Match Review: FC Barcelona 6-0 Granada CF

Match Review: FC Barcelona 6-0 Granada CF

It’s been a very long time since culés last enjoyed a home match so much. The feelings we had today can only be found years back, in those emphatic wins of the Guardiola era, like the 8-0 thrashing of Osasuna in 2011. Barça not only managed to put six past a helpless Granada, but showed that the mentality in place will carry the team forward. Just three days after failing to register a single shot on target against Málaga, Luis Enrique’s men came out hungrier, more determined and more passionate to put on their best showing of the season to date. That’s what we want our team to be like. Read more…

Match Review: Málaga CF 0-0 FC Barcelona

Match Review: Málaga CF 0-0 FC Barcelona

Let’s be clear: No detail about the match at La Rosaleda yesterday bears recapping. Nor is there any point to picking apart the performances of individual players – by and large, Barça’s front six were terrible, and Málaga’s defenders were excellent. Málaga put on the performance of a lifetime, with Roberto Rosales and Sergio Sánchez particularly deserving of praise, while Barça’s players failed at the most basic levels. Passes were misplaced, players were constantly dispossessed, and the overall tempo of the game was sluggish and uninspired. None of which bears analysis – these games happen. The more interesting question is what Luis Enrique does in the face of such challenges.

Luis Enrique: “The first step is to beat Málaga”

Match Review: Levante UD 0-5 FC Barcelona

Match Review: Levante UD 0-5 FC Barcelona

Ten minutes into the game, it was a familiar scene. Barcelona were away from home on a shoddy pitch, patiently working the ball back and forth as they tried to break down the two banks of five men defending deep in front of the opposition goal. Then it happened – a stray pass in midfield fell to Levante, who broke quickly into the spaces left behind the fullbacks. Down Barcelona’s left, evading a desperate challenge from the exposed centre-back, then crossing to the unmarked man on the opposite flank. An easy goal – Barcelona have seen it too many times over the past two seasons.

Match Preview: Levante UD – FC Barcelona

Match Preview: Levante UD – FC Barcelona

In their second away game of the season, FC Barcelona will travel to Valencia to face Levante UD as they aim to keep the momentum going. Barcelona currently sit on top of the league, and a win today would increase the gap between Luis Enrique’s men and Atlético Madrid to 4 points, and will retain the 6-point gap between them and Real Madrid. The team will be looking for a fifth consecutive win in all competitions, and hopefully a fifth consecutive clean sheet.

Neymar: “I hope this can be my year”

Neymar: “I hope this can be my year”

After last night’s game against Athletic Club, FC Barcelona’s Brazilian brace-scorer Neymar (22) spoke with the press about his combination play with teammate Lionel Messi, the team’s performance and a great effort by their Basque opponents. Neymay lauded the provider of his goals by saying that, “Messi is the best in the world, a ‘crack. I am getting better with him. We are recovering as a team and improving. I came back from the travelling a little tired, it was a long journey.”

Match Review: FC Barcelona 2-0 Athletic Club

Up until the 79th minute, this was probably one of the most frustrating, mentally exhausting FC Barcelona matches. Not because the performance was disappointing or ‘boring’  but because everything was being executed perfectly, everything but the final decisive touch. Lionel Messi managed to find Luis Enrique’s super sub, Neymar Jr., twice to secure another late win against the stubborn Lions. Three games, three wins, and three clean sheets. I’m happy.

Luis Enrique: “Everything about Athletic worries me”

Luis Enrique: “Everything about Athletic worries me”

Luis Enrique spoke very fondly of FC Barcelona’s La Liga opponent, Athletic Club Bilbao, following the end of the international break. “Everything about Athletic worries me. They’ve been playing well for several seasons. They’re the best team at creating attacking pressure. It’s always very motivational to be able to play Athletic,” he said. Luis Enrique will not be expecting Athletic to sit at the back, but to attack aggressively and provide a real test for the defenders. Continue reading for more.

Barcelona play host to Athletic Club this weekend, and Luis Enrique will be looking to maintain his 100% Liga record in the third match of the league season, and the second at the Camp Nou. Athletic Club have not managed a win in Barcelona since the 2001-02 season, but certainly Ernesto Valverde’s team has enough quality to hurt Barça if the Blaugranas lose focus at any point.
