In summer, “Barcelona” was led by a new coach, Ernesto Valverde, under whose guidance the team showed a record winning series in La Liga and an impressive game in the Spanish Cup.
Besides the coach, in summer the Catalans were left by one of the main football stars, Neymar, who joined “PSG” for record €222 million. By the way, the management didn’t set aside money for the future and bought new players. So, the team was joined by:
Many people were quite skeptical about Valverde, especially after the failure in the Spanish Cup but the coach reached out to his players that have been never failed in the current season of La Liga.
FC «Barcelona» traditionally pleases its fans with an attacking game and impressive attacks. The matches where the Catalans take part are a real holiday for fans, no matter what club they support. Livescore today traditionally doesn’t leave anyone indifferent, as the “blue-and-crimson” regularly beat their rivals in La Liga, as well as in the international field.
However, the team hasn’t been achieved a success for several seasons. After the triumph in 2015, the Catalans always fail at the stage of the Final 8 beaten by weaker teams. So, this year, the club was sensationally beaten by “Roma” that has not been expected to “survive” to this stage of the championship. This failure seems even more shocking, as the Catalans won with a confident score of 4-1 in the Camp Nou. Some analysts were 99% sure that the Romans wouldn’t enter the next stage.
After leaving the Champions League, the club tries to rehabilitate itself at domestic Spanish competitions. The team of Valverde is just a step away from the Champion title. They have also entered the National Cup Final. The Golden Double will be quite a good present for all fans of the club despite the fact that they are waiting for great results in the international field, especially against the triumphal success of “Real” that regularly takes the main club trophy of the Old World. In summer, the team was left by some leaders who had been key players when Guardiola was heading the team. Vets start playing at other championships or just hide their boots, so the team will see significant squad changes and “Barcelona” will enter the transfer market again.
