Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer not obsessing over scoring first goal

Luis Enrique stresses the difficulty of Barcelona winning against any club in Group C, especially away from home.

Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer insists he's not obsessing about the goalless start he's made to life at his new club.

The former Valencia frontman has played four games for Barca so far, starting two of them, including the midweek 2-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League.

However, he was taken off after just 53 minutes in Germany and there's been criticism that he looked lost in an unfamiliar position on the right of a front three.

Former Barcelona star Luis Suarez has criticised Luis Enrique's decision to play Paco Alcacer out wide during Wednesday's 2-1 Champions League win over Borussia Monchengladbach.

Alcacer, a €30 million summer signing from Valencia, was selected to fill the gap left by the injured Lionel Messi in Germany, starting alongside Neymar and Barca's present-day Luis Suarez in the front three.

Jeremy Mathieu will not play for France in October after initially being named to the squad.

France coach Didier Deschamps has replaced Jeremy Mathieu with Valencia's Eliaquim Mangala despite insisting the Barcelona defender is "not finished" when he originally named him in the squad for October's World Cup qualifiers.

"After an exchange with Mathieu, the coach has decided not to keep the Barcelona player in the squad for the next gathering of the France team," a brief statement from the French Football Federation confirmed on Friday.

Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis drops in on Barcelona training

With his band in town for two nights as part of their European tour, Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis took time out of his busy schedule to make a surprise visit to the Barcelona training complex.

Kiedis was accompanied by his young son Everly, who was presented with his very own personalised Barca shirt by Neymar as part of the deal.
