Last minute goal from Celta leaves Barça with a draw

April 2nd, 2013

Ahead of their Champions League match against Paris Saint Germain, Barcelona fielded a squad with a number of less familiar faces against Celta de Vigo on Saturday night, while Abidal appeared on the bench for the first time following his liver transplant last April.

Barça dominated possession in their usual manner they were prevented from doing much with the ball by Celta who started pressurising early on and eventually it was Celta who opened the scoring after 37 minutes. However, that lead didn’t last long, with Tello equalising for the Catalans 5 minutes later.

Back on after the break, it wasn’t until 20 minutes from time that Messi put Barcelona in the lead, meaning he has scored against every single team in Spain’s top league. However, Oubiña scored a few minutes before the end leaving Barça with a draw.

1-0 Natxo Insa (min 37)
1-1 Tello (min 42)
1-2 Messi (min 71)
2-2 Oubiña (min 86)


Barcelona beats Rayo 3-1

March 18th, 2013

After knocking out AC Milan from Champions League last week, FC Barcelona seems to be back on form and fully recovered from their dip in performance against Real Madrid recently.

It was the turn of Rayo Vallecano to visit the haloed turf of the Nou Camp and both sides went out of their way to score. Rayo is currently half way down the table, but came on playing to win. In the end though it was Barcelona, with Puyol and Xavi off through injury, who went ahead. First a goal from Villa and then from Messi a few minutes from the break. And back on again Messi again to make it 3.

Tamudo scored in the 69th minute for the visitors, but by then it was too late to stage a comeback and the match edned 3-1. With the first captains off through injury or, in the case of Victor Valdes, suspension the captaincy was handed to Inieta. When he came off the armband was handed to Leo Messi, his first ever time as Barça captain.

1-0 Villa (min 24)
2-0 Messi (min 39)
3-0 Messi (min 56)
3-1 Tamudo (min 69)

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)

Barça stages second half comeback to defeat Granada

February 18th, 2013

Barcelona notched up another 3 points in the Spanish league on Saturday after a 2-1 win against Granada. The hosts opened the scoring, with a goal from Ighalo in the 25th minute that saw the Catalans goalless at the break, but Lionel Messi scored 2 for Barça to turn the match around.

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.

However, back on after the break and Messi scored within a few minutes after the Granada keeper deflected a shot from Cesc. Meanwhile Barça upped the pressure and it only seemed a matter of time before they went into the lead; a goal from Pedro was disallowed, but finally, 72 minutes into the game Messi scored from a free kick.

1-0 Ighalo (min 25)
1-1 Messi (min 49)
1-2 Messi (min 72)
