Spanish giants Barcelona have been a shadow of themselves ever since the departure of Argentina's professional footballer Lionel Messi.
Barcelona, Barcelona this season has recorded three wins, three draws, two losses in all competitions. As a result of these two losses in the UEFA Champions League, Barcelona are currently at the bottom of their UCL group.
Barcelona's recent loss against Benfica in the UCL means that the club has gone five straight Champions League games without a win for the first time since 1997.
Nevertheless, even though Barcelona's performances in the UEFA Champions League this season have not been good, their performances in the domestic league are on average. They are currently in 7th position in the Laliga table with 12 points after six matches played in the Laliga.

Goalkeeper: Ter Stergen
Defenders: Balde, Pique, Araújo, Dest
Midfielders: Gavin/Riqui, Busquets, Frankie
Forwards: Coutinho, Memphis Depay, Demir
