This game buried Valverde and secured his firing. In 2 days at the Camp Nou, Atleti will bury Setien and secure his firing.
football is my life ⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽
Under Valverde Barcelona is only good at Home. Away from home they have lost or draw with league poorest team. Conceded 0-3 against Roma n 0-4 against Liverpool. Concede 2 goals in last ten minutes.
It is refrees mistake leo did not touch hand ball
Messi Messi Messi …?!! why do u blame griezman. ! !!!
Why not ask whether Chelsea deserve their win against Barca in UCL……lol
Barca's game patterns are very bad, easy to guess. Defenders are very stupid and they don't have coordinatio. Barca's team Will ? ?
Funny how two teams that did not win any cup or play any final are now playing to win a super cup
Valverde should of been fire 2 years ago ?? like what the board see in him i dont kno
When Barca loss this hypocritical guys don’t blame Messi, in juv they will say Ronaldo has lost it, he is no longer the GOAT, CR7 is still the best
Ernesto Valverde is the GOAT
You dont deserve anything is football. Every game ends how it ends. Stupid title
the game of football, we have it all wrong.. its not the team who scores more than the other no… its who had more possession, more passes completed, more merit, more chances created.. the info is analyzed by a group of experts and then they inform the team that won after the game is finished… get the f*ck atta here!!!
Floyd Mayweather is the best ever for using his defensive skills when he is under attack and then switch his game into attack when he wants, there is no right or wrong way to play football.
Nope, Idc if people bash me, both FC Barcelona's disallowed goals were good to me, also Griezmann scored*
ESPN: It’s Barcelona fault
Juventus loose to Lazio
ESPN: Ronaldo was terrible, he lost his level
Shacka said they deserved it? I think he might actually be high
Should never have been an offside call given, absolutely ridiculous when he was on line
A win is not about deserving or undeserving.. a win is a win morons..
Velverd must leave Barcelona to get better again
I am Barcelona fans but Barcelona will end the season triumphlest
A win it's a win…that's all that matters, there is no "who deserved the most"
What a stupid question: "was Atletico DESERVING of their win"! Nobody "DESERVES" anything! Football is sport, a competition, where somebody wins and somebody loses and who wins he wins and finish, nothing more! AUPA ATLETI!!!
At the end winning is something that matters and barca have the habit to be choked at the cruical time
Barca needs to open more packs
No barca had 4 to5 goals there was hand in athletico's penalty box ref didn't give the penalty.
I’m the only one expecting Barcelona lost more so they will sack Valverde
The question y’all should be asking is should this topic deserve to be talked about or not? Because y’all are just wasting saliva and breath, BARCA LOST MOVE TF ON SHIDDD
These guys need to get off Messi ⚽️⚽️
just hate how they all went at felix like a bully, smh and jordi alba is acting like a kid
Really can't take these guys seriously, I think that they don't watch the matches when I hear them talking about it.
I'm a real Madrid fan but for me barcelona does nit need that they have like 10 of those??
What is the point of arguing they deserved or not? It's unfair arguing that. Try to appreciate them for the efforts they put in winning. They fought hard against Barca.
Honestly no but it’s barca’s fault
What’s the point if you deserve or not you got to
score to win smh
Atleti deserves as much as Barcelona does; I'm sorry, did you just judge atletico as underdog? C'mon now!! If it's not for Ramos header and referees baised lean on Madrid , atleti would be two time UCL champions 14 and 16
Barcelona only beats athletico in the league and copa del Ray but not champions league or a cup final.
El Barça desaparece en los importantes partidos y estos hablan y hablan puras estupideces!!!
Barca needs a overhaul , that's just it ….Every team at some point in running needs to rebuild…. check the likes of liverpool , Man City, Inter Milan they all had gone through rebuilding stage ….You would sack managers left and right an still have the same problem …Big Example Manchester United.
Shaka pisses me off man. His life goal is to argue against messi and barca even when he shldnt
Trash keeper in Barcelona
It does not matter who has possession all that matter is who has more goals.
