Barcelona’s crisis deepened when the captains discussed the pitch during the Atletico match.

FC Barcelona lost 2-0 to La Liga title holders Atletico Madrid on Saturday, and it looks like the club’s bottom spiral is starting to turn toward each other. Co-captain Sergio Busquets and Gerard Pique were seen arguing openly after Atletico’s first goal at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

Barcelona’s defense was no match for Atletico Madrid’s attack, and the defenders stared at each other for clarification as the Los Colchoniers cut them like butter. Portuguese star Joao Felix launched the attack for the first goal, feeding Luis Suarez who in turn selected to eliminate Thomas Lemar.

The rapid and fully coordinated attack of the Atletico players left Barca’s defense hovering like a hen without a head. They could see everything because Mark-Andre Ter Stegen was beaten between the posts.
