Barcelona team lacks “courage” so says Xavi Hernandez as he the manager admits the Catalans has a “psychological issue”
Barcelona form this season is regarded as the worst in over 20 years in the club’s history.
Barcelona have failed to record a win in their last three games in all competition following another 2:2 draw to Osasuna away from home on Sunday.
Despite going ahead twice in the game they couldn’t hold onto it. Nico Gonzalez scored in the early 12th minute to put Barcelona ahead but they let the lead quickly slide as Osasuna responded almost immediately in the 14th minute through David Garcia to put the score levelled before halftime.
Abde Ezzalzouli restored Barcelona’s lead 3minute into the second half before Ezequiel Ávila equalised again for Osasuna in the 86th minute.
Barcelona are placed 8th with over 14 points behind rivals Real Madrid who are top of the table. The top four spot is not a reality for them considering their recent form.
The Catalans was thrown down to the Eurpopa league after being knocked out of the UEFA Champions League during the week.
Barcelona scored just goals in the Champions League in six games a record the fans would love to erase if possible.
Things got worse after they lost 0:1 at home to Real Betis after coming from defeat to Bayern Munich.
Xavi who have oversee two wins and a draw in his first three games as Barcelona head coach after the sacking of Ronald Koeman believes the squad has “talent” but lacks the confidence to win games.
