Enrique's Barca to answer key questions against Sevilla

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti doesn't think Lionel Messi will be leaving Barcelona any time soon.

Following yet another seemingly endless international break, Cules are counting the very few hours left until the ball starts rolling again at the Camp Nou. After a fortnight in which the media has been firmly focused on off-the-pitch issues, manager Luis Enrique will certainly be delighted to have the chance to take another step forward towards refining his team in the hope of silencing his growing number of critics.

The most heated talking point ahead of the home match against Sevilla on Saturday...

Messi must remain key to Barcelona's future

The Supercopa has produced few moments more memorable than the fierce rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona during 2010-2012.

Lionel Messi has spoken about his Barcelona future, and for the first time in his career, he has failed to deny he might move away from the Camp Nou. Hearing the top goal-scorer in more than 113 years toying with the idea of leaving the club at 27 years of age is definitely not a pleasant experience, especially considering the key role he continues to play on a daily basis, both on and off the pitch.

Messi has been outstanding for Barca since he joined their world-famous La Masia academy as a...

With his future at stake, Gerard Pique must reverse his recent struggles

Gerard Pique has found himself replaced in Barca's preferred lineup and must act quickly to turn things around.

Whether he likes it or not, the truth is that Gerard Pique receives much more media attention than the average football player, especially since his high-profile relationship with Colombian pop star Shakira was made public in 2010.

At 27 years of age, the Catalan centre-back has already accumulated an impressive 19 trophies and numerous individual awards, including three inclusions in the FIFPro World XI, for a résumé that most professionals could only dream of.

Despite Pique's contributions...

How Alexis Sanchez became the Premier League's new Luis Suarez

ESPN FC's Santi Solari and Paul Mariner discuss the similarities between Alexis Sanchez and Luis Suarez and question if Sanchez can attain the same level of success Suarez achieved in the Premier League.

When Luis Suarez decided to swap Liverpool for Barcelona after yet another tumultuous summer of transfer speculation, the Uruguayan left a yawning gap in quality to be filled in the Premier League. Liverpool have not filled that gap -- not with Mario Balotelli, not with Rickie Lambert, not with Lazar Markovic. However, Arsenal -- for all their defensive problems -- managed to do so with the signing of Chilean Alexis Sanchez for 35 million euros as he departed the Camp Nou.

Time with Spain beneficial for those on the fringes at Barcelona

Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque believes his side was in total control of its 3-0 win over Belarus in Euro 2016 qualifying.

It may have been a fairly straightforward 3-0 victory for Spain over Belarus in Huelva on Saturday night, but apart from it producing a much-needed fillip for the national side, it was also a good night for Barcelona, as four players currently experiencing differing levels of form all had a positive evening.

The international break has given Luis Enrique time to sort out the malaise at the club after defeats in the Santiago Bernabeu and at home to Celta Vigo before a far from convincing win over...

Football's finest rivals: Barcelona vs. Real Madrid 2010-12

The Supercopa has produced few moments more memorable than the fierce rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona during 2010-2012.

ESPN FC assesses the greatest rivalries in football, focusing on the teams who, together, challenged at the very peak of the sport over a period of years. After Pep Guardiola established perhaps the greatest Barcelona side in history, Jose Mourinho was installed to kick-start the Real Madrid revival.

The second dream team vs. the second coming

On the eve of the 2010-11 Champions League semifinal second leg, Pep Guardiola uttered a few quiet words that seemed out of place with all the sound and the...
