It could have been yet another game that FC Barcelona team would be doomed to lose no matter how much the players held possession or showed a class performance. And how disappointing it would be to concede a goal, a simple one, after having held possession for almost twenty minutes never ceasing to create more and more chances on the opponent’s goal!

According to Portuguese newspaper Diario de Noticias, Barcelona coach Josep Guardiola would be ready to strenghten Barcelona’s back line by bidding for Benfica defender David Luiz (23).
