Barcelona v River Plate: Talking Points

Can anybody actually stop Luis Enrique’s men?

Rewind 11 months and the Catalans were looking at a potential trouble in the club after a season which saw them go trophy less. Six months later, Blaugranas completed a memorable turn around by finishing the season by winning every trophy they played for. The club won their second treble – a feat never achieved by any other team in the sport’s history. Again fast forward six months later and the world witnessed the treble winners cap off their year with two another trophies making it 5 out of a possible 6. Luis Enrique has made this group of players almost unstoppable with the trio of Messi, Neymar and Suarez on its way to become the most devastating front line in the sport’s history. It is almost impossible for any defense to be able to stop the three of them together and with this level of performance, Barcelona could very well be on their way to break further records in the new year one of which would be the team becoming the first club in the history of the sports to win the Champions League twice in a row.
