Football changes so fast.
Just think back one month ago. Barcelona was the best team in the world in the middle of the biggest unbeaten streak in Spanish football history. The 'MSN' trio was firing on all cylinders, and the Treble winners were on track to become the first side ever to win all three major titles in consecutive seasons. There was no way this incredible team would lose.
Welcome to today, and you'll see a completely different scenario. That untouchable team has lost three straight games in La Liga, and their giant advantage at the top of the table is completely gone. The best three players in the world look mediocre, and the world-beating team of 30 days ago is now a laughing stock.
The Champions League is over, so is the chance of a Treble. There are two titles left to win, but the Catalans do not look like favorites. They could go from a historic winning team to a historic failure, and this current squad's future is at stake in the final six games of the campaign. They have to win. There is no other choice.
The first of six finals is on Wednesday against Deportivo La Coruña. A victory is crucial to stay league leaders and gain some confidence again. But the opponents have hurt Barça in the last few matches, and are motivated to do it again. You cannot miss this game.
