Barcelona continues to fight because the players went aimlessly
It was another steamy night for Barcelona fans on Saturday night when the Blaugrana crashed in a 2-0 loss to Atlético de Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.
The goals of Thomas Lemar and Luis Suárez left the result beyond any doubt for Mattresses as Diego Simeone’s men finished the weekend tied at 17 points with rivals Real Madrid and Real Sociedad.
The result now sees Barcelona in ninth place in La Liga and tied with Valencia and Real Betis, while already coaching the leading trio by five points despite their match in hand.
And it was sweet poetic justice for Suárez, who was judged excessively to demands at the Camp Nou by Ronald Koeman before the start of last season. Following the Uruguayan’s departure from the Catalan capital, Suárez scored 21 goals in the final league season en route to helping Atléti secure their 11th La Liga title and only their second since the turn of the millennium.
On the contrary, Koeman has not achieved success in La Liga and can only count on a victory in the Copa del Rey last season, while Barcelona’s record in the Champions League with the Dutchman is abysmal; IIncluding a current 5 game winless run dating back to last season..
To make matters worse, it came out today that Barcelona players are said to have been left without direction under Koeman, according to BarcaTimes citing Laia Tudel.
