Lionel Messi has not seen a single minute of rest after the restart. Even if the La Liga title chase goes to the wire, Quique Setién may have to rest him now!


Setien and Messi

For Barcelona, it's the faintest of the hope that's driving their extra-ordinary push to the grand finale of their title defense. The hope that Real Madrid will eventually slip, and we will be able to capitalize. Mathematically it's very much possible for us to win this, but realistically is there any hope?

When Corona break came, Barcelona was two points ahead of Real Madrid. But after the break, we were lethargic and trail by one point with our opponent having a match in hand. Barcelona always had the worst run of matches coming to the finale, and that is proving to be the difference maker!

Arturo Vidal's vital early goal secures Barcelona in a vital away fixture. Now all eyes shifts to Real Madrid's game against an in-form Granada.


Ter Stegan was instrumental for Barcelona against Real Valladolid

It was a struggle in the end. FC Barcelona secured three vital points against Real Valladolid, cutting the lead at the top to just one point. As expected, Barcelona did the only thing they could do in the chase, try to win all their matches. And obviously, there is the small factor of praying for Real Madrid dropping points.

It was an early goal from Vidal created by Lionel Messi which became the difference-maker. Messi with that assist now has 20 assists in this season.

Barcelona did what they could do at the moment, winning their game and stay on the trail of Real Madrid. This wasn't any spectacular performance, but good enough to secure three points.

Barcelona secured vital three points in their mostly fading campaign to defend the La Liga title. This victory moves them a point behind the league leader Real Madrid. The capital side has one game in hand and all eyes will be on how they fare against Alaves, who themselves are struggling big time.

The 1-0 victory against Espanyol wasn't spectacular but was enough to secure three points. Barcelona's victory confirmed the relegation of their city rivals to the Segunda Division. It's quite sad to see a Catalan side going down, but it was inevitable.

Best Dribbles by Lionel Messi


Lionel Messi has mesmerized us all with his unbelievable miracle dribbles. The strange fact is that if we take a list of his amazing dribbles, which hit the post or narrowly missed, that will round to quite some number. Some of his most fanous goals are also scored from his mesmerizing dribbles.

Which one of these is your favourite dribbles across his career? Or is it another one, let me know.

After a waiting period which threatened to extend to infinity, we finally saw the much anticipated Messi-Saurez-Griezmann trident clicking together. Is this the start of something beautiful?


Messi, Saurez, and Griezmann started to Click

Finally, the much-awaited, much-anticipated trident clicked together - Messi, Saurez, and Griezmann, popularly known as the MSG. Is this the start of something new or just another false hope? Only time will tell. How Barcelona's season will end will depend heavily on the answer to this!

There were glimpses of hope in some of the earlier matches. But it's fair to say, those were mere aberrations. This was in contrast looked like the real deal. The difference was the way they were linking and how easily they fit into the system.

Best FC Barcelona Players

You don't need to be a lifelong Barca fan to recognise the club's unparalleled contributions to football history. The club is the richest in the world, with annual revenues exceeding €840 million, as well as being home to the world's highest-paid players and the highest number of Golden Shoe Award recipients.

With this in mind, it is unsurprising that FC Barcelona has produced some of the greatest sporting talent in the history of football, with countless star players going on to become household names and living legends. Let's take a closer look at the best players in Barca's history, and what it is that makes them so great.

Barcelona secured a brilliant victory over Villareall away froom home and that too with a majestic performance, a rare combination these days. In the Grand scheme of things, will this even matter?


Messi, Saurez and Griezman forms the MSG Trident

Barca - 4 | Villareal - 1

FC Barcelona scored a vital 4-1 victory away from home against Villareal, a rarity these days! If the final scoreline was a rarity, the quality of the football on display was even more. I can't even recall the last time we saw such a brilliant performance from this Barcelona side away from home.

Despite the quality on display, this may have arrived a tad too late for Barcelona's title prospects. Real Madrid now lies four points ahead and once again with help of dubious VAR decision. The chances of them slipping appears very rare, or is it safe to say the chances of the referees and the League allowing them to slip is pretty rare.

FC Barcelona produced a sensational dispkay away from home (a rarity these days) against Villareal to cut the lead at top to four points. Lionel Messi provided the assists for both Saurez and Griezmann. This was clearly the nnight when the 'MSG' trident really connected.

Check out the Highlights Video below:

Is this draw the final nail in Barcelona's hope for retaining the title? Barcelona needs a near miracle now to retain the League title!


FC Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Match Report


FC Barcelona - 2 | Atletico Madrid - 2

In one of the most vital matches of this season, Barcelona was held to 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou by a high flying Atletico Madrid. Messi and company needed to win this match at any cost to keep their La Liga hopes alive. Even then it wouldn't have been enough! But with this result, they may have kissed goodbye to the title!

By the time Barcelona line-up for the next match, the lead at the top could be a significant four points. With only four matches left, that could be too much to overturn, even if this Barcelona team finds their top form. With the kind of display now we are displaying, there could be no hope at all.

Quique Setién's arrival at Barcelona raised a lot of hope, a hope to see once again Barcelona playing Beautiful football. Now it appears he may last a couple of more games in Barcelona!


It appears that Barcelona's managerial crisis will not end anytime soon. With results like the one we saw in the last few matches, the crisis is only going to get worse. Quique Setién at the moment appears clueless in dealing with Barcelona and it's becoming very evident with every passing day.

If reports from Spain are to be believed, he will be sacked tonight, provided Barcelona fail to beat Atletico. Going by the team's recent form and Atletico's recent form, the chances of us taking three points from this match is very much non-existent. If that happens, we can kiss goodbye to the League title (if we already haven't)!

FC Barcelona has been dealt a huge blow in their title pursuit this day with the announcement of injury to their Dutch Maestro, Frankie De Jong. The midfielder has not featured since the first match after the restart. That was the 4-0 victory over Real Mallorca.

He looked spectacular that day and Barcelona has been missing him henceforth!

Barcelona was held to a goalless draw against Sevilla. Maybe one can say, the Catalans were extremely lucky to even come back with a point.

Sevilla drew with Barcelona


The clash between the first placed and third-placed team in La Liga ended in a stalemate. The draw still kept Barcelona at top of the League, but Barcelona's fate in the League may have been taken out of their hands. Real Madrid who plays tomorrow night will have a chance to move back to the League summit!

The performance showcased at the Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium raises a lot of questions about the team, especially about their ability to withstand such a heavy schedule, which is being played out.

Griezmann has done precious little to affect the game in Barcelona after his arrival in summer. Does he deserve to be in the starting eleven? Maybe it's just the first season settling issues, Maybe Not!

Has Griezmann Done Enough to Deserve being a regular Starter at Barcelona?

Antoine Griezmann has managed to divide the Cules into two sections with his performance so far this season. There is one section that truly believes that he has been good so far and will get better with every match he plays. And then there is the other that believes he needs to be eased slowly into the team so that he will start learning Barcelona way gradually.

In either case, all fans are united in the belief that Griezmann was the perfect and most suited signing we did last summer. No one doubts his caliber. The only doubt is whether the expectation that he will be a grand success in his first season is fair to the Frenchman or not.

The long layoff appears to have not subsided Barcelona's spirit, instead they appeared charged up. Something we were missing in the last few matches!

FC Barcelona players Celebrating 4-0 victory over Real Mallorca

Barca - 4 | Real Mallorca - 0

Barcelona restarted their La Liga campaign off the Corona Virus layoff with a brilliant performance. Considering that almost all players were lacking match fitness, coming to this match, this performance should be considered nothing short of spectacular.

The 4-0 scoreline did perfect justice to Barcelona's effort in the match, that's something we struggled to say even in some of better performances of this season. Vidal, Braithwaite, Alba, and Messi all scored to take vital three away points for Barcelona. This opens up a five-point lead on top and puts enough pressure on Real Madrid who will be facing Eibar at home tonight.

FC Barcelona vs Real Mallorca Preview


The 2019-20 Spanish La Liga season restarts on Thursday after a three-month lay-off with a trip to RCD Mallorca first on the cards for Barcelona.

Sevilla will host rivals Real Betis on Thursday night in the first game back with all games scheduled to kick off at different times over six weeks which promises to make for a thrilling end, particularly in the current climate.

Barcelona is the final of four games on Saturday when we travel to Mallorca whilst Real Madrid aren’t in action until Sunday evening, hosting Eibar. After such a lengthy disruption fans may want to assess the La Liga predictions ahead of the matches from Thursday.

Almost all the European is in the Process of being started, some have already started. But the big question will be how many of them would be able to finish the season? And then there is the Champions League and Europa Cup!

Will the Season complete without any hindrance?

With almost all the Leagues in Europe starting this weekend, some are in process of starting in the coming week, a lost season seems to be getting revived. All those permutations and combinations are back in play, who will win the League, and who gets relegated and who gets promoted, all those questions are back in the air.

For Football fans across the World, this is a welcome change. Despite the risk involved, the matches will be played in their empty stadiums. That's not going to deter the spirit of the players and fans. Both those sections have realized how dreadful their lives look without the game. So with lots of prayers, we move forward.

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has reportedly given the club a huge boost by letting it be known that he is prepared to commit his long-term future to the club.

Ter Stegen is currently under contract at Camp Nou until the end of the 2021/22 season, and talks over his Barca future had broken down in recent months.

However, reports in the Catalan press suggest Barcelona are in a position to ‘unblock’ contract negotiations with the 28-year-old, and are planning on moving ahead in their bid to try and work out a lengthy and lucrative new deal.

The German League restarting last night was quite a sight for Football fans across the world. They now see the hope at the end of the tunnel.


It was a sight we waited so long to witness, the restarting of Football. Every football fan watched last night's restarting of European Club Football with hope; hope to see their favorite League kick start soon.

It was quite strange to see all those empty stadiums, even the quietest of noise was heard. Football may not look the same without fans cheering, but then this could be the new normal for at least a year.

If La Liga fails to resume this season, Should Barcelona be declared the Champions of La Liga 2019-20 Season? Consistently they were just better, but have they done enough?




La Liga authorities have suspended the League for two weeks following the Corna scare that has gripped the entire European Continent and other countries. As of now, the suspension is only for two weeks, but it's merely common sense to assume that the League will remain suspended for the rest of the season. Corona has become such a scary situation, that we are looking at the possibility of most of the Sporting event suspended indefinitely.


If La Liga doesn't come back this season, who will be declared the Champions. If a Champion needs to be declared, then Barcelona naturally should be the one who is declared. But should La Liga have a Champion this season?


Mar 2, 2020


Barcelona fans all could cry about all those missed chances, but the bottomline is Real Madrid was the better side and emerged as a deserving winner.




In the end, every Barcelona fans would agree that Real Madrid deserved to be the winner in last night's Clasico. It all came down to who wanted it more and 'Los Blancos' clearly fought for it. Barcelona, on the other hand, did well at times but there was no intensity and hunger. That's criminal at this level.


The match will not cover Setién in great light considering the tactics on display. He kept on making the same mistakes in a week which was dubbed extremely crucial for Barcelona's ambitions. And let's be honest, he bottled it.
