To be considered the greatest of all time, trophies must be won. Luckily, this Barcelona team is in a great position to possibly win the treble.
It has already been mentioned that La Liga is firmly in Barcelona's grasp, and you can also read my article on why Barcelona has already won it. But, La Blaugrana also won their Champions League group and are soaring in the Copa del Rey.
The Catalan giants are favorites in both tournaments and if they succeed in securing the treble, it will be very difficult to not give them the title of "best team ever."
But we are not talking as if Barcelona can only win the treble due to luck. In fact, the treble is a real possibility.
With the form shown this season and all factors listed in previous slides, there is no way this side will not compete for a three-trophy season.
It must be admitted that this Barcelona team has a long way to go before we can call them the greatest ever. But with everything that has happened thus far, winning the treble would all but seal the deal.
The second half of the season will prove to be a very exciting, yet increasingly difficult time. La Blaugrana has a lot to prove to the world and to itself. But the club possesses everything needed to end the season as the greatest Barcelona side in history.
So can this season's Barcelona finish as the greatest of all time? Will they falter in the hunt for the treble? Or will this season simply go down as a great one, but not the best? Don't forget to leave your comments below!
