Barcelona Have Not Been The Same After Liverpool Smashed Them 4-0
Barcelona have still not fully recovered from the 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final at Anfield in May.
Since Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum bagged braces to seal a stunning second leg comeback, the Blaugrana have lost the Copa Del Rey final against Valencia, gone seven away games without winning and are now experiencing their worst ever start to a season in 25 years.
The champions find themselves in seventh position having won two, drawn one and lost two - their latest loss being a shock 2-0 defeat to newly promoted Granada last night.
Goals from Ramon Azeez and Alvaro Vadillo take Granada to the top of the table and pile more pressure on Ernesto Valverde.
Plenty of Barcelona fans are calling for his head and the former Athletic Bilbao boss has expressed concerns over the poor form from his side.
"I'm worried because away from home we aren't getting good results," he said after the game, as per MARCA.
"When four away games have gone by, it's a symptom that something isn't too good.
"There are players who arrived late, but we haven't been good, we're not playing well away. We dominated, but we don't turn that into goalscoring chances.
"We haven't had a chance of turning the game around."
Liverpool might just be responsible for it all having inflicted such a psychologically damaging defeat, with even Lionel Messi admitting what happened in the game was still in his head.
Messi was rumoured to have broken down in tears inside the dressing room and we will now get to see exactly what happened behind the scenes as part of a documentary series called 'Match Day', according to RMC.
