Barcelona coach, Ernesto Valverde has renewed his contract recently and Barcelona would like from him to win the treble this season. Ever since Luis Enrique in 2014-15 season, they have not managed to win the Champions League and therefore the treble. They have been winning the Copa Del Rey for 4 consecutive years, but now it's the time to win it all.

#5 The back-bone Sergio Busquets

Since Pep Guardiola introduced him to the first team, he has been one of the most important player. He has been the best defensive midfielder over the past 5-7 years.

"You watch the game, you don't see Busquets. You watch Busquets, you see the whole game." - Vicente del Bosque

I don't think he will be on each one of your list, but is surely the player who controls Barcelona game. This season he has looked a bit of form and this is the reason why Barcelona are struggling to defend the counters.

To win everything, Barca will expect some great performances from him and he is surely gonna do it.

#4 The Aerial Duel problems

Gerard Pique has been the leader of the Barcelona defence and is in form since the beginning of the year 2019. But unlike his international partner Sergio Ramos, he has not scored many goals in the Barcelona shirt. Lenglet or Vermaelen have not impressed by scoring goals. Every time Barcelona get a corner, it turns to an opposition counter-attack. Coutinho, Messi or Dembele, neither of them have been able to give good deliveries and the players inside the box have also been vulnerable.

Also when Barcelona defend against teams like Man United, Roma or any team with taller and more physical players, they struggle with aerial duels. They are not able to win the headers. I think that creates problem for defence and will have to be improved.
