Defending, back-to-back Spanish La Liga champions FC Barcelona have come out of the gates sputtering this season, now sitting on just seven points after five games, in 8th place — one point behind their opponent in Tuesday’s midweek Round 6 showdown, Villarreal CF. The most obvious reason for the halting start to the season has been, as The Inquisitr reported, the absence of five-time Ballon D’or winner Lionel Messi, who missed the team’s first three league games with an injury. Messi came off the bench against Granada over the weekend, but could not help Barca get by Granada, who won 2-0. But everything may now change in the Tuesday match that will stream live from the Camp Nou.

Barcelona Coach Ernesto Valverde appears ready to grant Messi his first start of the 2019/2020 campaign on Tuesday, when Barca host “The Yellow Submarine,” according to a report by The Express newspaper. Valverde hopes that Messi’s calf injury is healed sufficiently to pull the champions out of their worst start in 25 years.
In addition to the Granada defeat, Barcelona also lost to Athletic Club Bilbao in the season opener, and slogged to a 2-2 draw with Osasuna. A 5-2 win over real Betis remains the only bright spot on Barcelona’s ledger so far.
