- Match Analysis
Philippe Coutinho has claimed Barcelona are on the right path despite not registering a win in their last four matches in the La Liga.
Following a great start to the season they have now faltered massively in their quest of retaining the League titles and have been pushed back to the second position.
Draws against Girona, Valencia and Athletic Bilbao and a shocking defeat at the hands of Leganes have complicated situations for Ernesto Valverde whose own future is hanging over a thread.
The Catalan giants will have the chance to reclaim the top spot when they meet Sevilla after the completion of the international break. A win in the next match against archrivals Real Madrid will confirm their authority in the Spanish tier.
Coutinho who has been an important part of the Spanish champions insisted they are not panicking despite a shoddy performance in the last few matches. “Going four (league) matches without a win is not normal for this club.
“A football season is a long time and lots of things can happen, so the situation is always amplified but we know not to panic.
“I am not worried because I know this team, we are still in at the top end of the table and we made a strong start in the Champions League. We are calm.”
