Even though they were seemingly on a great run of form, Barcelona couldn’t get past the newly-promoted Cádiz in their latest La Liga bout. The Catalans were beaten 2-1 away from home and any sort of title aspirations are now even farther away.
The papers this morning, however, are focusing on two different things. SPORT are going with the cover that highlights Ousmane Dembélé’s injury.
The Frenchman suffers from another muscle elongation and this time, could be out for around 15 days. That doesn’t seem as bad at first but simply the fact this is very much a recurring theme in his fitness is worrying, to say the least.
SPORT are also talking about the potential clash between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the final game of the group stage in the Champions League. The match will decide who advances to the knockout stages as the first-placed team.
Mundo Deportivo, on the other hand, talk about Ronald Koeman’s frustrations after the weekend’s loss.
The coach is not happy because Barcelona are conceding goals due to unforced errors in the games. This is something that simply has to be fixed moving forward if they are to mount any kind of title run at all.
