Barça bounces back against Deportivo

March 10th, 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)

Valdes sees red as Barça loses second clasico inside a week

March 4th, 2013

Although Saturday afternoon’s clash with Real Madrid started going wrong after five minutes after Benzema put the hosts ahead, Messi equalised for the Catalans 12 minutes later.

Real Madrid had nothing really to gain on Barcelona, with a 16 point difference in the league, and with the Champions League clash against Manchester United on Tuesday rested some key players. Barça didn’t seem to be on top of things all the same, despite dominating possession.

However, 10 minutes from full time Ramos headed a corner past Victor Valdes to put Madrid back in the lead. But the defining moment of the match was when a clear penalty was denied after Adriano was brought down in the box. Iniesta was shown a yellow, while Valdes received a red after the final whistle for his protestations to the ref, which continued in the tunnel and for which he will received a lengthy ban.

1-0 Benzema (min 5)
1-1 Messi (min 17)
2-1 Sergio Ramos (min 81)

Barcelona beats Sevilla in cold night at the Nou Camp

February 25th, 2013

Saturday night was Sevilla’s turn to visit the Nou Camp in cold conditions that saw snow over much of Catalonia. It was also Barça’s first match after the dissappointment of defeat at the hands of AC Milan and so they had something to prove.

Although Barcelona dominiated possession throughout, the first half ended with the visitors in the lead after a goal in the 41st minute by Botía, one of the only real challenges they had on the Barcelona goal.

However, after the break Barcelona came on with renewed determination to make something happen; the fans didn’t have long to wait with David Villa scoring with his head just six minutes in to the second half from a Dani Alves cross. And then, just a few minutes later Messi put the Catalans in the lead with the final goal of the match.

0-1 Botía (min 41)
1-1 Villa (min 51)
2-1 Messi (min 59)

Right from the start Granada were able to disrupt the flow of the game, but soon the visitors began to get into their stride and dominate possession. However, despite their best efforts they were unable to score.

Goals galore against Getafe

February 11th, 2013

It was goals galore at the Nou Camp on Sunday after noon when Getafe visited the stadium for a match that was unusual in that it kicked off at midday. Attendence was one of the best of the season so far and many children taken to watch Barça play. And what a treat they were in for!

Alexis opened the scoring after 5 minutes, with Messi putting the Catalans two goals ahead at the 12 minute mark and looked to have the match completely under control. All the same, it wasn’t until the second half that the next goal came, scored by David Villa to make it 3-0 and pretty much wrap the game up. However, despite the pace slowing, Tello scored a fourth for Barça 20 minutes later.

Entering the closing phase of the match Getafe were able to strike back, with Álvaro scoring one for the visitors in the 82nd minute. But the Catalans had not yet finished and two more, from Iniesta and Piqué put the final score at 6-1.

1-0 Alexis (min 5)
2-0 Messi (min 12)
3-0 Villa (min 57)
4-0 Tello (min 77)
4-1 Álvaro (min 82)
5-1 Iniesta (min 89)
6-1 Piqué (min 91)
