This has been a tumultuous week in FC Barcelona, with some troubling news off the pitch.
But the team is focused on getting things better on the pitch as they prepare for their upcoming Copa Del Rey semi-final second leg match against Sevilla.
The Andalusian side leads the first leg 2-0 after putting up a fine display in Seville last month.
They have the advantage to advance into the final as they prepare for the return leg at the Camp Nou on Wednesday.
Despite a first-leg deficit, there is still a bit of hope that the Blaugrana can hold on to.
This will help them remain hopeful as they look to overturn the deficit. It is the remarkable record of Lionel Messi against Los Rojiblancos.
Lionel Messi scored against the same opponent during the weekend in the league, making it his 38th goal in 42 appearances against Sevilla.
He has also won 30 of the 42 games, drawing seven and losing only five, two of which are Copa losses.
The Barcelona forward has scored three hat tricks and netted seven braces against Sevilla. Another source of hope is the comeback from two seasons ago, where the Blaugrana came from behind in the first leg to win the return game 6-1.
Barcelona is one leg out of the UEFA Champions League after a 4-1 first leg at PSG.
They are also behind Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in the league.
The Copa Del Rey is somewhat their last hope for a trophy this season, and they wouldn’t want to bow out just yet.
