Speed rely Barcelona against AC Milan in Champions League
Barcelona: La Liga Before entering the 20th week mid-January, no one predicted Barcelona would reap the worst times in the last 50 years. In fact, it was a former architect Barcelona that next season will deal with Bayern Munich, Pep, was praised Lionel Messi et al are judged far more elegant than when playing under his direction last season.
However, what happened to Barcelona? Beginning with the first defeat of Real Sociedad, Barcelona glide freely chart appearance.
