The Catalans 2:0 lost against Sevilla in the “Copa de Rey” first-leg is just another headache of the side who have been winning all trophies some years ago.
A goal from their former player Rakitic pushed their hope of winning a trophy this season 2020/21 a step back. Which would have an impact on Lionel Messi’s decision of staying at the club.
Thou there have been some rumous in the media that the club is persuing him with a huge money contract to force him stay at the club.
Barcelona FC has been tauted as one of the most easily to beat at any final game of a cup competition.
Athletic Club recently beat them 3:2 to win the Spanish super cup which saw Messi being sent-off as the 1st time in his club football career and the 3rd in his entire career.
Some soccer pundits and critics argue that the Catalans problem is Messi’s problem. So far as the team is build around him and due to aging he isn’t performing as he use to do some decades ago therefore the team will have a problem.
And untilil they find a replacement for him and do a rebuilding Barcelona is going to be an awful team to watch and to win a trophy.
