Barcelona, Barcelona know very well what they are

doing this season. With a backbone in the squad that is over 30 years

old, they know they can’t empty the tank in every game.

They have learned to play in bursts and in most games, don’t need

to be at full capacity because they are able to win by putting in less

effort, The MARCA said.

It is true that from time to time, they come unstuck, as happened

against Leganes, Girona and Betis among others but in general, they

are finding ways to win.

They also know when the occasion calls for it to deliver their best. In

big games, Barcelona are a hurricane that has devastated the

opposition. That happened in the Champions League against rivals

such as Tottenham, Inter and PSV.

They also handed out a big beating to Real Madrid and on

Wednesday when a comeback was needed, they were at their best

again, the MARCA added.

They knew it was a show they had to turn up for and duly did so.

Barcelona put in a fantastic performance, one in which the team

shone and weren’t entirely dependent on Lionel Messi, who did also

play very well, with everyone at an extraordinary level.

From Jasper Cillessen, who made two superb saves, to the other 13

players who featured, everyone played their part. Barcelona know

when they have to deliver and that is why there is good reason for

thinking about the treble, the MARCA said.
