Barcelona’s downfall
After losing Messi Barcelona has been struggling to win games in the Champions
League. Some people say it’s because they no longer have Messi. But others claim that
the coach is at fault and that Barcelona needs to start from scratch. Barcelona is
currently standing in last place with 0 points, 2 losses. They are in group E with Bayern
in first, Benfica in second, and Dynamo Kyiv in third.

Young Legend Ansu Fati
The young legend Ansu Fati who started playing professionally with Barcelona at
the age of 16 is now Barcelona’s icon. He has recently been given the #10 for
Barcelona. We all know #10 is an icon number for Barcelona since it was Messi’s
number for 13 years. Some fans are not happy about this and think that the #10 should
be retired from Barca. Fati does not respond to the hate but says that he is proud to
wear the 10 after Messi. Some think that Fati wearing #10 is the best option because of
his history with Messi back in 2019 when Messi said this in an interview, “I really like
him and I try to help and support him. He’s an amazing player and he’s got what it takes
to succeed. But if I look at it through my eyes, I’d like them to bring him on gradually,
like they did with me when I started, taking things nice and easy and without putting
pressure on him.

“You have to remember that he’s only 16. I hope he keeps on enjoying it and that all the
fuss around him doesn’t have a negative impact on him because he has the quality to
become one of the best.”

Two friends reunite
Ansu Fati and Pablo Gavi are childhood friends and are now playing for
Barcelona. Pablo Gavi was signed this year 2021 and is only 17 years old. He has been
playing with U-Barcelona since 2015. It looks like the Barca coach Ronald Koeman is
trying to change his team and is going for young players like Ansu and Pablo.

PSG’s Chance to Win This year

If you don’t know already, PSG(Paris Saint-Germain) has never been able to win
a Champions League title. But now with Messi on their side and other iconic players like
Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Sergio Ramos this year is looking very promising for
them. Some people even call this the dream team or a Fifa ultimate team because of
how unreal it sounds to have all these great players in one team. The closest PSG has
been to winning a title was back in August 23, 2020 when they made it to the final
against Bayern and lost 0-1.
