Barcelona Look The Part

Frank Rijkaard could very well be in control of a juggernaut this season. After beating Espanyol 4-0 on aggregate to win the Spanish Super Cup, Barca went on to beat Bayern Munich 4-0 in their last friendly of the summer. Mind you, this was a Bayern squad that came into the game with two Bundesliga matches under it's belt, both wins. Barca fielded two different sides in each half and both looked capable of winning La Liga this season. Rijkaard's team is loaded and he'll have a top-class team to field in every competition, no matter who might be injured or suspended.

Barca line up against Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup on Friday in Monaco and open their La Liga campaign on Monday away to Celta Vigo.

Unstoppable (4-0) []
