Barcelona boosted for cup final by Ronaldo injury 0

Posted on April 16, 2014 by admin

FC Barcelona have enough problems on their hands without having to deal with Cristiano Ronaldo, so Tata Martino and his players will have received the injury update from Carlo Ancelotti with open arms. Ronaldo is still out of action with what is being reported as tendonitis or a muscular problem in the thigh.

Andres Iniesta and other Barcelona players have refused, publicly at least, to accept that Real Madrid will be significantly weakened by this, as they have the likes of Isco, Di Mari and Morata who could take his place, but they must be pretty glad of the news really.

Barcelona MUST take advantage of Costa injury 0

Posted on April 01, 2014 by admin

The Champions League draw threw up a clash between the top two teams in La Liga, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, which many think will be the tie of the round. And the fact that Diego Simeone’s team play the second leg at their home ground gives them a slight advantage, with the Vicente Calderon being a notoriously hard place to go.

So Barcelona must make the most of the injury that Madrid’s powerful and prolific striker Diego Costa picked up in training yesterday. The Brazilian born forward would have caused Barca a major problem, especially without the unlucky Victor Valdes who is out for the season.

Barcelona lose Xavi for crucial clash with Celta Vigo 0

Posted on March 26, 2014 by admin

Barcelona know that the famous derby win over Real Madrid on Sunday will probably count for nothing more than bragging rights unless they continue in that form and retain their La Liga crown. So it is not good news that they face a crucial game against Celta Vigo without the brilliant and experienced Xavi Hernandez in the squad, according to Mundo Deportivo.

At least the game is at the Nou Camp, where the crowd will be a huge help as they celebrate the victory over arch rivals Real Madrid. Tata Martino is expected to go even more attacking than usual in the absence of Xavi, so it is likely to be a central three of Iniesta, Busquets and Fabregas.

Sociedad fired up for La Liga revenge against FC Barcelona 0

Posted on February 22, 2014 by admin

FC Barcelona will be expecting to have to beat Real Sociedad today to retain their place at the top of La Liga, because Real Madrid have the much easier task of a home game against Elche. Barcelona can expect a tough away match, with the Sociedad manager, players and fans seeking revenge for what they see as a very unfair game at the Nou Camp recently.

Barcelona’s last 16 away form has GOT to improve!! 0

Posted on February 18, 2014 by admin

It might surprise you to know that Barcelona have actually got a pretty poor record for this stage of the Champions League. It is not that bad, of course, because we have not failed to reach the semi-final stage since 2007 and have won the competition twice in that time. But in four of the last five years, Barcelona have failed to win their away leg at the last 16 phase.

Can Man City really stop in-form Messi and Barcelona? Unlikely 0

Posted on February 17, 2014 by admin

There is no doubt that Barcelona were not particularly happy about getting Manchester City in the draw for the knockout stages of the Champions League, with only Arsenal a possible tougher test because of their experience in the competition.

And not too long ago it was looking worrying for the Spanish champions, as their form dipped while Manuel Pellegrini had City blasting teams off the pitch every week. But our fortunes have reversed a little. City suffered two games in a row where they failed to score, but they did come back with a good FA cup win over Chelsea on Saturday.

Barcelona go full strength to ensure place in Copa Del Rey final 0

Posted on February 11, 2014 by admin

The fact that Barcelona have not lost a game by more than one goal all season is a pretty incredible stat and should give Tata Martino and his players a great deal of confidence for tomorrow. But the Barca boss is taking no chances and is set to name his strongest possible starting XI.

The second leg of the Copa Del Rey semi-final against Real Sociedad should see the new manager book a place in the final of a major competition at the first time of asking. I’m not including the Spanish Supercup victory over Atletico Madrid because Martino was not in charge to qualify for that.

Atletico loss means Barcelona can regain lead of La Liga at Sevilla 0

Posted on February 09, 2014 by admin

When Barcelona suffered a shock defeat at home to Valencia last week, it saw them slip off the top of the Spanish La Liga table for the first time in months and, with Real Madrid and their city rivals Atletico seemingly in relentless form (winning games even when playing badly) it seemed like it might be a hard task to get that top spot back.

But a spot of luck has given Barca the chance to bounce back at the first opportunity. Atletico travelled to relegation strugglers Almeria but were below par and ended up losing 2-0. To be fair to them, the referee was abysmal and should have given them two penalties and sent two Almeria players off, but all that matters now is that we take advantage of their slip.
