FC Barcelona continued their winning ways in League with a 2-1 come back from behind victory over Alaves at the Camp Nou last night. With this victory Barca have regained the eleven points lead on the top of the league table. This was supposed to be a easy game as Alaves was lying just one places above the releagtion zone. But it turned out to be anything but that; Alaves took the lead in first half and we were struggling to equalize for most of the part against a well organised side. It took two late goals the first from Saurez in 73rd minute and the winner via free kick by Messi in 84th minute to secure the three points.

FC Barcelona will face Valencia in Copa Del Rey

FC Barcelona to face Valencia in Copa Del Rey Semi-Final

Copa Del Rey semi-final draw is out and Barca is to face Valencia in the semi-final. In the other semis, Sevilla will face Leganés; that's a clash between two side which eliminated the big teams from Capital City. Not only Barcelona will face the toughest team, we have to play the second leg away from home. That makes the tie pretty difficult and also increases the importance of the first leg.

FC Barcelona secured semi-final spot in Copa Del Rey with a 2-0 victory against Espanyol at Camp Nou. Lionel Messi and Luis Saurez both scored the goals for Barca on a night where Coutinho made his official Barca debut. Before the start of the match there was a tribute paid for the service for Mascherano, who is leaving Barca.

Watch the full match highlights also the tribute paid to Mashcerano below with English Commentary:

FC Barcelona secured the passage to Semi Final of 2017-18 Copa Del Rey Semi-Finals with a 2-0 victory over city rivals Espanyol at the Camp Nou. Luis Saurez and Lionel Messi both scored early in first half to help Barca over-turn the 1-0 deficit from first leg.

Lionel Messi scored the decisive goal which took Barca past Espanyol securing semi-final place in Copa Del Rey 2017-18

FC Barcelona have secured the semi-final spot in Copa Del Rey semi-finals with a 2-0 victory with an efficient performance at the Camp Nou over city rivals Espanyol. Any doubt of Barca's progress was put to rest when Luis Saurez scored early on the first half negating the opponents advantage from first leg. As I mentioned in the Barca vs Espanyol Preview, the early goal completely changed the tie to Barca's advantage and Lionel Messi's goal secured the victory and passage. Everyone expected Barca to seal the victory with at least one more goal but that wasn't to be and that made for a nervous ending when it was clear a goal from Espanyol means we will go out on away goals. But then our defense never gave a decent sniff to Espanyol's offense even though our forwards were wasting chances after chances.

FC Barcelona would be facing their first do-or-die situation of the 2017-18 season when they face Espanyol at the Camp Nou in the 2nd Leg of Copa Del Rey tie. Last mid-week Espanyol condemned Barca to their first defeat of the season when they won 1-0 at their home. In normal circumstances a 1-0 deficit won't be much of a problem for Barca especially at home; but such has been this mid-week that everyone is worried about Barca becoming the third biggest upset! Last night against every expectation Real Madrid lost to Leganés at their very home and got themselves eliminated on away goal after leading the first leg 1-0. Now Real Madrid has joined their city rivals Atletico who was eliminated by Sevilla a day ago.

Barcelona Futbol Club players have not let down their intensity so far in the league despite everyone of their challengers falling behind. It was a weekend where the second placed Atletico Madrid dropped points when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Girona. But that never made Barca players complacent, instead they saw their chance to increase their lead at top to eleven points.

All to play for Barca in the second leg of the Copa del Rey tie between FC Barcelona and Celta de Vigo. With the first leg ending 1-1 and Celta's recent history against Barca, this leg will take the priority over weekend's La Liga fixture.

FC Barcelona will be looking to win comfortably the second leg against Celta at the Camp Nou. In order to do that they need Lionel Messi at his best -

For Erneste Valverde, Barca's second leg tie against Celta will take the highest priority over the weekend's travel to Estadio Municipal de Anoeta to take on Real Sociedad. That's the good thing about having a nine point lead over the second placed team in the league; you could prioritize matches. In the league we will get chances to rectify poor results because of the lead. But in the cup we are more or less in a must win match. Technically we need a goalless draw to proceed but that kind of attitude will spell danger. So we should go for the win; anyways we always do!

With Barca capturing Philippe Coutinho at a record £142 Million Pounds, the future of many promising Barca youngsters and fringe players are at stake. There could be an exodus of players come this summer inorder to balance the book at FC Barcelona.

5 Barca Youngster who could push for a transfer next summer -

With the conclusion of Coutinho deal there is expected to be a substantial number of clear-out at Barca come this summer. There are some senior players along with young players who will be either forced or will prefer to mve out of Camp Nou. Of the senior players Mascherano is expected to move to China as he is very much near the end of his career (then looking at Paulinho situation it may be too early to say), Aleix Vidal is another player who is expected to move out even though I wouldn't be very much surprised if the club decides to retain. He could be still a good squad player, one who could play in multiple role. That may be sometimes under-appreciated, but still would have an heavy impact in keeping the squad fresh for bigger matches.

Here in this article we take a look at the five youngsters of Barca who could be making a move away from Camp Nou as Coutinho arroval seriously threatens their chances:

The game wasn't an exhibition of sort nor Barca was at their best; something very much understandable after a break. But then they never had to be at the best.
