Player to watch – Joao Felix

Joao Felix continues to divide opinion. At times he’s produced some fine football for Barcelona and was the star in their recent 1-0 home win over his parent club Atletico Madrid.

However since then, the Portuguese international has flattered to deceive. He was at fault for one goal after failing to close his man in the damaging defeat to Girona, although Felix did provide a simple finish to get on the scoresheet against Valencia on Saturday night.
