Happy Moan Day - Hopes For A Double Went Down The Sewer. hi
Right from the beginning of the 2018/19 seasonal campaign, lines have actually been falling in place for Barcelona with the hope of winning a treble this season. However, the journey seemed to be tougher than how it was first perceived at the initial stage. So many ups and downs, unfortunate moments and hard luck. The Blaugrana have been the favourite this season to win the LA LIGA, Copa del rey and UEFA champions league. This is a Happy Moan Day contest organised by Pete. An enthusiast and Scorum lover who has devoted his time for the goodwill of the platform. Gracias Papa. source Barcelona who are 30 times cup winners struggled in the finals without injured Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele. Lionel Messi was able to help the team reduce the deficit from his second half close range goal. By default, Barcelona's campaign collapsed weeks ago as they threw away a three-goal Champions League semi-final lead to be eliminated by Liverpool before letting the Cup slip out of their hands. Barcelona were bidding to lift themselves from their humiliation on Merseyside by securing the ninth domestic double in their history, but despite Messi's efforts they were over-run by a determined and well-drilled Valencia side. source Match Analysis Marcelino's side were able to take control of the game with a first half opener from K.Gameiro. He drew the first blood for his team as he makes no mistake past Cillessen after receiving a low pass from left back J.Gaya. The game went into play again but the referee had to call for a cooling break because of the searing 30 degree Celsius weather in Sevilla. The Los Ches came with another break through just two minutes after the cooling break. Rodrigo heads home a double for the team after receiving a brilliant cross from C.Soler who escaped J.Alba(Barcelona) will a mountain speed before making the instrumental cross. The boys are now in dreamland after securing the first half with two goals. The second half is surely going to be a death race as they'll want to defend with their blood. Lionel Messi squeezed in one goal from close range, reducing the goal deficit to one. Every other hustle was blown into thin air by the active defensive line Valencia erupted. Source Barcelona had created more chances, had more shots(on goal), had more ball possession, more corners. These stats were enough to give them victory on paper but reality spoke otherwise. Dreams of a domestic double just escaped their grasp. Many would say its still the effect of losing out to Liverpool in the champions league final that caused the defeat. Its funny how Messi had raised the hopes of the Blaugrana fans when he told them he'll get them the Champions league. Now the Copa del rey went far away from their grasp too leaving the Argentine skipper with one domestic title(laliga). Will this negative result hinder the chances of the star player winning his sixth Balon d'Or as his goals and assist records remained intact both in Spain and Europe? Word Of Encouragement Perseverance is a common fate that will definitely drive us to that destination we seek. Quiters never win and winners never quit. #Presevere. Thanks For Reading...
