Barça lost on the lawn of Atlético Madrid. The Blaugranas are tenth in La Liga with 11 small points after eight matches. Their worst start to the season since 1991.
This Sunday evening, everyone was waiting for Ronald Koeman’s FC Barcelona to show what he is capable of. But this season, the Madrid clubs are not really successful for him. On October 24, the Blaugranas lost three goals to one against Real at Camp Nou and yesterday they faced Atlético Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano and came away with zero points.
At the very end of the first period, Correa sent Carrasco into orbit. The Belgian saw Ter Stegen arrive, nearly 45 meters from his goals, come out a bit anyhow, erased him, before sending the leather into the empty goal (45th +3). It will be the only goal of the meeting and another defeat for Barça, which has also made its worst start to the season since 1991. And to think that the problems were solved …
Remember Johan Cruyff
At the moment, Barça are tenth in the Spanish standings with eleven small units (three wins, two draws and three losses) nine points behind Real Sociedad, who will play this Sunday in Cadiz and who will then have two more games played. . However, during this famous year 1991, the end was happier than the beginnings. And that is perhaps why we have to wait until the end of the ball to pay the musicians.
So nearly 30 years ago, Barça was coached by a certain Johan Cruyff and had 11 points after eight days. During this season, they still finished champions of Spain and even better, they won the Champions Clubs Cup (C1) on a goal from… Ronald Koeman, the current coach. After a simply awful summer and controversy in all directions, Barça, during this nightmarish Saturday night from every point of view, may have experienced the culmination of its misfortunes. Everything comes at the right time to who knows how to wait must say to himself Ronald Koeman.
