1. Defender: Alex Balde (Barcelona) Barcelona and Spanish youngster Alex Balde was ruled out against Granada, and he has not been playing, Ronald Koeman decided to subbed him off in the first half because he couldn't continue the game. The Barcelona youngster was spotted training this week and he looks very sharp in training, it seems like he will be back in action after the international break.
Barcelona is famed for their great academy potential (even though it has dwindled in recent years). The 20-year-old, on the other hand, did not disappoint, having played a key role in the build-up to Lionel Messi's winner, which helped Barcelona to a 1-0 victory over Granada.
Apparently, the Blaugranas are currently going through a lot of struggle in the squad, as they have been dazzling awfully in all competitions, especially their performance against Bayern Munich and Granada on Monday. Of course, Barcelona haven't been able to gather themselves together, in the absence of Lionel Messi.
There will never be enough words to describe the career that Cristiano Ronaldo has led for almost 20 years, but his presence has been one the best things in world football. When it comes to finding the back of the net, the Portugese International stands at the head as very few active players come close to his numbers.

22 year-old Ronald Araujo may just turn out to be Barçelona's best player of the season, with his style of play and the amount of energy he puts into the team. He was literally the best player in the team, in their last two games (against Bayern and Granada).

[OPINION] Ronald Koeman is shooting himself in the foot by 'going to war' with Barcelona management.
One of the toughest jobs in the world right now is held by Ronald Koeman, Barcelona's head coach. A position that ten years ago would have been the dream of any coach, the Dutch squad no longer instill fear in their opponents as they used to, as evidenced by their 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday 14. of September.
Barçelona's boss, Ronald Koeman, is currently under very heavy pressure, following the underwhelming performances from the team. On Monday 20th September, they struggled to get a draw against Granada, after conceding a goals 2 minutes into the game. Barcelona attempted 54 crosses against Granada, the second highest they have ever attempted in their history, since their game against Malaga in 2016, where they attempted 55 crosses.
Barcelona has not been doing well since the season began, and given their present form, it appears like they will not go far until something changes at the club. Since the start of the season till now, the club has been unable to bring a smile to the faces of its fans.
Ronald Koeman's job could be in danger, if he fail to win the tomorrow's game against Cadiz. The fans are really angry about the draw against Granada, but I believe that, the players are ready to bounce back against Cadiz tomorrow. Based on the Barcelona squad released, Ronald Koeman could line-up like this against Cadiz tomorrow.
Barcelona faced Granada yesterday night in their fourth match played this season. Many Barca fans would not be pleased by what they saw on the pitch yesterday. Things got so bad on the pitch that Koeman resorted to using Gerrard Pique, a defender, as a striker in the second half.
Barcelona has had an abysmal start to the 2021-22 season after the departure of club legend Lionel Messi for free to join PSG. They have played eight games in all competitions, won three, drawn three, and lost two. Both Barca's losses have been in the Champions League, meaning they remain unbeaten in the league after six games.
Barcelona are currently not having a perfect start to the season, they might be unbeaten in five league matches but they are no where near the top four spot. Ronald Koeman side has failed to grab all three points against easy opponents, they'll have to win more matches if they still want to contend for the league title.
Barcelona are currently having a very tough season both financially and in their performances. Despite not playing at their best, Barcelona will definitely feel they would feel a bit 'sour' considering some very harsh refereeing decisions including a second half red card. Barcelona Drop Points... Again
The La Liga Matchday seven finally drew close yesterday as all 10 games went down in the competition this week. The competition was filled with lots of intriguing and exciting football moments this week as several teams put up outstanding performances to win their various matches. Barcelona returned to winning ways in the competition this week when they comfortably defeated Levante 3-0 at the Camp Nou Stadium on Sunday.
Barcelona is beginning to look for the replacement of Ronald Koeman following the Joan Laporta's long hour emergency meeting with his board of directors. After the Granada game, doubts have surround Koeman's continuity in the club but the Dutchman is expected to be in charge of next match against Cadiz.
