With 4 defeats in 15 league games, 6 points from the Champions League positions, which Atlético de Madrid now marks, and 16 points from the leader, Real Madrid, although with a more contested match by the Whites, the options for the Barça team to reengage with the fight for the title, if they still exist, and the most earthly ones, to end up qualifying for the next edition of the maximum continental competition, go through reacting immediately and not letting many more points escape in the coming days.
And the azulgranas, what this Wednesday they are playing being in the knockout stages of the Champions League nothing more and nothing less than in Munich against Bayern, they will have to face this forced reaction away from the Camp Nou, given that of the next five games in LaLiga, four are away, where Barça has only added a triumph, last week at Villarreal (1-3), thanks to Memphis’ goal in the 88th minute, after Estupiñán’s error, which broke the tie, with also a background as a visitor of 6 points out of 18 possible.
Barça has only won one game away from home in LaLiga, in Villarreal, and adds 6 points out of 18 possible as a visitor
After the ‘final’ in Munich, which together with what happens at Benfica-Dinamo Kiev will decide if Xavi’s men remain in the Champions League or go to the Europa League, the next objective will be to get the three points next Sunday in The Sadar, where Osasuna has not won any of the last three games played. The next day will be at home, against Elche, on Saturday December 18, with the trip to Saudi Arabia in between to play the friendly against Boca Juniors in tribute to Maradona.
The duel against the Elche team will be the last match against their Barça fans in LaLiga in a month. And is that the next three are out. At Sánchez Pizjuán on December 21, a duel corresponding to the postponement of the fourth day. Direct duel with Sevilla, current second classified, which already adds 8 points more than the blaugrana and that at home he has won 6 of his 7 league matches this season. Quite a challenge then for Xavi’s before the Christmas holidays. After the break, it will be time to visit the Majorca, which has three draws in Son Moix, and at grenade, that already tied at the Camp Nou in September and of the last four games at Nuevo los Cármenes they have only lost to the leader, Real Madrid. Between the duels against the Balearic Islands and the Andalusians, Barça will also debut this season in the Copa del Rey.
