Barcelona may have beaten Slavia Prague on Wednesday night, but they weren’t convincing during their 2-1 victory.
Will Barcelona win La Liga this season?
Ernesto Valverde’s team narrowly outdid the Czech club in terms of possession and their pass success rate, but Slavia had 11 more shots than Barcelona did, getting two more on target, as per WhoScored.
The Blaugrana even had to rely on an own goal just before the hour mark to hand them the three points, after allowing the opposition to equalise:

This win may have seen Barcelona remain at the top of their Champions League group, but it still hasn’t got the team or manager in the good books of many fans, as they are disgusted by the level of performance that was shown.
The ways the team has been described following the game’s culmination includes: a joke, shameful, lucky to win and boring.
In the minds of many fans, it is not enough to simply win at Barcelona, they must do it with a style that wasn’t shown in Prague.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the performance, including posts from disgusted Barcelona fans, can be seen below:
It was a terrible game for us, any other manager with these players would go there and win 5-0
