The 2016/17 season was a significant one for FC Barcelona, marked by moments of brilliance as well as disappointment. Here's an overview of their performance across different competitions:
La Liga: In La Liga, Barcelona finished second, three points behind Real Madrid. Despite a strong push towards the end of the season and a victory in the El Clásico at the Santiago Bernabeu, they were unable to overtake their rivals in the title race.
Copa del Rey: Barcelona found success in the Copa del Rey, winning the competition by defeating Alavés in the final with a score of 3-1. This victory secured them a domestic cup and provided some consolation for missing out on the league title.
UEFA Champions League: The UEFA Champions League campaign for Barcelona in the 2016/17 season was a rollercoaster. They produced one of the most memorable comebacks in football history against Paris Saint-Germain in the Round of 16, overturning a 4-0 first-leg deficit to win 6-5 on aggregate. However, their journey ended in the quarter-finals, where they were eliminated by Juventus, who managed to keep Barcelona scoreless over two legs.
Supercopa de España: Barcelona contested the Supercopa de España against Sevilla at the start of the season, securing the trophy with an aggregate win of 5-0 over two legs. This early victory set a positive tone for the season.
Squad and Key Players:
- Lionel Messi continued to be the star of the team, finishing as the top scorer in La Liga with 37 goals.
- Luis Suárez and Neymar were also crucial in the attacking trident known as 'MSN', contributing significantly to the team's offensive prowess.
- Andrés Iniesta and Sergio Busquets provided experience and control in midfield.
Coaching: The season was Luis Enrique's last as head coach of Barcelona. He announced his decision to step down in March 2017, and his tenure concluded with the Copa del Rey final victory.
Style of Play: Barcelona continued to play their trademark style of possession-based football with an emphasis on attacking play. The front trio of Messi, Suárez, and Neymar was among the most feared in the world, known for their intricate passing and lethal finishing.
Conclusion: The 2016/17 season was mixed for Barcelona. While they showcased moments of the spectacular, particularly in the Champions League against PSG, they were unable to claim the league title and fell short in Europe. The season also marked the end of an era with the departure of Luis Enrique and set the stage for a period of transition within the club.
