Late comeback against Almeria provides Barça winNovember 10, 2014
Barcelona visited Almeria on Saturday looking to bounce back from their recent form and with Neymar and Suarez starting on the bench it was only thanks to two late goals from Neymar and Jordi Alba that turned around the match after going a goal down in the first half.
Barcelona’s first real chance was in the 28th minute when Rakitic and Messi both had had headers stopped. However, Messi’s threat to the Almeria goal in the 37th minute ended with the Almeria defence taking possession and ended with Thievy scoring for the home side.
With Neymar and Suarez on after the break Almeria was as aggressive as ever. Barcelona upped their game and saw a chance when Suarez crossed to Neymar, who put it into Almeria’s net to equalise. With the Catalans energised by this, Alba was able to land another goal in with the help of Suarez and three points in the bag.
1-0 Thievy (min 36)
1-1 Neymar (min 71)
1-2 Jordi Alba (min 80)
