Although the FC Barcelona has seen a bit better that the past season thanks to the structural changes promoted by Ronald Koeman, the Dutch technician load with some stains in his first season to the control of the club, specifically in the most important meetings.

His elder baza to continue to the control of the bench would be the traced back in the Glass of the King in the semifinals in front of the Seville that allowed to the Barcelona finish with the drought of titles that presented from the past season. However, this could not be sufficient for the fans.

The Barça fell by 1-4 in the Camp Nou after a brilliant performance of Kylian Mbappé by a PSG that did not miss to Neymar, the one who had lesionado in a previous commitment to the eliminatory in front of his ancient team. The Catalans showed a better image in the turn, but the tie would not be sufficient. It does not be necessary to forget that, already in the phase of groups, the Juventus goleó to the Barça in the Camp Nou (0-3) and snatched him the first place of the group in the last day of the liguilla, something also unforgivable.

In LaLiga all seemed very directed, since the invicto in the tournament had extended from the start of the year. However, it would not take in arriving the first trip with a tie in front of the Cádiz and the back defeats against the Real Madrid in the Classical, jointing the one of the first and the second turn. To this adds the inexplicable defeat in front of the Granada and the tie without goals in front of the Athletic , that had to the Barça of Koeman depending on other results. The tie of this Tuesday in the Ciutat of València has been the drop that satisfies the glass... And Koeman hangs of a thread.
