Goalless draw in Champions League

November 5th, 2009

Barça are now in third place in Group F of the Champions League after a goalless draw against Rubin Kazan in freezing conditions, while elsewhere Inter Milan beat Dynamo Kiev 2-1.

Once again Barcelona dominated the match, but once again they were unable to do little with that dominance. Ibrahimovic struck the post in the 3rd minute and there were plenty of attempts on the goal; but lady luck wasn’t with Barça.

The final two matches of the group stage will be played on 24th November and 9th December against Inter Milan and Dynamo Kiev respectively. Realistically Barcelona need to win both to go through – something that is well within their ability.

Barça slip leaves them one point clear

November 2nd, 2009

With just seconds remaining before the final whistle it looked like Barcelona had it in the bag; then an error by Marquez resulted in a cross from Camuñas being deflected into his own goal by Piqué, for a final score of 1-1 against Osasuna.

The result leaves Barça one point clear of real Madrid, after their own victory against Getafe; a result Madrid’s manager, Manuel Pellegrini, was looking for with much talk about how much longer he will last.

Barcelona are off to Kazan this week for their Champions League return match against Rubin Kazan on Wednesday. This is going to be a challenging match; after Barça’s shock defeat at the Nou Camp in October they will be playing in sub-zero temperatures leaving the home team with a clear advantage.

0-1 Keita (min 71)
1-1 Camuñas (min 92)

Pedro scores 2 for Barça

October 29th, 2009

Pedro was the star of the squad last night as FC Barcelona beat Cultural Leonesa in an away match for the Copa del Rey.

Pep Guardiola was fielding a squad with 6 regulars resting and Pinto in place of Valdes – with a close to full strength team, things went very wrong for Real Madrid on Tuesday night when they were thrashed 4-0 by lightweight Alcorcon, so this could have been a risky strategy and the Copa del Rey often springs surprises.

The return match will be on November 10-12 (to be confirmed) and the winner will play either Real Madrid or Alcorcon. Tickets for Barcelona v Cultural Leonesa are now available.

0-1 Pedro (min 40)
0-2 Pedro (min 52)

Barça bounce back

October 26th, 2009

Barcelona put their woes behind them on Sunday night with a spectacular 6-1 victory over Zaragoza.

Stunned by their midweek defeat by Rubin Jazan in the Champions League, they rebounded to hammer the visitors. Keita scored a hat-trick, with Ibrahimovic scoring two more to make him the league’s joint top scorer (with Valencia’s David Villa) and a goal from a Lionel Messi chip.

Elsewhere, Real Madrid’s goalless draw against Sporting Gijon was perhaps the most unexpected result of the weekend, allowing Barça to open up their lead over their arch-rival to three points.

1-0, Keita (min 24)
2-0, Ibrahimovic (min 28)

Shock defeat for Barça

October 21st, 2009

It all went very wrong for Barça last night in a shock 2-1 defeat by Rubin Kazan.

The Russian team put in the first goal of the night right at the start of the match, when Aleksandr Ryazantsev surprised Victor Valdes with a shot from 30 metres. However, Barça dominated possession and it looked like it was going their way when Ibrahimovic scored right after the break.

Despite nearly 80% possession in the second half the next goal wasn’t a breakthrough for Barcelona. Instead a Karadeniz counter-attack resulted in a second goal for the visitors and the first loss for Barça this season.

Elsewhere, Inter Milan were held to a 1-1 draw by Dynamo Kiev, leaving Barça, Dynamo and Rubin Kazan on 4 points each and Inter on 3.

0-1 Ryazantsev (min 1)
1-1 Ibrahimovic (min 46)
1-2 Karadeniz (min 73)

Barça concedes two points

October 19th, 2009

FC Barcelona remain at the top of the Spanish League despite dropping their first points of the season.

Valencia were always likely to be one of the first serious obstacles to Barça this season, and they were out to prove it. Neither side fielded their star striker, with David Villa and Zlatan Ibrahimovic out of action and with Thierry Henry also out of action Iniesta was moved up front with Pedro and Messi.

Final score: 0-0

Madrid stumble leaves Barça at top

October 5th, 2009

The question this season has been, who was going to stumble first; FC Barcelona or Real Madrid?

While on paper Barcelona should have walked all over Almeria on Saturday night – last season they beat them 5-0 at the Nou Camp – they managed to break down the attack though fair means and foul, preventing Barça’s from getting through for the first half an hour. Xavi came close twenty minutes in, but it wasn’t until minute 31 that Pedro shot from inside the box to put Barcelona one goal up.

From then on the match continued pretty much as it had been, with Almeria’s heavy tactical fouling breaking up Barcelona’s fluency. After the break Almeria attempted to pick up the game and break into the Barcelona defence. However, they were unsuccessful, allowing the Catalans to keep the three points.

While Barça came close to stumbling, Madrid did for sure. Facing third placed Sevilla on Sunday night, it was always going to be a tough match. In the end Sevilla beat Real Madrid 2-1, leaving both teams on 15 points and Madrid in second place in the league thanks to the goal average.

1-0, Pedro (min 31)

Champions League: Barcelona beats Dynamo

September 30th, 2009

Barcelona took the top spot in Champions League Group F last night after a 2-0 win over Dynamo Kiev.

Despite the two goals from Barça, their killer edge seeming to be missing and much of the 90 minutes lacked excitement. With a strong defence from Dynamo and sluggish attack, it looked for a while like the match was going nowhere – and in minute 20 it looked like it might go the wrong way for Barça.

However, as frequently is the case, Leo Messi pulled something together and minute 25 saw the first goal of the match. With one goal behind them, the squad started to make some impact on the defence, only to be stopped by the keeper;  and then Dynamo got through, only to have it ruled offside .

In the second half Barça stepped up the pace slightly, although they failed to totally dominate as is their norm. Finally it was Pedro who scored the second goal of the match in minute 76, putting all the points beyond the reach of Dynamo and Barça on top of the Group.

1-0 Messi (min 25)
2-0 Pedro (min 75)

Barça neck and neck with Real Madrid

September 28th, 2009

Barcelona maintained their one hundred percent record of wins, with a 2-0 away victory against Malaga. Although the home team played some tough football, for most of the match they were resigned to defend.

But it wasn’t until Ibrahimovic came on to replace an injured Henry that the visitors scored. The Swede came on in minute 28 and 10 minutes later scored Barça’s first of the match off Messi. And it was Piqué, who also started the match on the bench, who made it 2-0, with a header off a Xavi free kick in minute 58.

0-1, Ibrahimovic (min 38)
0-2, Piqué (min 58)

At the top of the league Barça and Real Madrid are going head to head, with neither team having yet conceded a single point and each waiting for the other to stumble. In the end it is Madrid who are in the number 1 spot thanks to only having 2 goals scored against them compared with Barcelona’s 3.

Both have Champions League matches this week; Barça play Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday and Real Madrid play Olympique de Marseille on Wednesday. However, next weekend Barcelona play Almeria, currently 13th in the table, while Madrid play third placed Sevilla – could this be the stumble Barcelona have been waiting for?
