Match Review: UD Almería 1-2 FC Barcelona

Breathe. In what was a tense and stressful afternoon, FC Barcelona successfully managed to comeback from a one goal deficit againt UD Almería to win the game and add three massive points to temporarily top the league. Today’s performance was far, far from good, and since both Sevilla and Valencia await the team after the international break, there is much to discuss and much to change. Neymar Jr. and Jordi Alba scored both goals for Barcelona from two amazing Luis Suárez crosses, while Almería’s goal was scored by Thievy Bifouma. Continue reading for more.

Match Preview: UD Almería vs. FC Barcelona

Having earned a crucial 0-2 win against Ajax on Wednesday, Barcelona must find ways to continue their positive momentum against Almería this weekend. Two losses against Real Madrid and Celta Vigo made clear the startling problems with Luis Enrique’s team so far, and while the performance in Amsterdam was an improvement, there are still many flaws to iron out. With the disruption of the international break coming up, followed by key matches against Sevilla and Valencia – both currently challenging near the top of the table – Luis Enrique must use this opportunity to get his team in order and earn the confidence of both the players and the fans.

Match Review: FC Barcelona 0-1 RC Celta de Vigo

Match Review: FC Barcelona 0-1 RC Celta de Vigo

Wastefulness is one of things you never want to have when playing a game of football. You know that you may not get many chances, but those that you do get you finish well. What happens if you get 19 shots, 15 of those being clear-cut chances? Are you allowed to waste them? Of course not. If you do, you are punished. The ball never forgives. If you make mistakes, it stings you. That was pretty much what happened with Barcelona in the match against Celta. The Blaugranas were looking for a response after the clásico, but ended up wasting a catalogue of chances and losing all three points against a valiant Celta side that did basic things well to inflict a second straight league defeat on the Catalans.

Match Preview: FC Barcelona vs Celta de Vigo

FC Barcelona return to the Camp Nou with a difficult league fixture against Luis Enrique’s former side, Celta de Vigo, after a match to forget against Real Madrid. While a win would help both players and fans to put the clasico loss behind them, Celta de Vigo is not a side to underestimate. The visitors are the only team in La Liga yet to lose an away game, but their record against the Catalans when Barça play at home is not so encouraging. Celta de Vigo’s only win against Barcelona dates back to 1942 which means that they have never won at the Camp Nou, and Barça would surely like to keep it that way.

Match Preview: Real Madrid vs FC Barcelona

It’s here, it’s time. They come around every year, twice at least, but each time it feels as big if not bigger than the one before. FC Barcelona – Real Madrid, Real Madrid – FC Barcelona, el derbí now el clásico. For Carlo and co, it’s a chance to narrow the gap to a single point. For Lucho and the gang, an opportunity to streak seven ahead. For both, it’s the ultimate test of superiority, a battle between the two best collections of footballers on the planet. Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suárez, James Rodríguez, Neymar, Gareth Bale, Andrés Iniesta, Luka Modrić, Xavi Hernández, Toni Kroos, Sergio Busquets, Sergio Ramos. How much Saturday’s result will mean in the long run is unknown, but right now it feels all-important. But perhaps most importantly it’s a guaranteed 90 minutes of bona fide genius on display for an estimated 400 million set of eyeballs. It’s el gran clásico.

Match Review: FC Barcelona 3-0 SD Eibar

Match Review: FC Barcelona 3-0 SD Eibar

One analyzes the process, not the result. It’s a widespread, deeply ingrained yet erroneous mindset doing it the other way around. I didn’t fret for one second tonight that FC Barcelona would walk away winners. There was nothing frustrating or lacking in the first half, it was simply sport, where not everything comes off and inches and microseconds may as well be miles and hours. That’s why one trusts the process. Barça were exceptional in the opening 20 to 25 minutes tonight. One could highlight the ferocity of ball recovery (certainly fulfilling Pep’s 6 second rule), relentless pressing, the speed of passing and movement and several outrageous mig tocs, and all would be correct. But really it was the steely focus, the intense concentration and unmissable pursuit of excellence. It took a bit of luck in the first and then a lot of class in the second to eventually slay a commendable Eibar 3-0.

Match Preview: FC Barcelona – SD Eibar

We are just one week away from the first clásico at the Bernabéu, and everything seems to be rotating around the big match in Madrid. The referee, Neymar’s form, Lionel Messi’s position, the potential return of Luis Suárez. However, people seem to forget that Barcelona have to play another match before travelling to the capital. Unknown Eibar are at the Camp Nou today, and given that the league table guarantees that Barça will go to Madrid above their eternal rivals, complacency might settle down amongst the players. Eibar though is the last team you would want to be complacent against. Read more…
