While Xavi’s FC Barcelona are currently on the top of La Liga following Real Madrid’s draw against CA Osasuna, while the Blaugrana are currently suffering in the UEFA Champions League. To make things worse, they’re hanging on the edge of the UEFA Europa League.
After defeating Viktoria Plzeň in the opening matchday, FC Barcelona started running on an uneven platform. They suffered two consecutive defeats from Inter Milan and Bayern Munich.
And when Xavi’s men faced Inter Milan again on matchday four, they played a 6-goal thriller draw. Ousmane Dembele broke the deadlock with the help of a through ball from Sergi Roberto.
But the second half was the exact opposite of the first. In the super event full second half, we saw 5 goals, especially in the last 15 minutes of the match 3 goals were scored.
Robert Lewandowski’s brace in the dying minutes ensured that both teams go home with a point. While Gerard Pique’s defensive performance left a huge question mark on his place in the playing XI.
Gerard Pique’s clueless defending was the reason why Nicolo Barella capitalised on the opportunity of scoring. The other goals for Inter Milan came from Lautaro Martinez and Robin Gosens.
And FC Barcelona’s fate is now utterly dependent on Inter Milan’s fixture against Viktoria Plzeň. If San Siro managed to win against Viktoria Plzeň, the Blaugrana’s UEFA Champions League journey will end up in UEFA Europa League for the second consecutive season.
What does Sergio Busquets have to say about FC Barcelona and El Clasico?
Sergio Busquets talked about the match. He said “It’s a disappointment. It was a difficult group but we had to aspire to more after all of the signings that have been made. It is not mathematical(ly done) but it is very difficult.”
“Their first goal gave them a boost and took something out of us and we went trailing behind. It feels like when they score a goal it is chaos. It’s clear that this could affect us ahead of El Clasico. We have to lift ourselves.” Sergio Busquets added.
