Elche vs. Barcelona: Tactical Preview of Copa Del Rey Game | Bleacher Report

Barcelona’s performances this season have been up and down, with fans piling on Luis Enrique when it goes wrong and oddly quiet when it goes right. The pressures of managing one of the finest clubs in the world, ladies and gentlemen.

The comments leading up to this weekend’s blockbuster tie against Atletico Madrid were largely negative; many fans feared not only defeat but embarrassment. The ideal, statement-making 5-0 victory midweek against Elche was discarded, with the obvious qualification of comparative squad strength a strong and easy argument to make.

But the 3-1 victory over Los Colchoneros—who were also fresh off a brilliant 2-0 win over arch-rivals Real Madrid—showcased this Barca side at its very best. via | Bleacher Report
