Messi admits he’s not fit but Pedro backs him to star for Barcelona 0

Because Lionel Messi is such a fantastic player, and because Barcelona base all of their playing style around him, even when he is not fully fit, he usually plays. The player himself has admitted that he not firing on all cylinders, but believes that as he keeps playing, he will gain that full 100 percent match sharpness and get back to his best.

Messi was not very influential at all as Barca toiled to a 1-0 victory over local rivals Espanyol on Friday, but Messi does not believe that the fans have anything to worry about, as he declared via social media while celebrating the first birthday of his son Thiago on Saturday.

The way Barcelona have started this La Liga season so well, and the fact that tonight’s game against local rivals Espanyol is being played at the Nou Camp, would lead you to believe that the result is a formality, but the players will have made sure that Tata Martino knows that this local derby will be far from easy, as Espanyol will give absolutely everything to spoil the Barca party.

Tito Vilanova was back in charge of Barcelona for the Catalan derby against Espanyol, and it could hardly have gone better for him. With Barcelona 4-0 ahead by half time, Espanyol must have been fearing a cricket score, but Barca lost some of their urgency, understandably, and that remained the score until the end.

Pedro was unlucky not to get a hat-trick, having seen two perfectly good goals chalked off for offside. Pedro will be happy, though, as he was desperate to add to his tally of just one goal in the Primera liga this season. His performances have deserved more, and a bit of luck with a slight deflection from Messi’s shot settled his nerves. His second was taken with a striker’s skill and confidence, as were the two that were disallowed.

There must be something in the air at the Barcelona training ground or stadium, because the speed of recovery of the players and staff is remarkable. The latest little miracle has been performed by the manager Tito Vilanova. The 44-year old had surgery for his Parotid gland cancer less than a month ago, but he will be sitting in the dugout today as Barcelona fave city rivals Espanyol at the Nou Camp.

Vilanova has already been back at the training ground talking to the players and going through some sessions, although his assistant, Jordi Roura, has been dealing with the media. Vilanova does not want to overshadow the players and detract from the fact that this is a football match that Barca want to win.
