Barcelona through to next round of Champions League

December 10th, 2009

Barcelona beat Dynamo Kiev last night to go through to the next round of Champions League (which we said incorrectly after their last Champions League match – in the heat of the moment we completely lost the ability to add up accurately – sorry!).

Barça went done almost immediately in the cold of Kiev with a first minute goal from Milevskiy. However the team didn’t lose its head and by consistently working the pitch they took control when the opportunity came; Xavi scored in minute 33, which suddenly tipped the scales in Barcelona’s favour due to goal average.

Continuing to work to the end, Barcelona started to suffer from increasingly hard play, encouraged by the ref’s reluctance to show cards. Messi put the second goal just four minutes from the end from a free kick; but he suffered afterwards when he was brought down hard and clearly in a lot of pain.

1-0 Milevskiy (min 1)
1-1 Xavi (min 33)
1-2 Messi (min 86)

Barça holds point advantage

December 7th, 2009

FC Barcelona held their point advantage over real Madrid after a 3-1 away win against Deportivo. However, despite the number of goals, Deportivo held their own until the ast 10 minutes – Barça went ahead in minute 27 with a Messi goal, but Deportivo scored 12 minutes later and it wasn’t until minute 80 that Messi recovered the lead.

Barcelona are currently five points ahead of Real Madrid, but they have played one extra match due to participating in the Club World Cup. Their first match will be played on December 16 in Abu Dhabi .

El Clasico leaves Barça back on top

November 30th, 2009

Barcelona took over the top spot from Real Madrid last night after beating them 1-0 at the Nou Camp. It’s been a spectacular week for Barça after qualifying for the next Champions League round earlier in the week.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the only goal of the match in the 55th minute after being brought on to replace Thierry Henry a tough match was made even harder when Buesquets received his second yellow card for handball with 30 minutes remaining. Madrid’s Lassana Diarra was also sent off in the 90th minute, too late to make any impact on the match.

1-0, Ibrahimovic (min 55)


Barça through to next round

November 25th, 2009

FC Barcelona secured their place in the next Champions League round after a convincing defeat of Inter Milan combined with a draw between the other two teams. Samuel Eto’o made his first return to the Nou Camp since departing Barcelona and made a point of greeting some of his old team mates.

Barça were clearly playing to win and the payoff came after ten minutes with Pique scored the first goal of the match. Five minutes later they came close to goal number two, but it went over the next insetad; and in the 26th minute Pedro scored the second and final goal of the match. The closest they got again was in the second half when ALves passed to Xavi who headed the ball towards the goal; but it wasn’t to be.

Inter got away with playing it rough, with Puyol receiving a bodycheck  that went unpunished, although it was after an admittedly rough tackle; and Iniesta was knocked down hard, again without punishment.

Real Madrid lead ahead of “El clàssic”

November 22nd, 2009

FC Barcelona dropped into second place in the league last night after their draw against Athletic de Bilbao and a Real Madrid win put their arch rivals one point ahead.

With a number of key players out of action, Barça sometimes struggled to find space and while Leo Messi came close to scoring in the first half it wasn’t until the 54rd minute that Xavi put the ball into the area for Dani Alves to score. However, just 9 minutes later Athletic equalised when Toquero took the ball through a confused Barça defence to put the ball beyond the reach of Victor Valdes.

Copa del Rey: Barça through, Real Madrid knocked out

November 11th, 2009

Last night’s 5-0 defeat of Cultural Leonesa was in stark contrast with Real Madrid, who were knocked out of the Copa del Rey by lowly Alcorcon; despite beating Alcorcon 1-0 at the Bernabeu, Madrid lost 4-1 on aggregate and were jeered by their own fans.

Barça on the other hand went through with flying colours in the cold that has descended on Barcelona. In retrospect the first half seems like it was merely a warm up, with all five of Barcelona’s goals being scored in the second 45 minutes.

1-0 Bojan (min 50)
2-0 Bojan (min 54)
3-0 Pedro(min 62)
4-0 Messi (min 64)
5-0 Xavi (min 74)

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)
