In football, there is a popular saying. The offense wins games, but the defense wins championships. Barcelona’s performance in the recently finished season supports this theory.
Despite having Lionel Messi at the helm, the Blaugrana’s subpar defense has proven to be a constant stumbling block. They came within a whisker of winning the Liga, but a 2-1 defeat to Granada in April destroyed their hopes.
The Catalans were also eliminated from the Champions League in humiliating circumstances, losing 5-1 on aggregate to Paris Saint-Germain.
