Barca Dissappoints Again; Athletic – 1, Barca – 1

“For the third time in row Barca failed to win their La Liga match after an international break. They are known to carry their form in La Liga to the UEFA Champions League, and if that happen we will definitely see holders Barca getting knocked out of the Champions League in the group stage. In the preview of this match I have written about my concern about our away form. What irritates me most is Guardiola’s attitude after the match, he made a statement which is in line with his usual standing – that he is unconcerned with Barca’s dip in form.” (All About FC Barcelona)

Barcelona held at Bilbao
“Barcelona will head into El Clasico next weekend in second place in the Primera Division after being held to a 1-1 draw at Athletic Bilbao. Pep Guardiola’s side kicked off the clash at San Mames having relinquished top spot to Real Madrid, who beat Racing Santander 1-0 earlier on Saturday night. The Spanish and European champions looked on course to reclaim their place at the summit when Dani Alves opened the scoring in the 54th minute, but substitute Gaizka Toquero levelled matters nine minutes later and Athletic held on for a point.” (ESPN)
