Calendar of FC Barcelona

A 15 August 2018, Leo Messi promised in front of the Camp Nou that the FC Barcelona would bring the Champions League next summer. "We promise that we will do all the possible so that this so beautiful glass and so wished by all go back to be here", said the Barcelona captain. Two years and two months after these words, alas the League of Champions follows very far of the stadium culé.

The Barça has fracasado in the maximum continental tournament so much in 2019 as in 2020, the same that did before in 2018, 2017 and 2016. The defeat of the past course, besides, went the hardest of all and the worst of the history of the club in the Champions. The 2-8 of the Bayern of Munich does some months still hurts and the barcelonistas have to forget it what before, since this Tuesday begins a new European adventure.

Messi, a teacher in Champions League

The Barcelona debuted this Tuesday in League of Champions against the Ferencvaros (5-1) in which it could be the last opportunity of Messi to carry to the Camp Nou "this so beautiful glass and so wished". The '10' capitaneará to the culés a year more in which it could be his last campaign in the club. The rosarino finishes agreement in 2021, has not renewed and unless it convince him the new president, seems that it could decide not to do it to go free next summer.

Nevertheless, for the moment this possibility still remains very far and the only that matters right now is that the Barça try to break his curse in Europe. For this, lyou blaugrana go to need the best version of Leo that it has not begun the course to his best level. The six times Balloon of Gold only carries, after the party in front of the Hungarian, two goals in five parties contested of League and Champions, and in addition to penalti. It has given also three assistances, but still like this are insufficient numbers for the level of the international albiceleste.

The attacker has to wake up what before and already has begun to do it this Tuesday in the Camp Nou. The Ferencvaros was, a priori, an accessible rival and ideal for the resurgir of the best Messi, by what all the ingredients invited to think that it could be the party of the '10'. Besides, the Real Madrid expects the Saturday, by what the Argentinian wanted to arrive with the sharp teeth to confront to the whites. Like this it has been.

Messi, uncomfortable as 'false 9'

'The Flea' is trying to adapt to the new position of 'false 9' that has given him Ronald Koeman this course. It gives the feeling that the fault of a leading pure centre does not benefit him, since it is having to to go out a lot of the zone ofgoal , something that prejudices him to level goleador. Nevertheless, the technician trusts that it finish taking out his best version.
