Former Sevilla player Adriano has assured Barcelona fans that, although the club is seemingly not in good shape at present, there is still time left in this term to better the situation.

Barca – who have already been through painful defeats against Real Madrid this season – were forced to accept another setback in midweek, when they lost 3-0 to Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

The eventual 7-0 aggregate score line left a bad reflection on the Blaugrana, who surprisingly decided to face the Germans in the return leg without their star forward Lionel Messi.

But Adriano has asserted that the atmosphere within the team has improved, as the Copa del Rey semi-finalists intend to put back all their focus on La Liga.

Adriano told reporters: “We are feeling much better now.

“The way the semi-final went was a big blow to all of us. Everything seems black now, but the season is not over. 

“We still have to finish off the league.”

Barcelona presently lead La Liga standings with 85 points, sitting 11 points above rivals Real Madrid, with 33 games played.

This means that if ever Los Blancos fail to win on Saturday against Real Valladolid, Tito Vilanova’s men will only need three points at home against Real Betis to be crowned league champions in front of their own fans on Sunday.

Barcelona have not won any of their last three games in all competitions. Last weekend, they gave away a 2-1 lead to draw two all with Athletic Bilbao at the San Mames.
