After 11 games of the season -for Barcelona and Real Madrid, Barcelona top the La Liga with a tally of 22 points and Madrid lie in second place only behind on goal difference – +12 compared to Barcelona’s 15 via Skysports. Despite the usual names at the foremost front for La Liga supremacy, it hasn’t looked straight-forward this time around as only a mere four points separate first-placed Barcelona and ninth-placed Osasuna on 18 points.
Perhaps the most surprising thing about Barca’s indifferent start to the season is the club is that despite all the stutters, they still remain top of the league so far.
However, If Barcelona are to win a third consecutive title, they will almost certainly have to improve and find some consistency. But of course, consistency can only be achieved if the faces on the pitch are consistent in the first place.
