Barcelona was stopped against Slavia Praha at the Nou Camp

Barcelona, the Spanish giants are facing bad luck in the Champions League from the last few seasons. They won their last UCL title in 2015 but in the last two years, they were one of the most powerful contenders but luck was not with them. They failed to get the away match victory in the UCL which was too important but was defeated both times. Now, at their home venue, they have been stumbled. Barcelona was stopped against Slavia Praha at the Nou Camp! Now, after playing the four matches in the Champions League group stage, Barca managed two victories and two draws. Yes, they are still holding the top position at the group level but the draw is not an acceptable fact actually.

The Catalan club Barcelona possesses as one of the most powerful attacking divisions in the football right now which is led by the captain of the team Lionel Messi. But when we looked at the last matches data, they took a total of 14 shots and among them, just six were on the target. And, not a single one could find the net. Yes, of course, they dominated the game by possessing the ball most of the time but it seems that in the whole match, they could not make any planned attack.

When these two teams faced in the first leg at the venue of Slavia Praha, Messi’s goal along with a suicidal goal helped Barcelona to get the victory. But at the home venue which is regarded as the fort of Barca, Slavia Praha stopped them!. The solid goalkeeper of the guest team Kolar himself saved his team number of times. Even Messi could not find a chance there but wasted a few. As a result, in the Champions League, the team of Valverde lost points at the home venue.

In the 4th round of the group F match of the Champions League took place earlier today at the Nou Camp between Barcelona and Slavia Praha which has finished with a 0 – 0 goals draw. In their last head to head battle, Barcelona managed a hard-fought victory by a 2 – 1 goal against them. Now, considering all the competitions, Valverde’s team could not find the victory for the last two matches. In their last match in La Liga, they were defeated against Levante by a 3 – 1 goal.

And now, against Slavia, they lost points. In the first five minutes, the guest team made two attacks which were quite dangerous for the home team. In the 14th minute, they could find another chance but Pique stopped him and saw a yellow card. In the first 25 minutes, the performance of Barca was too simple and gradually, they improved. In the 34th minute, Messi has been seen his own colour and he took his trademark shot. But unfortunately, his shot was stopped by the crossbar.
