FC Barcelona won 3-0 against RC Celta de Vigo in their last match (Image credits: Octavio Passos/Getty Images) Barça host Celta de Vigo at Camp Nou tomorrow, in what will be the last home game of this season for the Blaugranas. I hate to admit it, but Barça’s away form has been far superior to their home games throughout the La Liga campaign, where they’ve dropped endless points with silly mistakes majorly at the back this season. The official squad for the game hasn’t been announced yet but with major issues in the defence & midfield especially after Barça’s last match, it would be interesting to see how Koeman lines up the starting XI tomorrow. I personally feel he should opt for
Barça won 1-0 over Levante UD after a late Lionel Messi goal in the final minutes of the game (Image credits: Reuters/Albert Gea) Barça faces Levante UD tonight in an away fixture at the Ciutat de València stadium with just three more games remaining to decide their title’s fate in the coming weeks. FC Barcelona drew against Atlético Madrid (losing those crucial 2 points), in what was touted to be a title-defining fixture last weekend. But after their arch-rivals Madrid followed a similar result against Sevilla drawing 2-2 at the Alfredo De Stefano the very next day, the title race again looks intact for these three teams which will now move ahead into the final phase of the La Liga campaign. Now, practically,
Barça struggled to secure a win against Atlético Madrid, losing 1-0 in their last meeting (Image courtesy: FC Barcelona) FC Barcelona will host Atlético Madrid at the Camp Now today, which undoubtedly has to be the most important fixture for both the sides. A win tonight can help Barça clench those three points & move top at the summit of the La Liga Points table & keep the title race running in close proximity. Koeman has done a commendable job in managing the Catalans, in helping them regain their composure back from a hopeless start to their La Liga campaign last year. Unfortunately, following the 2 match-ban he had received in the Granada match two weeks back, the dutch manager won’t be
Barça drew 2-2 against Valencia in their last match (Image credits: Lluis Gene/Getty Images) FC Barcelona faces Valencia CF at the Mestalla Stadium on Sunday, tonight, in what seems to be a "must-win" fixture for the Catalans after their tragic, yet unnecessary 2-1 loss to Granada, in La Liga this week. The disappointment against Granada was brutal not just for us cules, but it also left a devastating effect on the players mentally to see through the campaign ahead. Since then, Real & Atlético Madrid have both pounced back securing their three points respectively which now deems tonight’s Valencia fixture to be extremely crucial for Barça if they want to thrive in the title race ahead. Koeman’s 23-man squad has travelled to Mestalla
FC Barcelona with a resounding 4-0 victory over Villarreal in September 2020 (Image credits: David Ramos/ Getty Images) FC Barcelona play Villarreal away at the Estadio de la Cerámica on a Sunday afternoon today. An important fixture which can help Barça take a leap of three points ahead of the whites if they manage to secure wins in both their next two games. Having said that, the road to victory isn’t going to be that easy considering that Barça has to win all their upcoming 7 fixtures with Atlético Madrid & Villarreal clearly the important ones. Koeman has announced a 22 man squad with Dembélé back from his pelvis injury which had kept him absent in an astounding win against Getafe FC

Habló con los medios sobre el significado de los partidos restantes, su continuidad, la aspiración al título, entre otras cosas.

Ellos juegan un muy buen fútbol con jugadores de buena calidad y están progresando para ser un equipo poderoso en Europa. Hasta el jueves, ellos tuvieron tiempo de preparar para se juego contra el Arsenal. Va a ser un partido entretenido mañana." Sobre el carácter del equipo: "Sabemos que nos quedan siete partidos y para nosotros, como para los
Athletico Bilbao defeated Barca 1-0 in injury time in Copa Del Rey this season (Image credits: FC Barcelona) An important game for FC Barcelona, which can help them clinch their very first title of this season if they are capable enough to beat an adamant Athletic Bilbao at in the Copa Del Rey final tonight. Koeman has announced a 26 man squad for the fixture which also includes the likes of Ansu Fati & Netó who have travelled to Sevilla despite injuries. Piqué who was on his road to recovery lately has been given a green signal by the dutch manager himself & might as well start the game for Blaugrana tonight. The rest of the starting XI pretty much remains the
