Real Reason behind Barcelona Poor form

By Emmanuel Oladele - 
Barcelona seems to have been struggling since the restart of the Spanish La Liga, they have played six games, winning just three and draw three others.

Their average performance has brought them behind Real Madrid on the log with four points deficit.

The real reason behind Catalans average performance may be the age of top players in the team.
The age of top players in the team's first-eleven are 31 and above which shows that Barcelona are parading tired legs for their starting line-up which may have put them in the current situation they found themselves.

See the age of some top players in team;
• Lionel Messi - 33
• Gerard Pique - 33
• Arturo Vidal - 33
• Luis Suarez - 33
• Ivan Rakitic - 32
• Jordi Alba - 31
• Sergio Busquets - 31

Most of these seven stars are always in the starting eleven but old age is telling on them already, since the restart of the Spanish La Liga they have not reached their optimum performance as usual.

Barcelona will need to recruit more young players to change the ageing first eleven players.
