As everyone knows the summer soccer betting action will be dominated by the colossal Euro Cup. But for anyone soccer betting fan that is already looking forward to placing a soccer bet in the upcoming domestic season, and especially in Spain, the giant Catalan club of Barcelona is set to make some big changes this off season.
Soccer betting is full of iconic clubs but the Catalans belong to the absolute top tier of soccer betting royalty, rivaled in global popularity by only a handful of clubs. In fact, almost anyone that has ever made a soccer bet knows about Barca. But with that type of heritage and soccer betting success expectations are high and this year’s third place finish in the Primera Liga combined with a quarterfinals knockout in the Champions soccer betting will all but guarantee big changes in the soccer bet off-season.
One is all but certain in terms of soccer betting, and that is that most fans of the Catalans will not be seeing Ronaldinho in the red and blue stripes next season. The former FIFA world player of the year is bound for other pastures and has certainly made his last soccer betting appearance at the Nou Camp -at least as a member of Barcelona. The team president has already stated it’s time to move on and anyone that has made a soccer bet on the team has heard Ronaldinho’s grumblings all soccer betting season long.
But the Brazilian’s play has dropped off considerably in the past two years and so the move seems practical from a soccer betting perspective. The team is obviously looking to build around soccer betting sensation Lionel Messi and he’s a worthy building block. Gone too, could be Barca mainstay in the attack, Deco. The Portuguese player has also been rumored to be heading to other soccer betting pastures, as has fellow mid-fielder Xavi.
While it’s hard to know exactly who will replace the many departures, anyone that knows soccer betting knows that Barcelona will spare no expense and pursue only the best players that money can buy.
