If there is one weakness in Messi's game recently, it is with Penalty kicks. But last night he dispatched one with absolute contempt. Watch the video.

All the actions and Goals from FC Barcelona's 6-0 victory over Getafe at the Camp Nou on 28th April 2015
Barcelona Football Club was at their very best last night against a hapless Getafe hitting them for half a dozen goals at the Camp Nou. With just four matches to go, Barca have their sights firmly set on the League trophy. Even though they have a clash with Atletico Madrid in the penultimate week, we could expect them to get the job done. Of the remaining match the Atletico Match looks tough for our boys. The rest we should be able to easily negotiate. Real Madrid who is currently lying five points behind will be facing Sevilla away from home and Valencia at home and also Espanyol away from home in their last five matches. Unless we screw this up this League trophy is definitely coming to Barcelona. The performance from the team were simply sensational- the pressing, the inter play, the goals all were out of the world. And once more Luis Saurez was the star of the match with two absolutely brilliant finishes.

All eyes will be on Paris tonight when FC BARCELONA takes on PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN FC at the Parc des Princes stadium. Without any doubt the Quarter-Final ties involving Spanish sides - FC Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid are the pick of the lot in this season's Quarter-Final line-up. This clash is also between two sides who are on top of their respective league table, funny enough they both reached there after a bit of struggle. The similarity in this season doesn't end there. Both their leagues are usually known to be strictly two horse legs but this season these two are the most keenly fought leagues in Europe. Spanish League has become a three horse race with all three Quarter-Final participants fighting for the coveted trophy. Meanwhile without any doubt French League is where we seeing the toughest battle with four teams separated from each other by a mere point. Funny enough, the so called "Best League in the World" has become a one horse race and don't have a single team in the late stages of Champions League or Europa League.

It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters. Epictetus
A draw at one of the toughest grounds in Spain can never be claimed as stumbling/setback, especially if the Home team has never been defeated not even once this season there. But still to throw away a 2-0 lead especially with the La Liga title in the balance could prove to be really scary when the season ends. Before this match, every football pundits have identified Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán as the place where both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid could end up dropping points. In that background, the two points lost after leading 2-0 does feel like a loss in some way. Had we won the pressure on Real Madrid (who are currently two points behind Barca ) would have been enormous. Every team has struggled away at Sevilla in recent times, but Barca in recent times have managed to successfully decode the key to success at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán . Prior to this draw the last time Barca dropped points here was in the 2011-12 season.
