Barcelona notches up another winOctober 8, 2007
Barcelona convincingly beat Atletico de Madrid last night to claim the 3 points that put them in 2nd position in the league.
The first goal was in the 15th minute, when a mistake from the Atletico defence meant that Deco was able to score off a pass from Messi. Just a few minutes later the score went up to 2-0 when Messi charged forward with a pass from Henry and after a giving the ball briefly to Ronaldinho, the Argentinian put it in the net.
With 2 goals behind them Barcelona’s pace slowed a little and Atletico put Barcelona’s defence to the test. Goalkeeper Victor Valdes first test was 20 minutes into the second half, but the ball was wide and the score remained 2-0.
IT was Xavi who was able to mark the final goal of the match in the last few minutes, which was set up by Deco, Messi and dos Santos. Next match is Sunday 21 October – Villarreal v Barcelona.
Final score: 3-0
