Feels like end periods, does not it? Not just for civilised society, but also Barcelona Soccer Club. If they really do not liven up quicksmart, they will end a period without the need of a trophy for the initial time because the dim times of 2007-08. Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez are 33, Sergio Busquets turns 32 subsequent month, Quique Setien is a walking P45 and there has been adequate infighting to make Albert Square seem like idyll alone.
They could even now end the period as champions of Spain and Europe, so it is not the end of the earth just nonetheless, but they have an uncomfortably superior see from the precipice. That see will get even much better if they fall short to conquer an Atletico Madrid facet who have been in exceptional type because lockdown.
Barcelona’s geriatricos are two points driving the leaders Authentic Madrid, who perform Getafe on Thursday, with 6 game titles remaining. Their household type has been almost faultless this period, with 15 wins out of 16 in the league. But household advantage ain’t what it utilised to be, and this match is fraught with peril for Barcelona. If this team are heading to appreciate a final dance, a defiant victory tonight would be a superior location ot start off.
Kick off 9pm BST, 10pm CEST.
