Barcelona are yet to recover from the semi final Champions League defeat to Liverpool four months ago, reports in claim.
According Spanish publications AS, Mundo Deportivo and La Vanguardia, via Sport Witness, some players have not recovered from one of the most painful defeats in the club’s history.
It is understood that new players who joined the club during the summer window including Antoine Griezmann are also feeling the effects of the Anfield syndrome.
The Spanish champions conceded three goals in seven minutes as Levante came from a goal down to defeat Barcelona over the weekend.
And the latest 0-0 draw against Sparta Pargue at the Camp Nou is another proof that Barca players are suffering from post traumatic stress, according to the Spanish media.
However, Barcelona still top La Liga with goal-difference and also lead their Champions League group with a point above Borussia Dortmund.
