    E373: Xavi beats Luis Enrique in Paris in the Barça DNA battle

    E373: Xavi beats Luis Enrique in Paris in the Barça DNA battle

    Raphinha scored twice on a memorable European night for Barcelona as Xavi Hernández's side recorded an impressive and significant 3-2 win over Luis Enrique's Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League quarterfinal first leg on Wednesday. The two teams meet again in Montjuic on Tuesday.
    Sam and Rik look back at a game which saw good performances from several Barça players. They ask if this was the biggest win of the Xavi era? Barça's best European away day in almost a decade? They also discuss the impact of Raphinha, Ousmane Dembele, Pedri's return from injury and much more.
    NOTE: With Toni travelling back from the game in Paris, he and and Sam will record a bonus pod for Patreons on Friday on his experience in the French capital.

    E366: Barça batter Atlético Madrid as Champions League draw opens up

    E366: Barça batter Atlético Madrid as Champions League draw opens up

    One, two, three. Atlético Madrid had not lost at home in LaLiga in 25 games, but Barcelona smashed them 3-0 on Saturday to extend their own unbeaten streak to 10 matches and become the first team to beat Atlético at the Metropolitano in the league since... Barcelona in January 2023. 
    Sam and Toni reflect on Barça's good run, which has now included wins over Napoli and Atlético, Robert Lewandowski's form, players stepping up with others injured and increased intensity in training. Rik then joins to give his player ratings ahead of a full return to action later this week. 
    Finally, Sam and Toni look on a Champions League draw, which has opened up for Barça -- as long as they can eat their fish -- and the resignation of the club's vice president of finance Eduard Romeu last week.

    E364: Baby Barça beat Mallorca, Aguirre's rats & Napoli next up

    Barcelona warmed up for Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday by beating Mallorca 1-0 on Friday. Lamine Yamal struck the winner and Pau Cubarsí excelled at the back as Barça's youngsters stepped up once again. 
    Sam and Toni reflect on that game at the Olympic Stadium and look ahead to Napoli, pondering what Xavi Hernández will do in midfield with so many players injured. A possible Champions League quarterfinal -- Barça's first since 2020 -- is the reward up for grabs in midweek... #siemprepositivo

    With Toni back from Bilbao, he looks back on Barcelona's goalless draw against Athletic Club on Sunday with Sam. How bad was it? What was the ambition comment that so irked Marc-Andre ter Stegen? How long will Frenkie de Jong be out? Will Pedri ever get back to his best? Who plays in midfield now? Plus: Late refereeing controversy as Real Madrid held by Valencia.
