Messi-less Barcelona as useless as ‘Brain-dead’ Valverde?


Could it be their manager or players’ attitude?

Barcelona showed another flop during their match against Club Atletico Osasuna on Saturday at El Sadar Stadium. The squad, which lacked Lionel Messi, was held to a 2-2 draw by the hosts with Barca’s wonder kid Ansu Fati showing exemplary performance.

Ansu, aged 16 years, came on as a substitute and scored his first professional goal after six minutes to equalise for the Spanish champions after Roberto Torres smashed a volley past Barca goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

But Arthur Melo’s fine goal for the Blaugrana in the 64th minute was levelled by Roberto Torres Morales through a penalty when the ball struck Gerard Pique’s arm in the box.

Ernesto Valverde’s side has started the campaign with one win, one defeat, and one draw- their worst start after their first three games since 2008/09, under Pep Guardiola, but ended up lifting the trophy.
