After Barcelona’s goalless draw against Atletico Madrid on Saturday – a result that does not serve both parties and is in the interest of Real Madrid – it appears that the League has escaped from the hands of Barca.
Although the team did not lose its chances of winning the Spanish championship, it had more than one opportunity to deal a knockout blow to its rivals in LaLiga, but he does not know how to do so.
And now, with 3 matches remaining, he doesn’t seem to have much hope of being crowned champion of Spain.
The title is now in the hands of Real Madrid and then Atletico Madrid, but why did Barcelona put itself in this embarrassing situation? The answer is in the following points:
A catastrophic outing phase
At this stage, Barca performed disastrously, losing about 20 points, and now it is paying the price for its sudden missteps against teams like Getafe, Kadish and Eibar.
Big teams are unbeaten
Barcelona this season was content to outdo the smaller teams, and could not defeat its direct rivals for the title, as it lost back and forth to Real Madrid and was able to win only one point from the two confrontations Atletico.
The Granada Trauma
Two or three weeks ago, it was enough for Barcelona to defeat Granada to place the fate of the League in his hands, but he lost to the Andalusian team at the “Camp Nou”, and from that moment on his chances of winning the LaLiga title began to decline.
During the season, the Barca players committed many mistakes that cost them many goals at sensitive times, and thus contributed to the team’s arrival at this stage.
No two people disagree that Barcelona misses the “9” top scorer, and has not signed a striker to replace Luis Suarez. French Antoine Griezmann and Argentine Lionel Messi have provided good levels this season, but they have failed to fill this great void.
Loss of tools
Barca coach Ronald Koeman – who has recently been held responsible for the team’s decline and whose management of matches is described as bad – does not have the tools to change the outcome of matches due to the lack of effective substitutes; The former Dutch star wants to dispense with a long list of players, such as the Spaniard Verbo Junior, the Bosnian Miralem Pjanic and the Spaniard Ricky Puig.
