GAME PREVIEW


And so ends the Luis Enrique era at Barcelona; probably with a trophy, but not on the note the former midfielder would have hoped for after a stunning first season in which his team claimed every major trophy on offer in a style that rivalled the best of the Pep Guardiola years.

Three years is a pretty good lifespan for a manager at the top level nowadays, and Luis Enrique goes out with two league titles, a Champions League and a shot on Saturday at a second Copa del Rey. It is the kind of haul most coaches dream of.

But despite that relative success he leaves with many fans happy to turn the page to whatever is next, even if the prospect of Athletic Club coach Ernesto Valverde taking the reins does not seem totally inspiring.

The next few years are going to be difficult to navigate for Barcelona; they are going to need to continue to get younger in defence and midfield as well as finding a way to bring Neymar to the fore in a manner that complements Lionel Messi and also persuades the Brazilian his long-term future is at Camp Nou.

Beyond their biggest stars, Real Madrid have been able to count on mid-20s players such as Isco, Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Raphael Varane this season while Paco Alcacer, Andre Gomes and Arda Turan have largely flopped in Catalonia.

Injecting the group with some new life in one way or another will be a key task for Valverde or whoever else steps into the Camp Nou dugout next.
