Barca hopes to return to make history in the world of football
In 2015 Barça entered the hall of fame of the king of sports by winning its second triplet and become the first team to do it. The Triple Crown that the blaugrana won with Luis Enrique coaching, was added to that achieved by Pep Guardiola six years before, in 2009.
A season, of 2009, worth remembering, as well as league titles, Champions Cup, Barca Guardiola also won the Super Cup trophies in Spain and Europe, in addition to the Club World Cup. Quite a milestone. further, Another fact to take into account is that on both occasions the Catalans won the three trophies during the first year on the bench of the two technical.
Last season, Ernesto Valverde with the helm of the first team, the Catalans returned to play the treble with the fingertips. The team's situation at that time was, a priori, better than that with which they had to deal Guardiola and Luis Enrique, but the dream of return to be with the Triple Crown was not possible.
The team won the League loosely with 14 points difference from the runner, Atletico Madrid, and the Copa del Rey against Sevilla by 0 a 5. But nevertheless, Champions, Rome was the surprise in the quarter and managed to lift the 4 Goals encajándole one leg 3-0 the blaugrana in arguably was the worst team match all season.
Now Valverde seeks to make amends and has taken the club to the top. League, the title seems more than sentenced, although there can always be some surprises along the way as the tie lived before the Huesca in the day 32.
Regardless of what you do Atletico and Real Madrid, second and third place, the Catalans should take all three points from their matches against Real Sociedad, Alaves and Levante in the coming days. In that case, those of Valverde would face the final stretch of the competition with nothing at stake. Otherwise, They will have to be higher than the Celta, Getafe and Eibar in the last three games, rivals, a priori, more than affordable for a boat that has its eyes on the Triple Crown.
With Laliga almost in your pocket, the culés face the challenge of reaching the final of the Champions and win it. For the moment, everything is going as planned and after overcoming the quarterfinals versus Manchester United, the Barca It has been cast in the semifinals of the Champions League.
However, the big surprise of the competition has given Ajax, that thanks to his victory against Juventus Cristiano Ronaldo has also made a hole in the previous step to the grand final. Both the club and the Dutch team rivals will meet on 30 April and 1 May in the first leg, and the 7 and the 8 May in back.
Of these two teams they will measure their strength in the final of the Champions, I find that it will take place on 1 Wanda June at the Metropolitan and in which, If all predictions are fulfilled, will be the Blaugrana.
The final which will be sure is to Copa del Rey. Those of Ernesto Valverde they will dispute the cupbearer title against Valencia at Benito Villamarín the 25 of May. It will not be an easy match, since the Valencians are doing a fantastic campaign in Europe and already have a foot in semis. League the situation is not inconsiderable.
Garcia Toral those are in sixth place with 49 points, a 3 Sevilla, with 52 and fourth place. While It is true that it is mathematically impossible to reach the third position, they can climb to fourth, thereby repeat the result of the previous season.
Barca has the goal posts again to win the treble, but everything will depend on the effectiveness of the team in their next meetings. To achieve the set goal, the Blaugrana would be the first team to take the Triple Crown three times in 10 years.
