Barcelona find themselves in somewhat of a transitional period under Ronald Koeman, given the major issues off the field, but things must never stand still in Catalonia as the Blaugrana have to prepare to lodge another title bid, having failed to win La Liga since 2019.
Koeman took over at the beginning of last season, and a poor first half saw them seemingly out of the title picture, only for them to win 14 of their first 16 league games after the turn of the year to move back into contention.
While a disappointing finish saw the Catalan outfit fall to third, and they were dumped out of the Champions League by Paris Saint-Germain at the last-16 stage, the ongoing troubles off the field made it a particularly tough task from the start, and with a year’s experience at Barca under his belt, Koeman will hope for a clean slate and an improved title push this time around.
They started the new season with a home clash against Real Sociedad, and a Gerard Pique goal and a Martin Braithwaite brace gave them a comfortable 3-0 lead.
While late goals from Julen Lobete and Mikel Oyarzabal made the game tight, Sergi Roberto found the net in injury time to seal a 4-2 victory.
Koeman’s men failed to make it back-to-back wins last time out, when they played out a 1-1 draw with an Athletic Bilbao side known to cost them points regularly over the last few seasons, as Inigo Martinez put the Basque outfit ahead before Memphis Depay drew the Blaugrana level in the 75th minute to earn a point, which they may have been fortunate to collect on the balance of the game.
With defending champions Atletico Madrid winning both of their first two matches, Barcelona will know that they cannot afford to give up much ground to their title rivals at this early stage, and will be keen to make a quick return to winning ways on Sunday.
