Pedro, too, is unique

This is a translated version of the commentary presented by Miguel Rico in El Mundo Deportivo. The original version can be found here.

Last season, Messi won the ‘Balón de Oro’, the ‘FIFA World Player’ and various other individual prizes that, without any doubt, he deserved and that, in the new season, he is on track to win once again. Leo not only continues being the best of the best, but he is going to complete his collection with the ‘Golden Boot,’ the only grand award that he has lacked.

Match Preview: Sevilla vs Barcelona

Match Preview: Sevilla vs Barcelona

Saturday, May 8, 21:00 CET – Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, Sevilla

This season, FC Barcelona has lost four matches.
Two in the Champions League, to Rubin Kazan and Inter Milan.
Another, in La Liga, to Atletico Madrid.
The last, in the Copa del Rey, to Sevilla.

They proved to be most tough, the most incomprehensible, the most frustrating and ultimately the best.

Any side capable of defeating the official world champions is a side to be feared, and feared they should be, for tonight it will be the fear of giving up an assured Spanish Primera crown in which will haunt the Barcelona players right up to the kick off of this match.

Video of the Day: Iniesta’s goal in five languages


Last year, May the 6th we saw a goal. A goal that created history for FC Barcelona, that is so monumental that it became the symbol of our success last season. A goal scored not only by Iniesta but by the whole team, the club and the fans!

I am sure everyone has a story to tell about how you reacted after this goal, just share your story in the comments below. I for one, wept and laughed and cried and did not sleep the whole night lying on my bed thanking God and all those supernatural forces that made that goal possible! And then I thanked San Andres.

Just enjoy the video.

Will Valdes Finally Get His National Cap?

Original article @ CBC.ca

The campaign for Victor Valdes

By Sid Lowe

Vicente del Bosque said something that he probably shouldn’t have this week.

Spain’s national team coach admitted that he has one or two doubts about the composition of his squad for the World Cup. Worse still, he admitted that one of those doubts was in goal. And, he added: “Victor Valdes has been and is one of the best goalkeepers we have in Spain. He has proven himself to be a very safe and secure goalkeeper. No one in Barcelona doubts him now.”

On Saturday, FC Barcelona’s Liga campaign will zero in on its nail-biting conclusion: only two teams now stand between them and glory. One of those teams, Sevilla FC, has emerged as our nemesis this season having knocked Barcelona out of La Copa del Rey earlier this year. However, in Antonio Álvarez, Sevilla have a new coach since we last met, a man who has generated some mixed results with his outfit. Despite their continued commitment to attacking football, what can we expect Álvarez to bring to the table for Saturday’s defining encounter? Continue reading »
