Ryan Rosenblatt for Fusion Soccer Gods:
Barcelona wasn’t just the best – Barcelona was a class above. The performances were clinical, yet conducted with incredible flair. The front line of Lionel Messi, Suárez, and Neymar proved unstoppable, Sergio Busquets reclaimed his place as the world’s best defensive midfielder, and Rakitić proved to be as good a signing as anyone made last summer. Andrés Iniesta and Xavi might as well have been afterthoughts, the rest of the team was so good, and Iniesta and Xai are never afterthoughts.
