How successful will be Xavi's side this Season? Will they be able to remain at the top of La Liga when the Season draws to an end?

FC Barcelona had a rather confusing season so far this season. They strangely find themselves at the top of the La Liga summit during the winter break. It's been some time since they have become the winter Champions. But at the same time, they find themselves out of Europe's Most Prestigious Competition - UEFA Champions League; and that too in a rather disastrous fashion. And they also lost the First Clasico in a similar way against the Current Champions.

Despite all these most of the bookies have Barcelona as their top target to win La Liga this season. But in reality how good is Barcelona's odds of gaining silverware, that too the most prestigious one in Spain this season?

How Good has been Xavi's Side this Season?

Just like the Season has unfolded so far, the team's performance also had a see-saw nature throughout the season so far. It never was disappointing and showed a great glimpse of the team which could emerge as the World beater in a season or so. But at the same time, in the biggest battles, the team has shown nerves which will hold them back as the World Winner. Kind of an Oxymoron isn't it?

That's been the case with Xavi at Barcelona for the last two seasons. He has justified everyone on their choice of selecting him as the head coach. But when it comes to the biggest of matches, he has also shown a kind of nerves which has affected his decision-making. One of the prime examples would be using of Alonso in these Champions League matches.

Alonso was a good backup option, but drafting him into the team straight away was a stupid choice. That too when the tea hasn't played with him. It appears his confidence in Balde and the youngster wilted when he was under the pressure. Similarly with a host of decisions.

One of the baffles would be the insistence on playing 4-3-3 and not trying a variation of that. With the kind of youngsters he has in his kitty, his core strength would be his ability to experiment. The team still hasn't found a clear-cut identity and establishing that would be Xavi's most significant task.

If he managed to do that, Barcelona could be quite successful this season. That success could catapult further success in coming seasons, both in Spain and Europe. The fans have been eagerly waiting for that.
