    E207: Lewandowski downs Valencia, Madrid in Barca's sight & Ansu 2.0

    E207: Lewandowski downs Valencia, Madrid in Barca's sight & Ansu 2.0

    Sam, Rik and Toni discuss Barcelona's 1-0 win over Valencia, which moved Xavi Hernandez's side within one point of leaders Real Madrid, who slipped up against Girona. 
    That is now 38 LaLiga games in charge for Xavi and, despite the Champions League failings, he's secured enough points to win a league title in an 'ordinary' season, although maybe not in an exceptional one, which this one is shaping up to be. 
    Also covered on the latest episode of the podcast is Ansu Fati's form as he turns 20, a trip to Viktoria Plzen or a trip to the circus, Toni's betting habit, stingy Englishmen and Vincent Kompany's Burnley (brought up by Toni, not Sam!)

    E205: Athletic annihilated on Valverde's return, Barca praying for Plzen

    E205: Athletic annihilated on Valverde's return, Barca praying for Plzen

    Barcelona made it back-to-back wins in LaLiga with an impressive 4-0 win against Athletic Club on Sunday. Ousmane Dembele, Sergi Roberto, Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres scored the goals to spoil Ernesto Valverde's return to Camp Nou. 
    Sam, Rik and Toni discuss that win, Xavi's midfield four, Dembele's masterclass, Alejandro Balde for Spain and gentleman Valverde. 
    Thoughts then turn to Wednesday, when Barça's Champions League future will be in the hands of Viktoria Plzen, who take on Inter Milan. By the time Barça then kick off against Bayern Munich, they will know if their Champions League campaign is still alive or not. How will that affect the planning and the game?
