Barcelona defenders Gerard Pique and Ronald Araujo are both trying to prove their fitness ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain. The Catalans would love to have both players available but that looks doubtful with Pique having been out since November and Araujo having suffered a sprained ankle last weekend. According to Catalunya Radio, the duo both trained with the group on Sunday and so are not out of the running to play on Tuesday yet. Barca will train again on Monday where both

Samuel Umtiti The Frenchman's long-awaited comeback was a big thing but he has struggled when really we needed him to deliver. Umtiti had a disastrous game against Granada in Copa del Rey and looked error-prone in the recent Sevilla loss. Starting XI replacement: Oscar Mingueza or Ronald Araujo (if the latter is fit for the game). Miralem Pjanic The Bosnian got just 18 minutes against Alaves after recovering

Barcelona travelled to the Andalusian capital last night to take on Sevilla in the first leg of the semi-final of the Copa del Rey at the Sanchez-Pizjuan. First advantage went to Sevilla. Julen Lopetegui‘s men secured an impressive 2-0 victory, scoring either side of half-time to ensure that Barcelona returned to Catalonia empty-handed. They were competent, controlled and ruthless.

Seville Spain, February 11 (ANI): Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman defended Samuel Umtiti after the defender made errors on both of Sevilla's goals in Thursday's Copa del Rey match. Jules Kounde dribbled straight through Umtiti in the first half on the way to scoring Sevilla's opener, while Umtiti kept Ivan Rakitic onside before the Croatian scored his side's second in the 85th minute against his former club. Sevilla won the semi-final first leg 2-0, leaving Barca with plenty of work to do in the second leg
Barcelona‘s Copa del Rey semi-final first leg with Sevilla was like a basketball game in many ways, end to end and thrilling, with the Andalusian hosts coming out on top 2-0. The most striking comparison of the night, according to a report in Mundo Deportivo, was between the two French centre-backs, Jules Kounde and Samuel Umtiti. Ronald Koeman was missing his two first-choice centre banks for the game in Ronald Araujo and Gerard Pique, so opted for the combination of Oscar Mingueza and Umtiti while leaving
I want to preface what I’m about to say by noting that I am genuinely sorry for Samuel Umtiti. When he arrived at Barcelona, he was the real deal. A proper old school centre-back that could do it all and for a snip in the transfer market to boot. For my money, he was, alongside Gerard Pique, the best defender in La Liga. However, his decision to not have his knee treated properly, going down a more holistic route, in hindsight, has ruined his career. Certainly ruined it at Barca at any rate. The Frenchman

Ronald Koeman leapt to the defence of Samuel Umtiti after the Barcelona defender saw two individual errors punished with goals in their 2-0 defeat by Sevilla in the Copa del Rey semi-final first leg. Sevilla defender Jules Kounde easily dribbled past Umtiti for his side's opener before the Frenchman was slow to keep up with his defensive line and played Ivan Rakitic onside for the second. Speaking in his post-match press conference, Koeman was in no mood to single any individual out after an underwhelming team
22-year-old Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, who has been linked with Manchester United several times this season as reported in October and in January, scored a ‘great’ goal last night against Barcelona in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final. Kounde picked up the ball in his own half before starting his move towards goal, exchanging passes with Suso and then skipping past several challenges, dribbling around Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti before finishing past Morgan Ter Stegen in the bottom
Barcelona travelled to the Andalusian capital this evening to take on Sevilla in the first leg of the semi-final of the Copa del Rey at the Sanchez Pizjuan. Both sides are still in the fight for European glory but off the pace in La Liga, so the Copa is the best chance either have of winning silverware this season. First advantage went to Sevilla. Julen Lopetegui‘s men secured an impressive 2-0 victory, scoring either side of half-time to ensure that Barcelona returned to Catalonia empty-handed. They were
