Valdes - 7.5 - Played his part well. Produced some excellent stops to keep Barca in the game. Couldn't do anything about the goals as his defense let him down. Still felt a bit confused coming from his line to claim long balls; but is proving again and again that in one on one situation he is the best in the world.

Alves - 6 - A real off day in both defense and attack. His killing crosses were missing throughout the match and failed to hold the left flank.

Pique - 5 - Worst of the center backs. His habit of committing early for challenges is becoming a head ache.

Caceres - 6 - Better of the two Center defenders. Wasn't confident but produced some essential stoppings. Was at fault for the first goal.

Abidal - 6.5 - Better of all the defenders. It's good to see he getting back to his best. May not have went forward that much but still was confident in defense. He should have tried to support Iniesta on the left in the first half. (I actually missed Abidal in my first write up, Thanks PEP for pointing this out)

Xavi - 6.5 - Not a great game from the midfield general. But he wasn't helped by a poor Busquets and Keita.

Busquets - 5 - Worst match of this season for the youngster. Didn't look assured. Got frustrated as game progressed.

Keita - 5.5 - Very poor game but it is normal as he is coming back from Injury.

Hleb - 3 - Pathetic game. Never contributed anything in attack; never tracked back to help defense. Was standing simply at the edge of box leabing Mark Goanzalez unmarked for the second goal.

Eto - 8 - Great game. Found his touch once again. The second goal was pure class. But it will be betetr he give the penalty taking job to Messi and Xavi. Pathetic penalty kick.

Iniesta - 8 - Was a constant threat throughout the match. Created the fist goal. Had some great run from the left.

Substitutes : Henry(7), Messi (6) and Bojan (6.5).

Man Of The Match - Ricardo (Betis' Goal Keeper)
