The 3-0 victory home gives Barcelona a comfortable platform to progress to the Final of Champions league, their ultimate goal of the season.



Barcelona Looking for a Solid Display at Anfield

At the start of the Season, Lionel Messi made it clear about what remains his and the club's first priority. It was the UEFA Champions League. He was categorical in his assessment about whether we could proceed yet another year without bringing the most coveted trophy in Europe home.


Now with a 3-0 victory in the first leg, Barcelona remains the firm favorite to reach yet another final. Despite the comfortable scoreline, which in the normal situation would have already secured the progress. But last year's Roma result hangs like a domiciles sword over Barca. That is the result which instills fear in Barcelona and hope in Liverpool.

Despite the tie being two legged, the first leg result is paramount for Barcelkona considering thier not so great away form.




Barcelona Football Club would be heading into the Semi-Final of UEFA Champions League 2018-19 with the disadvantage of playing the second leg away from home. Considering our troubles of the past in Europe, especially away from home; this match more or less have become a must-win situation.


Barcelona goes into the first leg in a triumphant mood, winning another La Liga title; their 8 in last eleven season. On the other hand, Liverpool is in a tough dogfight for the title in England and we have to see how that pressure acts by the time of the second leg.

Barcelona would be looking to produce a perfect Night at Camp Nou after a very sub-dued performance in the first leg.




Barcelona holds a definite advantage against Manchester United when they line out for the second leg of Champions League Quarter Final at the Camp Nou. Despite the lackluster display in the first leg, Barcelona looked pretty solid in defense. That is a welcome change for a side which has shown some defensive fragility in recent past.


Barcelona fans would be hoping for a better display from their big match players in the second leg. Even though he created the goal in the first leg, Lionel Messi had a very average night at Old Trafford. Everyone is hoping a big night from him in the Quarter Final. He hasn't shown in Quarter Finals for some time!

After Falling down twice at this stage, Barcelona will be looking to script a new Champter in Europe when they face Manchester United at Old Trafford tomorro night.




At the start of the season, Lionel Messi made it clear what is the priority of Barcelona this season. And without any surprise, it was the UEFA Champions League. After falling twice at the Quarter-Final stages, Barcelona could not afford to take one more failure in the competition. Especially, when their arch-rivals won it thrice in a row!


The disappointing nature of last season's exit is still hurting the majority of the fans and players out there. When we lost to Juventus, it was somewhat understandable; as we suffered at the hands of a very organized team. But against Roma, it was all down to an uninspiring coach, demotivated team and total complacency all across.

Do Messi have to do it all alone against Real Madrid, or will his teammates stand up? That's the real question in the buildup.




FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid, Copa del Rey Preview

Lionel Messi was playing with GOD mode ON against Sevilla, singlehandedly winning the match, scoring thrice and assisting the other. In spite of the magical performance, many questioned his teammates' commitments and performance. So when Barcelona lineup tomorrow at the Santiago Bernabeu, all focus will be on his strike partners.


Real Madrid had a brilliant outing in the first leg, especially considering the lack of confidence displayed abundantly this season. And they do start the 2nd Leg at home on the front foot, courtesy of the valuable away goal.

This Clasico has so much at stake for both Managers with completely different perspectives. For Real Madrid's Lopetegui, this could be the last chance.



FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid Match Preview


Spanish League has been on for a quite ride this season in contrast to the previous seasons. There is not a single team from the Capital Side in the top four going into the season's first 'El Clasico'. That in itself is a rarity of serious kinds, and then think that the top two spots are occupied by the Two Catalan Giants. What a situation for the rebel Republic.

Despite the absence of Lionel Messi, Everyone expects Barcelona to do enough to secure a vital three points when they host Inter Milan at the Camp Nou.


FC Barcelona Need to Go All Out in this Must Win Challenge

FC Barcelona vs Inter Milan Match Preview


Yet another must win match is staring at us, despite winning the first two group stage matched pretty convincingly. Lionel Messi's absence would be the most talking point of the night and it will take enormous effort for the players to just keep their focus on the task when they face Inter Milan at the Camp Nou.


Inter Milan like Barcelona have won the first two group stage matches and sits comfortably in the second position in the league. The performance in the Group stages has been a huge surprise to many; a lot of people expected Tottenham to do well. Instead, it's Inter which is giving Barcelona the toughest fight.

FC Barcelona will be looking to move ahead of the pack when they face Valencia away from home tonight. Their hope would be that the Spirit of Wembley would see them past an opponent who is struggling at the moment.


Bbarca vs Valencia Match Preview

Barcelona Football Club cannot miss the opportunity which the 'turn of circumstances' have presented itself to them. With Real Madrid ending up losing against Alves, who finds themselves third in the table suddenly; Barcelona Football club needs to tighten up and grab three points on offer. Any failure to do so, could see the likes of Sevilla and Atletico Madrid leaping past us on the table.


In past few weeks, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona have been doing each other big time favours by not grabbing the gifted oppurtunities. Will Barcelona reciprocate the favour once again this time?


Oct 3, 2018


For FC Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur, tonight's match at the Wembley will be crucial for qualifying from one of the toughest Groups in this season's Champions League Group Stage.


Barca vs Tottenham Match Preview

Barcelona Football Club would be hoping that in Stadium whgere two of the most famous European Triumphs of FC Barcelona took place, is able to bring in a revival of fortunes for the side. And they need a serious change in fortunes after picking up just two points from their last three matches in the League. From going with 100% percent record, they are suddenly three matches without a win. That extending to a fourth match is unthinkable at the point.

AAll eyes will be on Barca to see how they respond to the surprising defeat at the hands of Leganes. Will Athletic Bilbao pay for Barca's defeat or will Bilbao will make us suffer more?


Lionel Messi scoring against Athletic Bilbao #lionelmess #messi #barcelona #barca #fcbarcelona

While previewing the matches for September, I have remarked why the match against Athletic Bilbao was one of the toughest and the Leganes and Girona was a cake walk. Now those tow samll teams have made sure that my prediction surely made a fool out of me. Against Girona and leganes we have one point to show; and now we enter into a crunch match against Athletic where failure cannot be an option.


Athletic despite their good result against Real Madrid a couple of weeks back, are in the midst of a horrible run of form. They haven't managed to win in last four games and that makes them the ideal opponent for Barca to forget the defeat against Leganes.

Barca will be traveling to Anoeta in their first major test. Visit to Anoeta has been a struggle in recent occasions, and there is a high chance that we may be in for the same treatment.


Messi and Fc barcelona preparing to face Real Sociedad

Barcelona Football Club will be visiting Estadio Municipal de Anoeta to face Real Sociedad tomorrow in what will be their first major test of La Liga 2018-19 season. FC Barcelona has been pretty lucky with the run of fixture so far, especially having to face three of the easier teams in the start. Real Sociedad away visit will give a clear picture of the capability of this team and how much the absence of Iniesta is going to affect us this season.


If you consider our record from 2010 onwards, we managed to win at Anoeta only one; that was in last season. Last season we managed to comeback from 2-0 down to win 4-2 against Real Sociedad at their home. That match was extremely even and the difference was the clinical finishing of our players. A similar result will be wonderful for Barca.


May 4, 2018



Even though FC Barcelona have won the La Liga title and Copa Del Rey; still this Clasico matters a lot especially for the future of their Manager.




Normally a domestic double in any league is a huge task for a team to achieve; but with this Barca side we have become so used to it; it appears like a routine affair! Everytime we don't achieve the treble it feels like a bit of disappointing season; little we remember that only it has ever been done twice in history.


Considering where we were at the start of the season, any fan would have taken the domestic double. The disappointment stems from the fact that we have rounded up the league effectively by december and how we screwed ourselves against Roma. It hurts more seeing how other teams are also seriously under-performing; which definitely makes you wonder had we played properly in the second leg at Roma, would there be anyone who could stop us from performing the treble.

With Iniesta's presence still a doubt, Barca will be depending on Lionel Messi more to get the job done against Chelsea at the Camp Nou in the second led of UEFA Champions League Knockout tie.



Lionel Messi celebrating Scoring against Chelsea

Lionel Messi, will be once again the focus point when Barcelona lines up against Chelsea in the second leg. Lionel Messi who became father for the third time this weekend dropped himself out of the squad which traveled won against Malaga in the weekend. He would be fully rested for this clash and will be the focal point of Barca's attack. Despite Messi's heroics this season, one person dominates the entire build up to this match - Andres Iniesta. Iniesta was expected to sit out this tie after picking up an hamstring injury, but now there are serious report coming out of Barcelona that he may even start. Personally I don't think he will start, but going by the progress he has made in recovery, he definitely will play a part in second half.


Mar 3, 2018


FC Barcelona's lead on top of the table has been reduced to five points from the eleven they held at the start of 2018. Atletico's visit to Camp Nou gives Barca the perfect chance to regain the momentum of La Liga race.



March is turning out to be a very crucial month in Barca's Silverware pursuit! At the start of the year, sitting with an enormous eleven point lead this fixture was never considered a crucial one; instead it felt like a fixture when the last opposition will move out of way to Barca's La Liga triumph. How quick things change? In a span of one month we have seen our lead getting reduced from eleven points to five points. At the same time, Atletico Madrid have completely turn around the season and has launched a full fight; a full force open assault on La Liga title race.

FC Barcelona will be looking for a solid result in the first leg of UEFA Champions League Knock-out stage at Stamford Bridge.


FC barcelona vs Chelsea at stamford Bridge

Barcelona Football Club will be back to a stadium where it all started, the 'Golden Run'. Stamford Bridge has been a special place for Barca interms of triumph and controversy surrounding those victories. The current Golden run started at Stamford Bridge under Pep Guardiola with the 'Iniesta Golazzo'. Before that we were meeting Chelsea regularly from the Rijkaards era and each one of them ended with some controversy on its own. So this fixture have quite a history in recent Champions League years and there won't be any doubt that this coming encounter also will have its share of excitement.

FC Barcelona will be facing Eibar in the 24th round of La Liga 2017-18 season. Despite the importance of this away match, all focus and attention will be on the mid week Champions League encounter!


FC Barcelona will be looking for nothing other than a victory against Eibar in the 24th round of La Liga 2017-18. Lionel Messi will be instrumental in getting the job done for Barca!

After a good start to 2018 season; suddenly the Barca juggernaut seems like have lost a bit of steam. Two draws in a row and if we club the difficult result against Alaves; that's three poor performances in recent times. The Espanyol result could be excused even though as I wrote that day, the result would have been different had we taken the initiative in first half. Suddenly the match against Eibar has taken a bigger magnitude than what we would have imagined at the start of the year. A bad result would seriously jeopardize the momentum we had in the League and also may spill into the mid week Champions League Encounter.

FC Barcelona would be looking for another efficient perfromance to take them past Valencia into the final of this year's Copa Del Rey Competition.


FC Barcelona will be looking to secure a fifth consecutive Copa Del rey final when they take on Valencia tonight

B arcelona Football Club will be looking to book a place in the fifth consecutive Copa Del Rey final when they face Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium in Valencia tonight. FC Barcelona heads into the second leg with clear advantage of winning the first leg at the Camp Nou. Sevilla, last night booked their place in the final with an aggregate score of 3-1 against Real Madrid killer Leganés. Valverde announced an almost full strength squad to visit Mestalla; the only ones who are missing are Vermaelen and Dembélé due to injury and Denis Suárez and Lucas Digne who are actually left out. The situation with Denis is becoming a concern to me as he is not getting any time and club failed to loan him out also!

FC Barcelona faces Valencia in the first leg of Copa Del Rey Semi-Final at the Camp Nou on Friday night.


FC Barcelona is all set to face Valencia on Friday in the first leg of Copa del Rey semi-Final 2017-18

FC Barcelona will be facing Valencia FC tomorrow night in the first leg of Copa Del Rey Semi-Final tie at the Camp Nou. When the draw was made everyone agreed this was was the toughest draw possible for Barca. Not only we have to play Valencia but we have to play the second leg at Estadio de Mestalla. Valencia lies currently in 3rd position in the League and will present a huge challenge for Barca to overcome. Both the teams come to this match following contrasting results in league. FC Barcelona managed to continue their winning run in league but Valencia was thrashed 4-1 at home by Real Madrid. In both the games the scoreline never gave the clear picture; Valencia wasn't that bad against Real Madrid and Barca weren't that great against Alaves!

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.


Lionel Messi would be instrumental for Barca in their second leg tie against Espanyol in Copa Del Rey

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.
