Barcelona won't be distracted by Guardiola return; too much at stake

The ESPN FC crew give their take on the SPI prediction that gives Barcelona a slight edge over Bayern Munich in the semifinals of the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola will be sitting on the wrong bench at the Camp Nou on Wednesday. Despite leaving his beloved Catalunya after only four seasons in charge and choosing to continue his professional career in Munich instead, Barcelona fans will never consider their former ball boy, captain and inspirational leader as an enemy.

Guardiola, born in Santpedor, is without a shadow of a doubt the club's best manager in over 115 years of history, the man who orchestrated the most attractive football the Camp...

Barcelona confident Dani Alves will stay on, Josep Maria Bartomeu says

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique was predictably delighted with his side's second-half performance after they hammered Cordoba 8-0 to maintain their lead at the top of La Liga.
Dani Alves' current Barcelona contract expires at the end of the season.
Dani Alves has started 27 games in La Liga for Barcelona this season, and the club hopes there will be more next year.

Barcelona are confident Dani Alves will remain at the club beyond the end of the season.

Alves, 31, has yet to sign a new deal despite his current contract expiring this summer.

The Brazil international right-back has been linked with Manchester United and Manchester City in recent months although Paris St Germain remain favourites for his signature.

"Alves is much closer to staying at the club than to leaving," Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said to Catalan TV station TV3. "We have asked...

Barcelona hit eight, Real Madrid keep pace - Five things learned from La Liga

The ESPN FC team continue their debate whether or not La Liga or the Premier League is the tougher league, following Barcelona's 8-0 win over Cordoba.
