Barça bounces back against DeportivoMarch 10, 2013
Barcelona bounced back from the disappointment of the recent clasicos and gained a well needed victory ahead of their Champions League match against AC Milan on Tuesday.
Of course Deportivo is currently bottom of the table and nowhere near being in the same class as either Real Madrid or AC Milan, but despite several key players started on the bench the Catalans started well. However, they failed to do much with the opportunities they created until finally, some eight minutes before the break, Alexis scored with his head from an Alves cross.
The second half saw them with fewer opportunities, but when Messi, Iniesta and Busquets come on the opportunities began. Messi scored, only to have the goal ruled offside, but the Argentine player made it 2-0 in the closing minutes of the match.
1-0 Alexis (min 37)
2-0 Messi (min 87)
