The last two games have been a statement of intent by the blaugrana costumes. Barca achieved a historic win Saturday at the Bernabeu that went around the world. Far from relaxing, three days after Luis Enrique’s charges apabullaban AS Roma at the Camp Nou to seal the lead of their group in the Champions League. A bombshell to send a message to the football Europe: the aim is to repeat the treble.
The template Barca never tires of lifting trophies and accumulate records. For this team, success has become a drug and be so close to the possibility of becoming the first team stringing two Champions League and two triplets is more of a challenge, an obsession.

Past that disappointment, the Catalans have been proposed to raise the level of excellence that has led them to be the best team in history.

The season plan foresees a physical slump, especially when some players have just had a vacation because of the Copa America. In the case of Messi, Neymar, Mascherano, Dani Alves and Claudio Bravo.And that is the second objective, maintain the rate in all competitions to recover the best version. The calendar and rotations must play for options to get to the final, in which the titles are decided. The club has already visited many of the toughest fields -Calderón, Balaídos, and Sanchez Bernabeu and will Pizjuán- strengthening Aleix Vidal and Arda, which provide fresh air. Go for it.
