Yes they were to some degree sent tumbling back to earth last year and yes, Bayern Munich did prove that Barca are just as susceptible to defeat as any other team now, but that by no means implies that they aren't capable of being crowned European champions.

Whilst Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, and Xavi remain at the height of their powers, Neymar has been bought in to add even more potency to an already world-class frontline. 

With a squad that's rivalled by only the very best in the world and recent European pedigree that places them at the summit of the continent, Barca are always going to be favourites to at least make the final.

They're the sort of team that all sides want to avoid in the knockout rounds, and unless they're given an incredibly hard run, they should be a certainty to reach the last-four.
