No king will reign forever,
so goes a saying. This can
be likened to what the
world acclaimed best team
is experiencing now. ‘No
club can reign forever’. Has Barcelona reached its
peak? Following FC Barcelona’s
lacklustre performance in
recent matches, many
soccer followers have
begun to ponder whether
the recent development could mark the end of
Barcelona’s reign in world
football. In Tuesday’s El- Clasico
encounter, Cristiano
Ronaldo got the better of
Lionel Messi, scoring twice
to lead Real Madrid to a
3-1 win at Barcelona and a spot in the Copa del Rey
final. Ronaldo-Messi After the first leg of their
semifinal ended 1-1, Madrid
neutralized Barcelona’s
passing game and counter-
attacked to perfection at
the Camp Nou to hand its arch rival its first home
loss in any competition
since last April. It was also a second
straight cup setback for
the Catalan club, which is
running away with the
Spanish league but lost
2-0 at AC Milan in the first leg of its Champions
League last-16. For Barcelona, it was their
worst defeat to Madrid
since losing 4-1 at the
Santiago Bernabeu in 2008. Barcelona suffered the
same problems it had
against Milan, unable to
convert its better share
of possession into goals,
while its defense again proved brittle as it allowed
goals for the 12th straight
match. The team has had
five wins, three draws and
three losses since mid-
January. And the question is: could
this be the end of
Barcelona’s reign in world
football? So what is your
take on this, do you see
Barcelona bouncing back and be on top of their
game again?
