The reigning champions have been eliminated from the Copa Del Rey and it’s not funny.
Barcelona lost the Spanish Supper Cup earlier this month and the club has also failed to advance to the next round of the Copa Del Rey competition.
Barcelona Hunted By Bad Luck Last Night
Athletic Bibao showed more desire to win the game last night and everything goes as planned for the hosts. Athletic Bibao took the lead before 5 minutes of the game and I think that the Barcelona defenders were poor.
Xavi Hernandez’s men have failed to turn things around in the League cup and also in the La Liga. Things are currently complicated in the team and I think that they lack confidence. Most of their players are back from injury, but nothing changed.
All these players have what it takes to win the La Liga or the Copa Del Rey trophy, but I think that the confidence is not there. They are not together as a team and Xavi Hernandez still has a lot of work to do.
Ansu Fati Got Injured Again
We all know that Ansu Fati is regarded as one of the future Ballon D’Or winner, but can he do this with this kind of situation? Ansu Fati was out for almost 11 months and he returned back before the club parted ways with Koeman.
After he made his return under Ronald Koeman, he scored a goal on his return, but after a few matches, he went back to injury and that felt so bad.
The Barcelona winger couldn’t hold his tears as he came off in the second half against Athletic Bibao. The fans hope to see him back on the pitch soon, but the pressure on him right now is too much and I think that the club is responsible for that.
At first, the Barcelona board gave him the number 10 shirt after the shocked departure of the club legend Lionel Messi. The expectations from the fans are too much. Barcelona could have waited a little bit before making a decision like this.
All eyes are on him and the Spanish winger couldn’t even play up to 15 games this season so far. That’s so bad for him and his family, the kid just wanted to play football, but the injury kept on coming. I believe that he will get over it soon and he will be back to his best.
Pedri Back On The Scoresheet And Ferran Torres Scored His First For FCB
Pedri Gonzalez also returned back from injury after being out for a long time. He returned back on the scoresheet against Athletic Bibao last night, but his goal couldn’t help the team advance to the next round of the tournament.
Ferran Torres gave his all on the pitch last night, the Spanish winger scored his first ever goal for Barcelona against Athletic Bibao. He dribbled pass the defender and he made no mistake as he leveled the game before the first half. It’s a night to remember for him.
