  • FC Barcelona gave the best Get-Well Message to Vilanova with a 3-1 win
  • Lionel Messi, Xavi Hernandez and Christian Tello scored for Barca

FC Barcelona went into the Christmas break with a comfortable 3-1 victory against Real Valladoid. It was comfortable till the time we conceded an unnecessary goal in the 89th minute made it a bit nervy. Xavi Hernandez opened the scoring for us, Messi scored teh customary goal in the second half and Tello made it a comfortable win for Barca. This match was a testing point to see whether Barca will struggle with the absence of Tito Vilanova. The initial signs are not good for our opponents. The starting line-up selected by Jordi Roura was in the expected line. Valdes, Alves, Pique, Mascherano, Alba, Xavi, Busquets, Thiago, Messi, Pedro and Alexis. Iniesta was supposed to carry a knock and expectedly started on the bench. The only surprise was not to see Villa in the starting line-up.

FC Barcelona will face the Italian side AC Milan in the first knock-out stage of the 2012-13 UEFA Champions League. The match is a repeat of last season's Quarter-Final tie, which Barca won convincingly. AC Milan has been struggling for some time in their League this season, but if the past some weeks results are to be taken into account - they may have finally found some stability. The lose of Ibrahimovic and Silva could come as a huge problem for Milan when they face the Spanish league leaders. But still AC Milan is the second most successful team in European Cup history and they have to be treated with much respect. The match also should see ex-Barca player Bojan Krkic playing against us, if he gets the opportunity. The tie will be held in February and March 2013. Everyone expects Barca to get past the Italian side, but it could prove to be a real tough task. But the fact that we play the second leg at home is a very positive thing.

FC Barcelona gave all it's fans a beautiful Christmas present with the announcement of the renewal of Messi, Puyol and Xavi's contracts. There was never a doubt of their renewal. All the players have categorically asserted their wish to stay with the club, and the club also wanted them to stay. So the fact that they renewed was not a surprise, but the stealth which the club did it caught everyone by surprise. It was just brilliant. Something which should have been just a normal news ended up being "The Breaking News". In coming days the players will sign and complete the formalities in the presence of the President and others. As we understand Xavi and Puyol's contracts will be extended to 2016. Messi's contract will be extended to 2018.

If there is an apt title to describe last night's clash against Atletico Madrid, then it has to be this headline. Thirty minutes into the first half most of the Barca fans were a bit scared. Falcao has already scored once, he had hit the post once and almost came close to scoring another. This all happened even with Puyol doing his very best marking the most sought out center forward in the World. Atletico Madrid came out with a plan and was executing the plans with near perfection. They stayed compact in the midfield, closed down our midfield and double marked Messi out of the game. Forget shot on goal, we didn't even have a shot at goal for so long last night. Watching the proceedings it was clear that we may require a bit of individual magic to see us through this match. But from where will it come? Messi was made completely ineffective by the brilliant marking of Atletico midfield. The next option had to be Iniesta who also was struggling to run at the back four. To make matters worse we had Pedro and Sanchez competeing with each other to find out who had the worst game of the night. So the only hope was to somehow reach the half-time with no more new damages done.
