Barcelona Football Team produced one of the most balanced and controlled performances of this season to see off a spirited Inter Milan side in the third match of this season's Group stages. Now with this victory, Barcelona have secured nine points from their three matches and that should literally guarantee them a place in next round.


Unless we screw up things dramatically we should be able to top the group from now on. On a tricky night, when everyone was questioning how Barca will handle the absence of Messi; goals from Rafinha and Alba settled the matters. The defeat has not foiled Inter's chances of qualification as the other match in the group ended with a 2-2 draw.

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.

FC Barcelona to face Inter, PSV and Tottenham in Group B of UEFA Champions League 2018-19 #fcbarcelona

FC Barcelona has been paired with English Giants Tottenham Hotspur, Dutch side PSV Eindhoven and Italian Giants Football Club Internazionale Milano in Group B of UEFA Champions League 2018-19 season. For Barcelona this European Campaign would be of paramount important, especially for their manager - I have written earlier about this - It will be all about UEFA Champions League this Season for Barca!. This one of the toughest groups in the Group stage and that means Barca will have enough challenges to fine tune them for the long run. Every Barca fans focus will be on how we perform in each of these away matches; which has been our downfall in last few seasons.

Valverde had to face huge pressure in his first season as Barca coach; but that will be nothing compared to what he will face this time around with special focus on UEFA Champions League.



For many Barca fans, last season felt like an abject failure despite winning two of the most prestigious trophies - the La Liga Title and the Copa del Rey Title. And it was all due to that fateful capitulation at Roma which many believed was a managerial fault at the core. Barca fans have not forgot the tactical disaster Valverde displayed against Roma and a repeat of same at any stage will definitely get him kicked out of the Club.


To an extent, it is quite unfair to consider last season as a failure; especially considering where we started. We were support to die down as a club as per many pundits; Real Madrid were supposed to win everything and we were supposed to be mere spectators. Valverde did well to win us the double and raise the expectation for this season. As per Voetbal Wedden, FC Barcelona has the highest odds of retaining their title than any other team in Europe.

Against all odds Roma pulled off the seemingly impossible task by knocking out FC Barcelona with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over the visitors at home.




For the 3rd Season in succession, FC Barcelona, favourites to win the Champions League with Bet365, was knocked out of the Quarter-Final stage in UEFA Champions League. Now that's a seriously dangerous pattern which needs to be addressed soon. All of us believed that Barcelona had the tie rapped up after the 4-1 victory at the Camp Nou.


But a combination of complacency and tactical mistakes from the Manager resulted in Barca being at the receiving end of a wonderful come back once again at this stage of the tournament. Now they may have to once again watch from sidelines their biggest rivals (who despite the hiccup against Juventus) script another glorious chapter in European Football.

FC barcelona to face Roma in UCL QF

FC Barcelona is drawn to face AS Roma in the Quarter Finals of the UEFA Champions league 2017-18 season. Looking at all the possibilities possible, we got the easiest draw even though the fact that we play the second leg away from home could make this tie tricky. The first leg will be played on the 3rd of April at the Camp Nou and we will have the second leg a week after in Italy.

Lionel Messi scored two goals and created the other one in a 3-0 demolition of Chelsea securing a record 11th Consecutive Quarter Final appearance in UEFA Champions League.

Lionel Messi, once again was the difference maker for Barca in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League 2017-18 Pre-Quarter Knockout tie. The little Argentinian scored two goals and created the other one in a very efficient 3-0 victory against Chelsea. In the process he became the second player in UEFA Champions League history to score 100 goals. The 3-0 scoreline may give a picture of the match being too comfortable; but this match was like the Atletico match where we were made to suffer; may be a lot more than Atletico. But like against Atletico, we clearly shut down Chelsea from making anything much of the game.

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, 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.

This season has been so far pretty good for Lionel Messi. He has been ticking away some of his unchecked items from his list since the start of the season. The best match of Barca so far this season has been the victory against Juventus. Messi never scored against Buffon in his career and he ticked away that. To the build up of last night's encounter against Chelsea, a lot of people were asking the sensational question 'Will Messi Score against Chelsea?' Some times it gets to the point of being absolutely ridiculous, where some people and pundits will hold it against him every time he puts in a good performance. So finally he got that box also ticked out; he scored the very important away goal which equalized the scoreline for Barca and also made good of not so efficient performance.

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 to face Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League 2017-18 Round of 16 Knockout Stage to carry on with the great rivalry

Barcelona Futbol Club will be facing English side Chelsea in this season's Round of 16 Knockout round. The first leg will he held at Stamford Bridge on the 21st of February 2018 and the return leg will be on March 3rd 2018 at the Camp Nou. For some reason Barca keep on getting tough opponents in this stage - last year it was PSG, before that Arsenal, before that twice Manchester City, before that AC Milan and so on. One have to seriously ponder whether it's just Bad Luck or whether it's something UEFA do! Especially considering that some big teams keep on getrting smaller oppositions till they reach at least semi-finals. Regardless of all that we need to get ready for two nights of very challenging football. Funny enough in my preview to UEFA Champions League Draw, I mentioned two teams in the best to avoid category; we got one from that only.

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.Walt Disney

With last night's round of matches, this season's Champions League Group stage has come to a conclusion and we now clearly knows who all moves from Group Stage to Knockout Stage. The teams apart from FC Barcelona which have qualified for the knock out stages are Manchester United, FC Basel, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Roma, Chelsea, Juventus, Liverpool, Sevilla, Manchester City, Shaktar Donetsk, Besiktas, FC Porto, Totenham and Real Madrid. Since we cannot play teams from the league we will be avoiding Real Madrid and Sevilla both who finished second in their groups. Which leaves five opponents we could face - FC Basel, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Shaktar and Porto.
