Two senior Barcelona players, Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique appear to be pessimistic about the chances of champions this season after only being able to draw in yesterday’s match against Sevilla.
Saturday (6/20) early morning hrs yesterday, Barcelona visited the headquarters of Sevilla to play the 30th Jornada of the Spanish La Liga. On paper, the Catalan giants are more favored to win, but in reality Messi et al only brought home one point from a goalless draw.
One point is not enough for Barcelona to maintain its position at the top of the Spanish La Liga standings. Because the troops Zinedine Zidane won the tripoin in the match against Real Sociedad.
Defender Gerard Pique is not sure Real Madrid will lose points for the rest of the season, so he is very pessimistic about the chances of winning the La Liga title.
“I think it will be very difficult for us to win the league. We will do everything to become champions. But I don’t think Real Madrid will lose a lot of points until the end of the season, “Pique was quoted as saying Marca.
The same thing was expressed by captain Lionel Messi, even he was pessimistic by how to play like this Barcelona could become champions in other events, such as the European Champions League.
“I, based on the fact that I am lucky to be able to play in the Champions League every year, and I know that we cannot possibly win it by the way we play today,” said Lionel Messi some time ago.
Marca’s journalist, Luis F Rojo, had previously been able to predict the slip of Barcelona in the rest of the 2019/20 season. Because, in the previous two matches Quique Setien’s troops were considered to be showing no progress in performance.
“Everyone expects change in the team because they have more time to train together, improve their play and better understand Quique Setien’s wishes,”
“The first two matches of Barcelona appear to have won six of the six points, but do not show the best game,” wrote Luis F. Rojo in Marca.
But, Barcelona opportunities have not been closed. Their points are the same as for Real Madrid, and there are still 8 matches left at the moment.
