Barcelona v Leganes - La Liga
FC Barcelona

Despite a brilliant start to the season, FC Barcelona experienced a major setback in their quest for glory, this term. The Catalans were on track to win another treble this year, flying comfortably on top of the La Liga table with a few matches left and had already made it to the final of the Copa Del Rey. They were also in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League.

However, their treble hopes were squashed when they got knocked-out of the Champions League in the quarterfinals. After a comfortable 4-1 victory over Roma at the Camp Nou, the Catalans were humiliated in their visit to Rome. They suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat in Italy, with the Romans overcoming them with an away goal.

That defeat was met with a lot of criticism. In fact, many Barcelona fans reacted angrily on social media, criticising the club for throwing away such a great advantage. However, despite all the annoyances and criticisms, Barcelona's campaign has not been a total failure. The Catalans still have glory ahead of them.

Therefore, let us look at three things the Blaugrana can still do to save their season and compensate their angry fans:

#3 Complete domestic double

Barcelona are on course to claim a domestic double this season

It is true that Barcelona missed out on European glory this term, but the Catalans are still on course to sweep all the glory in their domestic campaign. All their efforts in the season have not gone without reward. They are already in the final of the Copa Del Rey and will face Sevilla FC on the 21st of April, 2018 for the trophy.

Moreover, they currently look destined to win the La Liga title this season. They are currently on top of the table with a massive 11-point lead with just 6 matches to go. This implies that, if the Catalans can win their next three matches, they will surely be crowned the leaders of the Spanish top flight.

Completing the domestic double will give their fans something to show for the season, as well as serving as a form of compensation for their European failure.
