Due to an unsuccessful start, Barcelona fans for the first time in a long time see their club in an unusual position. According to the results of three rounds, the Catalans occupy only eighth place.
“Barca” perfectly played in the preseason, having twice beat “Napoli” and defeating “Arsenal”, strengthened by Antoine Griezmann. But without Lionel Messi, the Catalans are not able to show their best football. The Blaugranas failed to win seven of the eight previous bouts in which the Argentine did not take part.
The “Valencia” start also turned out to be mediocre, however, it was already like this last season that it did not stop the “bats” in the end getting out on the fourth line. The football community in the camp of “Valencia” stirred up another. Absolutely successful Marcelino Toral was fired from his post as head coach of the team.
