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.
