At the end of the day, both teams stay as the greatest and essential in La Liga, and as always, a match between both essentially stops the football world.
Antoine Griezmann was benched, Luis Suarez was sold to Atletico Madrid, so its safe to state that Barcelona is a mess right now.
Saturday, October 24th, 2020 was an unfortunate date for many, if not all Barcelona fans from all over the world. Spanish El Clasico occurred at Camp Nou, and not just did the team lose significantly to their archrival Real Madrid, but this might really well have been Lionel Messis last Clasico in your home. The saddest part being that there were no fans to even say bye-bye.
Its been all drama for Barcelona, as Messi really wished to go and leave the group sign up with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. Bartomeus legal group got to work and did not allow that to take place, and the Argentinian superstar needed to stay, at least for this season. The group sacked Quique Setien and brought Ronald Koeman as head coach,
Donetsk in Champions League, both right prior to El Clasico, and things got quite extreme throughout those days, with people even requesting for the French coach to leave the team.
The start of the 2020-2021 La Liga season has not been easy for either of the 2 biggest Spanish teams of perpetuity.
On Real Madrids side, the team got to top place in the table after taking the 3 points from Camp Nou, however Atletico Madrid is right there setting up an excellent fight. Nevertheless, Zidanes team lost to Cadiz in La Liga and to Shakhtar
After the difficult loss in El Clasico, Barcelona sits 12th in the leagues table, with just 7 points in 5 matches, something were just not used to seeing.
Its probably time for Messi to go elsewhere
There is a great deal of season to be played still, were just starting, with just 5 out of 38 video games played up until now for Barcelona, however it could be an actually -actually- long season for this group, if things dont improve between Messi and the organization itself. For the good of football in general, lets hope it does, which we can see a brilliant and fantastic last season for him in the group that made him a legend.
He does not look the very same on the field, he was lost versus Real Madrid, hes not leading the team as he should, he does not have his buddies anymore, Neymar, Suarez, Xavi or Iniesta, and if we look at it carefully, its maybe just time for him to begin making a new strategy.
Returning to the Messi concern, as we stated, he was required to remain, and on top of that, Koeman was all over him after the groups loss to Getafe just a few days ago, questioning his strength and commitment.
It was sad to see the very first Clasico ever with no fans on the stands, however its even sadder to believe that this may have been Messis last one in your home, not just for the loss or the lack of fans, but because of the situations.
Spanish El Clasico took location at Camp Nou, and not only did the team lose drastically to their archrival Real Madrid, but this might very well have actually been Lionel Messis last Clasico at house. Its been all drama for Barcelona, as Messi really desired to leave the group and go sign up with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. Bartomeus legal team got to work and did not permit that to happen, and the Argentinian super star had to stay, at least for this season.
