Calendar of FC Barcelona

The led by Ronald Koeman will have this Tuesday, from the 22:00, his fourth opportunity assault the leadership for the first time in what it goes of season. The Barcelona square will confront to a theoretically feasible rival, the Raise, with the aim to carry three points that allow them assault the first position of the classification and presionar even more to the Athletic of Madrid and to the Real Madrid, the others aspiring to the title.

The square blaugrana needs to win all the parties that are missing him and that both opponents suffer like minimum a defeat to carry the most contested championship of the last years, at least in the second half of the season. The difference is so short that all can happen. At present, the culés do not depend on they same, but seeing the path of the three applicants, trust that they leave to escape points in the days that still are missing them.

Nevertheless, the ones of the Barcelona will have to centre in adding the nine points that remain in dispute and not failing under any circumstance because it no longer remains margin of error. The first final will be in the Stadium Ciutat of Valéncia, in front of a Raise that it does not play at all. Koeman Has carried to all the available to finish with a series of two parties without victories that has occurred in the worst possible moment.

The big leader will go back to be Lionel Messi that it already strokes his eighth trophy like the Maximum Goleador of LaLiga Santander, and that will confront to one of his favourite victims. The Argentinian has annotated 23 goals in the 22 duels that has had against the square granota. A perfect opportunity to finish with the curse that pursues to the Barcelona this season.

The "curse of the leadership"

For the moment, it would not be exaggerated to affirm that the Barcelona have left to escape the opportunity to assault the leadership this season. The ones of Koeman have wasted this course the three opportunities that have had to assault the first position. The first occasion was in the classical in front of the Real Madrid in Alfredo gave Stéfano. The defeat gave him oxygen to the ones of Zidane, and allowed them put to bed leaders, whereas the Barça remained relegado again to the third position.

Whereas the others two were much more recent, since they took place in the two last days that have contested the ones of Koeman. Tremendously painful was the defeat in front of the Granada in the Camp Nou. After a 2021 practically spotless, the culés were won in his feudo and lost by third occasion the opportunity to depend on yes same to raise the title this year. It will be missing for seeing if in front of the Raise finally will take advantage of the opportunity or again will leave it escape.
