Footage of two of the more elder statesmen at FC Barcelona embroiled in a heated debate has turned heads online this evening, as things continue to go from bad to worse for Ronald Koeman’s side.
Lemar & Suarez on target
The struggling Blaugrana are of course currently locked in action once more.
After slipping to a frankly embarrassing 3-0 defeat at the hands of Benfica in the Champions League’s group stages during the week, Koeman and co. turned their attentions back towards matters on the domestic front, in a meeting with Atletico Madrid.
Barca headed into proceedings aware that, despite their altogether difficult opening to the campaign, a victory would in fact guide them clear of their hosts on Saturday, and into the top-4.
As things stand, however, the Catalans’ woes only look set to deepen.
With 45 minutes played out in the Spanish capital, Barcelona sit in a 2-goal hole, owing to strikes from Thomas Lemar and, adding insult to injury, former star man Luis Suarez:

All is not well
And, as outlined above, amid another alarming night in the recent history of one of European football’s biggest clubs, concern has since continued to spread amongst the club’s fanbase.
This comes after Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets, close friends and two of the elder statesmen in Ronald Koeman’s squad, were spotted in an altogether heated on-pitch exchange.
The incident, which came in the direct aftermath of Atleti’s opener, can be seen below, almost perfectly encapsulating the complete and utter mess that is FC Barcelona at this moment in time:
