Youthful identity could provide hope

Another day, another humiliation for Barcelona.

The Catalan giants are enduring one of the most difficult spells in the club’s history, and Saturday night’s 2-0 defeat at Atletico Madrid was a reminder of just that.

Travelling to the reigning La Liga champions, Barcelona were outplayed in every single department on the pitch. It was yet another rude awakening to the fact that Ronald Koeman’s side, despite being the mighty Barcelona, are miles away from the top of the domestic ladder – let alone the continental one.

Setting out in a more familiar 4-3-3 formation this time out, the pre-match feeling was one of optimism at the fact that the club had returned to its more natural identity. Free-flowing football, bursting with silky creativity with a compact and tricky front three flanked by aggressive and marauding full-backs – well, that’s what it felt like.
