Victory against Celta sees new record for Barça

November 5th, 2012

Saturday night saw a new record created by FC Barcelona after they won their ninth match in 10 games when they played Celta at the Nou Camp.

The Catalans came on looking strong, dominating possession and looking like they meant business. Back in defence there was no Abidal or Piqué, while Puyol is going to be off for some time still after his horrific elbow dislocation.

The first goal came in the 20th minute from Adriano, set up by Pedro. However, soon after Mario Bermejo soon equalised for Celta. Barcelona quickly struck back though, when David Villa scored in the 25th minute to make it 2-1.

In the second half Villanova brought on Bartra in place of Cesc Fabregas to bolster Barça’s defence. Equally, Celta’s defence seemed difficult to break and it was only in the 60th minute when David Villa and Jordi Alba broke through to score. In the final half-hour the home team controled the balll with little sign of trouble, ending the game 3-1.

Barça’s new record was not the only cause for celebration. On Friday it was widely reported that Lionel Messi became a father for the first time.

1-0 Adriano (min 20)
1-1 Mario Bermejo (min 23)
2-1 Villa (min 25)
3-1 Jordi Alba (min 60)

Hard fought clasico ends in draw

October 8th, 2012

Barcelona went into the classico on Sunday night 8 points ahead of Real Madrid, having won all six of their previous league matches this season. The match saw them without Carles Puyol, after his horrific arm injury suffered during the Champions League during the week, and Gerard Pique.

There were a couple of apparent penalties that were not called by the ref and a spectacular shot that struck the bar in the closing minutes of the match that would have given all three points to Barcelona, but at the end of the day the Catalans walked away remaining eight points ahead.

The first goal came from Cristiano Ronaldo in the 22nd minute, with an uncomfortable amount of play in the Barça half. However, five minutes later Leo Messi scored for Barcelona to make it 1-1.

After the break Barcelona dominated and at the hour mark Messi scored from a free kick outside the box, putting Barça ahead. However, elation didn’t last long as Cristiano Ronaldo scored five minutes later to equalise.

At the end of the match Montoya shot from outside the box and it looked as it is if it was going to go in. However, but it struck bar and bounced out, leaving the score 2-2.

0-1 Ronaldo (min 22)
1-1 Messi (min 29)
2-1 Messi (min 60)
2-2 Ronaldo (min 65)

October 1st, 2012

Real Madrid won decisively agains Deportivo, but remain 8 points behind Barça. However, the first big showdown happens next weekend when Madrid travels to the Nou Camp.

Barcelona claws back victory against Sevilla

October 1st, 2012

Barcelona clawed back a 2-0 deficit on Saturday night against Sevilla to win the match in injury time and hold on to their unbeaten run in the league this season. Although the Catalans appeared to be in control of the match early on and a couple of good chances for Pedro and Messi, it was Sevilla who opened the scoring in the 25th minute. The first half ended 1-0 to the home team, but soon Sevilla were 2-0 up thanks to Negredo.

However, the Barcelona squad kept their heads and Cesc Fabregas soon scored the first for Barcelona, and several chances being created but the goals just didn’t come.

The icing on the cake though was David Villa’s goal in the 92nd minute to give Barcelona the lead and an unbroken run of six matches won.
