Barcelona’s options in attack are limited in the wake of the injury to Lionel Messi, which could see the Argentinian sidelined for up to 7-8 weeks, and the unfortunate incident has highlighted the lack of depth manager Luis Enrique has at his disposal heading into the January transfer window when their transfer ban will end.
On the face of it, we’re about to learn something about the ability, character and talent of Luis Enrique’s Barcelona squad while Lionel Messi is absent for at least two months. Who will step up to the plate, who’ll be missing, and what “extra” will this bring out of the manager’s repertoire? how will Barca react with upcoming games .. these are questions being asked.
So what do you think? Barcelona survived last time a little while longer without messi, Can they do it again this time to defend their title?
