No one doubts Xavi and his future at Barcelona, but so far it looks a bit like status quo and a club in a bit of a dilemma with earlier life as they are struggling to dominate, but still trying.
Against Bayern and Real Betis we certainly did not see any signs of 10 commandments being what will change the attitude and style of play as the club needs to get back in a winning way.
This season must be about finding back to something from the past and get the best out of the Europa League play that will happen in the new year.
Barca are up against Osasuna away today and need a reaction in a positive way, and still should have the players to really get out and win such a clash.
We need to see the will and determination this team had with Puyol in there as his attitude was his best attribute. A grand player with a presence that you today don’t see in either Busquets or Pique.
The two players are keys in this team and they are the two that really can stand out and make a difference, but as we have seen so many times before it does not really count.
Osasuna er currently 10th in the table just two points behind Barca, and it will not be an easy game as the two teams play each other later today.Embed from Getty Images
Xavi will of course need everyone to perform to their very best, but what we did see against Bayern Munich was just a repeat of earlier happenings under Ronald Koeman.Embed from Getty Images
Another 90 minutes with stress for Barca fans as we just wait for the game to start.
