La Liga: In La Liga, Barcelona finished second, five points behind Real Madrid. The team showed strong performances in the first half of the season under manager Ernesto Valverde, but a dip in form led to his dismissal in January 2020. Quique Setién was appointed as his replacement, but he struggled to impose his style and achieve consistency. The suspension of the league due to the COVID-19 pandemic further complicated matters, and upon resumption, Barcelona could not maintain their momentum and eventually lost the title race to Real Madrid.
UEFA Champions League: Barcelona's UEFA Champions League campaign was marked by one of the most stunning defeats in the club's history. They reached the quarter-finals but were eliminated by Bayern Munich in an 8-2 rout. This heavy loss raised serious questions about the team's direction, structure, and aging squad.
Copa del Rey: Barcelona was surprisingly knocked out of the Copa del Rey in the quarter-finals by Athletic Bilbao. This meant that the 2019/20 season was the first since 2007/08 that Barcelona did not win any major trophy.
Managerial Changes: The season saw a significant change on the managerial front. Ernesto Valverde was sacked midway through the season despite having won back-to-back league titles in the previous two seasons. His replacement, Quique Setién, a proponent of possession-based football, was unable to turn the team's fortunes around.
- Lionel Messi: Continued to be the team's standout performer, finishing as the top scorer in La Liga.
- Luis Suárez: Provided crucial goals but his season was disrupted by injury.
- Gerard Piqué, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba: Experienced players who faced criticism due to the team's inconsistent performances.
Impact of COVID-19: The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact, causing the suspension of football activities. The financial implications were also substantial, affecting the club's transfer activities and broader strategic planning.
Conclusion: The 2019/20 season for Barcelona was a tumultuous one. It highlighted the need for a squad overhaul and a rethinking of the club's footballing philosophy. The historic defeat in the Champions League served as a wake-up call, leading to further changes in the managerial position and within the squad in the subsequent season.
