Welcome back to TalkBarca. Our topic for today is regarding the winning streak of FC Barcelona in the Champions League this season. FC Barcelona faced Ferencvaros last night and won with 0-3. Barca was playing away from home and was playing once again without Lionel Messi. Yet, they managed to win the game with a good score margin. Ronald Koemann’s men are in fine form now considering that they won previously against Osasuna with a 4 goal lead and against Dynamo Kyiv with a similar 4 goal lead.
FC Barcelona has conceded only 2 goals in Champions League so far this season and has scored 13 goals. What are your predictions for FC Barcelona in the Champions League this season?
FC BARCELONA BECOMES THE ONLY TEAM TO WIN ALL GAMES IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE THIS SEASON
Bayern Munich and Machester City were also maintaining their perfect winning record in the Champions League this season. However, both teams fell short against their opponents this week and drew their respective games. This has made FC Barcelona the only team in the Champions League this season to win all games. FC Barcelona already confirmed its qualification to the Round of 16 of this competition before the encounter against Ferencvaros. However, now they have also confirmed to qualify further as the group winners. Juventus would have to beat Barca by a very big margin in order to gain the top spot.
This is the 19th time in history that Barcelona is going to advance as group winners. Barcelona is certainly creating a great momentum. However, the win against Dynamo Kyiv or Ferencvaros does not ultimately mean that FC Barcelona is going to do big in the Champions League this season. Barcelona is bottling every year back to back in the Champions League knockout stages. Therefore, the real test of the team is going to be against teams such as Liverpool, Atletico Madrid or Bayern Munich. Juventus is up next against FC Barcelona in the Champions League and they are not going to come easy this time around. Last time, Juventus faced FC Barcelona with a lot of their man players missing the clash including Cristiano Ronaldo. However, things are going to be different this time around. Juve is going to come for revenge and they are not going to come easy at FC Barcelona.
FC Barcelona is struggling in the La Liga competition. However, its performances in the Champions League have been very phenomenal up till now. Arch rivals, Real Madrid are currently struggling in the Champions League. Zidane’s men lost their previous CL encounter against Shakhtar Not only the previous game, but Shakhtar was able to win against Real Madrid in both group stage games they played against each other. With that being said, FC Barcelona is doing far better than what Real Madrid is doing at the moment. However, it is just not about FC Barcelona against Real Madrid. It is about FC Barcelona against every other team playing in the Champions League competition.
Barcelona seems to be getting back on the right track. Antoine Griezmann and Dembele are finding their form again. Furthermore, Barcelona’s game in the midfield is getting stronger as every game passes. The final game of the group stages in the Champions League is going to be played against FC Barcelona and Juventus on 9th December. FC Barcelona is going to host the game at the Camp Nou where they are always the favorites to win. However, there is a lot to improve and work on before that game. Can FC Barcelona beat Juventus next and maintain its winning record in the Champions League?
