blindly that he will reach the semifinals, to tell the truth.

Historically, Barça has had bumps after big cycles, the most recent after Johan Cruyff’s Dream Team, I don’t know if he is entering the next one, it is still premature to affirm it. Likewise, it has always raised and reached the highest level after crises. Nor do I claim that he will lose the category, but it will be very difficult for him to light up in such a way that he can fight again at the top this season. There is only one football, in any country if things are handled badly from the head everything has repercussions. The managerial mistakes that have been made for a long time had to annihilate the goose that laid the golden eggs, which got tired of producing talent since the Masía lost its essence, has serious financial problems and got used to making mistakes in hiring and decisions that they had that will have an unfailing impact in the near future.


Messi will not play Champions, Barcelona and life without 10

Barcelona announced that neither Lionel Messi nor Frenkie de Jong will be summoned for the commitment of Champions League against Dinamo Kiev this Tuesday.

According Koeman, the Champions League campaign has been very good for Barcelona with 9 points as a result of three victories and it is an ideal moment to rest these two players.

Casualties of Messi Y de Jong are added to those of Pique, Ronald Araújo, Sergi Roberto, Ansu Fati and Sergio Busquets who are injured, so it is the perfect opportunity to give play to the culé quarry and several youths have already been cited, including the American Konrad of the Source who normally plays in the Barcelona subsidiary.

Barcelona and life without 10

It is more than evident that the relationship between Messi and Barcelona was fractured and the future of the Argentine points to other destinations as soon as his contractual obligation with the Catalans ends.

The generational change is coming in Barcelona and Messi is one of the symbols of the past, of ancient glories that may not be more.

Although the campaign in Champions has been good, in LaLiga Barcelona marches in the position 12, has the same number of victories as defeats, the team is missing and the Blaugranas will have to learn to solve their problems without Messi as it is almost a fact that he will leave.

This Champions League match is the perfect opportunity for Koeman to give play to the next generation of footballers forged in La Massia, between injuries and technical decisions, Barcelona will come out with a very young team that aims more for the future than for the present of the Champions League.
