Ernesto Valverde is under mounting pressure as Barcelona managed a boring scoreless draw against Slavia Prague.

In a game that saw Barcelona manage only six shots on goal, Ernesto Valverde is approaching the point of no return as Barcelona’s manager.

The point is as good as a victory for the Czech Republic who got only their second point of the Champions League group stages.

But for Barcelona, it is totally unacceptable.

After the weekends La Liga defeat to Levante, Barca was looking to bounce back, but they are their fans were left disappointed yet again.

This was by no means a weakened Barcelona side. The team included a front three of Messi, Dembele, and Griezmann.

It must be said, Ondrej Kolar did have an excellent game in the Slavia goal.

While at the other end Marc-Andre ter Stegen did not have a single shot on target to deal with.

Valverde even introduced teenage sensation Ansu Fati in hope of some inspiration, but to no avail.

Final Score: Barcelona 0 – 0 Slavia Prague.

According to the BBC, the Catalonians enjoyed 67 percent possession. The most concerning factor is, their inability to convert such domination into a victory.

It will be no surprise, if Valverde is no longer the Barcelona manager come the next Champions League game against Borussia Dortmund on November 27th.

The fans have had their fill of Ernesto Valverde.
