Barcelona Could Collapse After Champions League Failure Against Atletico Madrid | Bleacher Report

So, that’s a little dramatic. A lot has been said since Barcelona’s loss to Atletico. A lot.

I think a lot of fans etc, myself included, expected them to turn it on when necessary even with the hiccups against Real Madrid and Real Sociedad. Villarreal was definitely a sign of things to come and the international break didn’t help. Still, it was a poor performance from the side and the season does lose a little excitement getting knocked out at this stage of the Champions League. Why the decision was made to have Messi come more central again is a mystery and that, as well as rotation etc is down to Luis Enrique’s decision-making. Still, a double this season is nothing to be scoffed and a win against Valencia is a good time to start.
