In contrast to the previous two years Barcelona have enjoyed the calm of a summer without major changes on and off the pitch after claiming a second treble in six years.So what can stop a settled Barca side containing a front three of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar who scored a record 122 goals on the way to winning the Champions League, Copa del Rey and La Liga last season?Pique was sent off for losing his cool with the officials in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Athletic as Barca's hopes of winning six trophies in a calendar year slipped away.As a result he is likely to be suspended when Barca return to San Mames to face Athletic on the first day of the season and for the trip to Atletico Madrid on Sept. 12 .Having won five titles in the past seven years, Barca remain the team to beat in La Liga.
