Why is Barcelona’s Defense so Bad Right Now?


It’s dangerous to draw too many conclusions so early in the season, but Barcelona has conceded an average of 2.85 goals this preseason. Last year Barca only conceded an average of 0.63 goals per game. One problem is that Dani Alves is left very exposed on the right flank as Messi doesn’t cover his space. (This is especially bad when Ivan Rakitic is not in the lineup as he is usually the one that covers Messi’s back whenever he decides to roam.) Also, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, the keeper, has taken a few risks too many, such as in Athletic’s first goal in which he came way off his line to head the ball straight to Mikel San Jose, who smacked right back over his head and into the net.

  • Why The FBI's Raid On Michael Cohen Is Bad News For Paul Manafort

    Special counsel Robert Mueller referred the Manhattan US attorney's office to information related to President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. That, may pose a setback for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. According to Business Insider, Manafort's defense strategy in the Russia probe argues Mueller overstepped his mandate by charging him with crimes unrelated to Russian collusion. However, experts say Mueller can turn and point to the Cohen referral as proof that when he comes across information outside his purview, he hands it off to the Department of Justice instead of pursuing it himself. The majority of the criminal charges against Manafort and his longtime associate Rick Gates relate to their lobbying work for the Ukrainian government and former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych. Gates pleaded guilty to two counts in February and became a cooperating witness in the Russia investigation. Manafort maintains that he is innocent and has mounted an aggressive defense against Mueller.
