3-1 victory sees Barça comfortably reach Copa final

3-1 victory sees Barça comfortably reach Copa final

Villarreal huffed and puffed, sprinkled in a little hacking and stomping, and Barça won 3-1 anyways. The game was effectively over before it got going when Neymar put Barcelona ahead three minutes in. At the end of the day, it comes down to basic financial arithmetic: Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suárez versus Ikechukwu Uche, Luciano Vietto, Denis Cheryshev. Whilst Villarreal gave it their all and had a flurry of chances in a first half against an opponent that clearly knew they were 4-1 ahead on aggregate, superior caliber creates higher quality opportunities which leads to a greater frequency of goals. With a smiling Sergio Busquets on the bench, who despite what looked a horrific ankle injury reportedly only suffered a sprain, Barça qualify for the Copa del Rey final as everyone expected they would and with no damage done (fingers crossed still, you never know).

Piqué  hit with a €10,500 fine

Gerard Piqué is known to be the bad boy in the Barça dressing room and the funniest as he is also the one that makes all the pranks. However, this time it got serious with a police officer when Piqué told him, “You are envious of me because I am famous,” before dropping the F word, “f****** embarrassment.” The defender was charged for being verbally abusive and will have to pay a €10,500 fine. Calma Piqué, calma.

Match Preview: Barcelona rumbling toward Copa final

Match Preview: Barcelona rumbling toward Copa final

Can you hear that sound? That’s the rumbling of the earth caused by the Barça faithful as they carry out their pilgrimage to the Camp Nou every match day. That’s the sound of cleats ticking against the tunnel floors of each stadium the blaugrana have marched down in the Copa del Rey, La Liga and Champions League these past two seasons. That is the comforting yet tense pam-pam-pam of relentless passing of foes into submission. It’s the sound of the occasional long boot of the ball as it whistles through mild Spanish air onto the gentle foot of a magician. That dull clang is the sound of footballs whistling by keepers’ finger tips, banging off of goal posts, swishing against back netting, and every pilgrim screaming his or her head off, releasing the tension of living through what seems like an eternity.

The journey has been long and arduous—loaded with slips, drama and disappointment. Not since the late Tito Vilanova lifted the 100-point La Liga trophy in May 2013 have FC Barcelona and its faithful tasted significant silver. The club ended the season 15 points clear of Real Madrid, which seems ridiculous today. But now, a new final is just 90 minutes away. The pilgrims have stood by their team as it has steadily shed its skin, transforming into something stronger and more lethal with each passing week. It’s been a delicious display of the attacking football we know and love, even if it is a little different from that addictive style Pep Guardiola got us jonesin’ for.

February was a kind warning this year

February was a kind warning this year

“Zion! Zion! Zion, it’s over, it’s over, the war is over, the war is over!” The Matrix Revolution

This was how I felt after Barça finally went over the hump and moved passed the dreaded month of February. It’s a cruel month where Barça traditionally exposes itself for opponents to highlight the team’s weaknesses. And like every year, Barça went through February without a perfect winning record, only failing to beat Malaga at home after an eleven match winning streak. But this year, winter was kind to Barça giving it only a fair warning about what we should expect this season.

“Brutal Tello” takes over Portuguese papers

“Brutal Tello” takes over Portuguese papers

Last Sunday was not just another week-closing day for FC Barcelona loanee Cristian Tello and little did he know that he’d be taking over the covers of many prominent Portuguese newspapers the next day. On Sunday night, Tello managed an historic feat; he scored a hat-trick.

Sure, but what makes this hat-trick “historic?” Well, Tello’s the first Porto player to score a hat-trick past arch-rivals Sporting in 37 years (!!!) and this gave him very well-earned praise from the press. All the talk today is about how Tello is a brutal historic lion-slayer.

More Portuguese headlines after the jump!
