Ronald Koeman is currently feeling the pressure as head coach of Barcelona after losing two games in a row in the Spanish Primera Division.

SECURE (FOR NOW): Ronald Koeman

Last weekend Barcelona were on the wrong side of a 1-0 loss against Getafe, which was their first league defeat under the tenure of new head coach, Koeman.

Luckily for the Blaugrana, Real Madrid also lost that weekend, against Cadiz, which softened the blow a bit.

With both Clasico sides coming into the huge match on Saturday versus each other, neither were enjoying stellar form.

In the end, it was Real Madrid who ran out 3-1 winners in an empty Camp Nou, with Koeman blaming refereeing decisions afterwards.

His job is safe for now, though.

SLIGHTLY INSECURE: Niko Kovac

New Monaco boss Niko Kovac enjoyed a good start to his career in Monte Carlo, winning two out of his first three Ligue 1 matches.

However, since then he has only won one out of the last five, with their latest defeat coming at the hands of Lyon this past weekend.

Monaco's downturn in form has left them in 12th in the table, and although there is nothing to panic about just yet, he will need to break them from this run of form fairly quickly before the club's trigger happy hierarchy begin to lose patience.
