Spain’s domestic football league, La Liga, has suddenly turned into an exciting affair in a matter of just a few weeks.
Barcelona were strolling to their second consecutive La Liga title this season as they took a 6 point lead over Atletico Madrid and a 7 point lead over Real Madrid with 7 games to go this season.
But the result in the El Classico along with the loss to Valencia at the Camp Nou have now seen the Catalan giants move level on points with Atletico Madrid and just a point away from Real Madrid with 5 games to go.
They were also knocked out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid and are having a really tough time this month.
The average performances of the team have now got to the individuals by the looks of it after the fresh controversy Neymar Jr has got himself into.
According to a video surfacing on the internet, the Brazilian superstar is seen using abusive language after showing frustration at left back Jordi Alba who ignored his call for a pass.
The whole rant went on for a few minutes in the game and the clip clearly shows the two players arguing about it.
Here is the footage that clearly shows the Brazil star using abusive language and shouting at his team-mate:
One of the biggest positives this season was the amount of pace and trickery the Barcelona team has got on the left flank.
Jordi Alba, with his relentless overlaps, provide Neymar with loads of space and his is a partnership that has helped the team a lot during the record-breaking run until the start of this month.
But an altercation between the same two people shows the amount of frustration that is building up at Camp Nou at this crunch stage in the season.
According to Marca‘s Edward Smith, there’s still a jovial atmosphere in the Barcelona camp and that the players are still getting along really well.
He also revealed that the Brazilian star is now sporting a new look and has got the whole squad chirping about it.
But his poor form will surely worry the Camp Nou franchise as they will need all their players at their best to retain the La Liga title come to the end of the season.
It was also suggested that the number of games Barcelona’s front three have played this season is fairly remarkable. Suarez, Messi, and Neymar have together played more minutes than any other attacking trio’s in the world and this will surely take a toll on the players.
But they will have to give their everything from now to the end of the season and come out of the season in glorious terms.
