Luis Enrique’s men are facing a moment of truth. Adrift in the Liga table after two lethargic performances that offered up two consecutive draws, Barcelona need a win in the upcoming Clásico to stay within striking distance.

Before training, the coaching staff and players had a 20 minute meeting to discuss mistakes made at the Anoeta staduim, when Barcelona were far from their best on their way to a 1-1 draw against Real Sociedad. Barcelona still must face Hércules in the Copa del Rey before Real Madrid, and after that, the team will focus 100% on that pivotal league match.

Worryingly, Gerard Piqué, Jordi Alba and Lionel Messi are not fit at the moment. They are almost guaranteed to be rested in the cup, but will they make it to the match against Real?

And will the talk after a disappointing result at Anoeta re-ignite the team, as it did on their way to a famous treble in Luis Enrique’s first year?
