Barcelona’s 100% start to the season came to an end after a crushing 4-1 defeat against Celta de Vigo in the midweek action.
The club were overwhelming favourites to retain the league title that they won in Luis Enrique’s first season at the club. The brilliant start that led to 12 points from the opening three games ascertain this fact, but there has been signs of trouble brewing within the scenes. Barcelona needed solitary goals in order to get past opposition like Malaga and Atletico Madrid. They also opened their Champions League campaign with a 1-1 draw against Roma.
