5-star Barcelona book Copa Del Rey semi-final spot(with video) 0

Posted on January 30, 2014 by admin

The result of this two legged tie was almost settled in the favour of Barcelona in the first leg at Levante, but the Spanish champions made absolutely sure with a professional and ruthless performance at the Nou Camp last night. The weather was awful, but the team warmed the home fans up with five goals and a place in the Copa Del Rey semi-finals.

The opponents in that semi will probably be Real Sociedad and they must be wondering if they have any chance at all after Barcelona won 5-1 without Messi and made the aggregate score 9-2 against decent La Liga opponents. Messi was rested and Alexis Sanchez was given a chance to shine in the middle. He grabbed it with both hands and scored a nice brace.

Barcelona win at Malaga but Neymar needs referee protection 2

When it was announced that Neymar would sign for FC Barcelona earlier this summer, there was a lot of talk in football circles about whether the talented Brazilian would be able to settle in La Liga and whether he would fit into the Barcelona system alongside Lionel Messi.

Due to the thigh problem that Messi is experiencing at the moment, we have hardly had a chance to see the two strikers together. The fact that Neymar operates happily on the left of a front three, where he was so effective for the Brazil national team at the Confederations Cup, suggests to me that there should be no problem once they get used to each other.

FC Barcelona transfer news- Neymar, Alves and Adriano 1

It appears that the Brarcelona player and Brazil international Adriano Correia could soon have another of his fellow countrymen at the Camp Nou, although we are still not sure about the future of the longest serving Brazilian at the club, Dani Alves.

Adriano is a truly versatile player. This season, the 28-year old has played almost everywhere on the pitch except in goal or as a striker, but he did score one of the goals of the season against Atletico Madrid back in the middle of December. It was an absolute thunderbolt from long range, but he is more known for his defensive duties.

It is clear from this season that Barcelona have some work to do strengthening the squad. The defensive side, especially, is in need of an overhaul, with Puyol now 34-years old and Abidal set to retire or move into coaching. There are young defenders like Bartra, while Alex Song and Adriano can play in central defence if necessary, but one or two top class defenders are needed to strengthen the spine of the team and avoid any repeat of the Champions League debacle against Bayern Munich.

Abidal could start for Barcelona in Munich!! 0

It would be a real life fairytale if it happened and, after coming through 90 minutes for Barcelona against Levante on Saturday, there is a decent chance that Eric Abidal could make his Champions League return against Bayern Munich tomorrow.

There will be no room for sentiment in the decision, but if the French defender does get the nod it will be a fantastic way to complete his miracle recovery from the liver problems that nearly ended his life, not just his football career.

PSG hoping to overturn Ibrahimovich ban for Barcelona 0

The Champions League draw for Barcelona against Paris Saint-Germain has one extra special ingredient, Zlatan Ibrahimovich. Since he left Barcelona in 2010, the Swedish striker has had plenty to say about the Catalan club, including disrespectful things about his manager Pep Guardiola and his team mate Lionel Messi. Ibra recently retracted his statements a little and seems to have calmed down, but there is no doubt he would love to get one over his old club.

David Villa starts for Barcelona against Cordoba in cup 0

Posted on January 10, 2013 by admin

David Villa has been getting increasingly frustrated with his lack of playing opportunities for FC Barcelona, so he will want to prove his worth against Cordoba tonight. After playing for just 50 minutes as a substitute in the last six league games, Villa will start in the Copa Del Rey tonight.

There will be a number of first team regulars who are not in the team, including Xavi, Iniesta, Pedro and Pique, who are all rested. Adriano has failed a fitness test so will also miss out. Messi is in the squad but may not start, which raises more questions about the relationship between the two strikers. It is more likely, however, that they occupy the same position so are not ideally suited to playing together, although they have done so with some success when Villa has played this season.

Below par Messi still scores 2 for Barcelona vs. Athletico plus video 0

Posted on December 17, 2012 by admin

The Barcelona game against Athletico Madrid was billed as the battle of the two strikers, Lionel Messi and Radamel Falcao, as well as the battle between the top two teams in the Spanish Primera Liga. After Real Madrid had surprised everyone by drawing with relegation threatened Espanyol earlier, it really was starting to look like Diego Simeone could be fighting it out with Vilanova for the title.
