Barcelona has gained the final two La Liga titles however there's nonetheless a way that the group might still do higher especially wanting at their poor performances in the Champions League towards Roma in the second leg 2017/2018 and Liverpool 2018/2019.
This season, it seems to have develop into worse. In the early levels of this season, Lionel Messi was injured and the results have been combined. Lionel Messis’s return to fitness appeared to regular the ship. The development has just lately continued; even when Barcelona win, they don't do it convincingly. The truth for Barcelona right now's this: When Lionel Messi doesn't play nicely, Barcelona does not play properly. The plan is principally to offer the little magician the ball and hope for the perfect. That is Plan A. And Plan B. And Plan C. That is the only plan. This has been Ernesto Valverde’s major failing.& But is it all his fault?
After Neymar signed for Paris St Germain in 2017 for a world-record payment, it was a bit of a shock to the soccer world because it appeared like all was properly in Barcelona, the Messi- Neymar- Suarez triumvirate was one of the best on the earth and Neymar appeared just like the inheritor obvious to Lionel Messi. Since then, Barcelona signed Ousmane Dembele for a huge sum of cash, a participant that solely had one full season underneath his belt-& he has gone on to miss one-third of Barcelona video games since he signed due to damage, poor professionalism and dangerous type. Shortly after, they signed Phillipe Coutinho, a participant who's now on loan in Bayern Munich. This season, Antoine Griezmann was signed, a participant whose greatest place is Lionel Messis’s. This now signifies that Barcelona had spent north of 300m to seek out Neymar’s alternative, who would then be the heir to Lionel Messi. It has been an embarrassing search up to now. Unfortunately, the search must continue – it has also been reported that Barcelona tried to signal Neymar once more within the summer time.

Is there another means that Barcelona can play and get the perfect out of the players and finally take on some more duty and progressively shed Messi of his? Solely time would tell. The sport towards an out of types Atletico Madrid can be the perfect time to implement this plan.
