On Wednesday March 8, Barcelona fans and football fans alike witnessed one of the greatest sporting comebacks ever seen. A comeback against a team, despite their tendency to bottle big European nights, who are definitely considered Champions League heavyweights, Paris Saint-German. Coming back against the Parisians at the Camp Nou always felt far fetched, but never impossible. The French side, who have regularly showed their weaknesses in big moments in Europe, seemed very vulnerable from kick-off in the second leg in Catalonia. Tonight we saw that Juventus are no Paris Saint-German.
Barcelona taking on Sevilla at the Camp Nou is a game that, on paper, seemed like it could be massively decisive in the race for the La Liga title as a potential slip up for Luis Enrique’s men. It is understandable that this match-up against Jorge Sampaoli’s side threw up some question marks when looking at the final stages of the league campaign, but on current form and looking at the history of the fixture, Barça winning seemed very likely. And the blaugrana showed it.
Barcelona B endured another frustrating affair in Segunda B Group III on Sunday as they took the short trip to the home of CE Sabadell, Nova Creu Alta, where they recorded their sixth draw of the season.
After such an incredible comeback, it is very hard for a single person to describe what it meant and what it felt like. So it seems like the best thing to do is curate all of the videos, tweets, images and everything in between to really get a feeling of what this all means.
Barcelona B had a frustrating time on Saturday afternoon as they just about salvaged a point in front of 2,187 at the Miniestadi against an Atlético Levante side who are fighting to survive in Segunda B Group III.
Gerard López’s Barcelona B side looked to their front three on Saturday as they overcame the relatively routine task of earning three points at home to a Gavà side who, despite being in the bottom four, won their last two matches at home to Levante B and Cornellà.
It’s difficult to put into words the 90 minutes of football I have just watched. Going into any big match Barcelona almost always seem to find another gear, create a bit of magic and come away with a good result, even when they aren’t at their best. Tonight’s game was dreadful. It’s hard to describe it in more detail than that.
Travelling to the small Basque city of Eibar is always a spectacle for Barcelona. Seeing Barça’s stars taking to the field at the hostile atmosphere of the Ipurua is an interesting sight, and the team of superstars are always expected to roll the little team over, but Eibar’s quick growth into La Liga battlers has made sure that they are anything but pushovers.
This week English media outlet Sky Sports have claimed that La Masia graduate Adama Traoré is on the radar of Antonio Conte’s Premier League leading Chelsea side. This is just another possible twist in the career of the winger who seemed to be on the fringes of the Barcelona first team when Tata Martino was coach back in the 13/14 season.
