Another day, another embarrassment for Barcelona.

The Catalan giants are sustaining among the most challenging spells in the club’s history, and Saturday night’s 2-0 defeat at Atletico Madrid was a suggestion of simply that.

Travelling to the ruling La Liga champs, Barcelona were beat in every department on the pitch. It was yet another disrespectful awakening to the truth that Ronald Koeman’s side, regardless of being the magnificent Barcelona, are miles far from the top of the domestic ladder – not to mention the continental one.

Setting out in a more familiar 4-3-3 development this time out, the pre-match sensation was among optimism at the truth that the club had actually gone back to its more natural identity. Free-streaming football, breaking with smooth imagination with a compact and difficult front 3 flanked by aggressive and marauding full-backs – well, that’s what it seemed like.
