Messi 101

January 18, 2010

Barcelona and Sevilla must be absolutely sick of the sight of each other after having played the third match this year. The first two occasions were in the Copa del Rey, which saw FC Barcelona eliminated from the competition thanks to Sevilla’s away goal tally.

But on Saturday night at the Nou Camp Barça convincingly saw off the visitors in the rain with a comfortable 4-0 win, although the first goal was a long time coming – the goal came after Escudé deflected the ball into his own goal 4 minutes into the second half.

After that things really picked up for Barcelona, with Pedro scoring Barcelona’s second in minute 70 from a Xavi pass. And nearly 15 minutes later Messi made his mark, with his 100th goal for Barça. And the crowd chanting his name seems to have spurred him on; at the very last minute he scored his 101st goal for FC Barcelona.

1-0 Escudé, own goal (min 49)
2-0 Pedro (min 70)
3-0 Messi (min 84)
4-0 Messi (min 90)
