FC Barcelona Triumphs Against Athletic Bilbao

September 15th, 2014

FC Barcelona played an exciting game against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, winning the match thanks to 2 late goals from Neymar to win their third game of the season. Unusually the team played in the red and yellow stripes of the Catalan flag rather than the normal blaugrana kit, commemorating the three-hundredth anniversary of Barcelona falling to Spain on 11th September.

Both teams started off strongly but while Munir, Messi, and Pedro went on the attack for Barça, the visitors were keen to do the same. Despite a number of chances for Barça though the first half ended as the game had started, with neither team able to score.

Back on after the break Munir was soon replaced by Neymar, who proved to be decisive. Despite both he and Messi narrowly missing, finally in the 78th minute Messi set up Neymar for the first goal of the match. Five minutes later the same combination put Barcelona on 2 goals and seal wi victory for the Catalans.

1-0 Neymar (min 78)
2-0 Neymar (min 83)

Goal by Sandro sees Barcelona take 3 points against Villarreal

September 1st, 2014

Sunday saw FC Barcelona travel down to the Community of Valencia to face Villarreal at the Madrigal stadium for their second league match of the season.

With Iniesta out of action, Messi wore the captain’s armband and right from the start went on the offensive. However, the Villarreal defence remained tight and prevented the Catalans from scoring, with the home side coming close to going ahead themselves at the 25 minute mark. However, the first half ended the way it had started.

Back on after the break and Luis Enrique gave Neymar his opportunity in response to the hosts upping their attack on the Barça goal. However, it was only when Barça B player Sandro Ramírez came on that the Catalans were able to score at the 81st minute to give Barcelona a narrow victory to earn three points.

0-1 Sandro Ramírez (min 81)

Barça opens 2014/15 season with 3-0 win against Elche

August 25th, 2014

Messi and Munir helped FC Barcelona to their first win of the new season after facing Elche at the Nou Camp last night. The match was also the first league match for the club under Luis Enrique.

With high possession throughout, Barcelona controlled the game but despite some good efforts by Munir and Iniesta, it was not until the last five minutes of the first half that Lionel Messi finally opened the scoring. Immediately after the visitors created their own opportunity and although Mascherano stopped the attack, he earned himself a red card for doing so.

Back on after the break with one man down, Barcelona continued the pressure, which was quickly rewarded with a goal by new boy Munir; as a product of La Masia he cost the club nothing in transfer fees and is able to play. And after another quarter of an hour and the match was sealed, with another superb effort by Messi.

While Elche is hardly the toughest team Barcelona will play they at least started off the new season showing how they can play.

1-0 Messi (min 41)
2-0 Munir (min 46)
3-0 Messi (min 63)

Barcelona beats Club Leon in 2014 Gamper Trophy

August 19th, 2014

Messi opened the scoring for FC Barcelona last night when the Catalans played their first home match under Luis Enrique and the new look Barça was officially introduced.

With many locals away on holiday, the stadium was rather empty and many in the crowd tourists. However, that didn’t stop Barça from putting in a show for everyone who attended. As well as the Messi opener, Neymar scored two and Munir, up from Barça B scored two more. The final goal of the match was scored by Sandro Ramírez just a couple of minutes from the end,

The match also marked the debut of Luis Suarez, controversially signed after biting a player during the World Cup in Brazil. While he can play in friendly matches, his suspension will see him out of action for the start of the season. He had better do more than he did last night to justify the amount spent on him though.

2-0 Neymar (min 11)
3-0 Neymar (min 43)
4-0 Munir (min 53)
5-0 Munir (min 76)

Barça draws with Nice in 2nd pre-season friendly

August 3rd, 2014

After spending last week training in England, FC Barcelona travelled to Nice for their second summer friendly.

With 10 starting players from the first team squad and just a single B team player, Barça demonstrated their usual high possession and showed what we might expect of them in the forthcoming season.

All the same, it was Nice that scored the opener from the penalty spot after a foul by Pique, but despite a number of opportunities the Catalans failed to score.

Luis Enrique made seven changes after the break, but it was not until the visitors were awarded a penalty kick that Xavi put the ball in the back of the net. In the end the score remained level at 1-1.
