He along with Dembele scripted the victory for Barcelona, in a match in which they were the second best side for most of the time. This will Barcelona's sixth consecutive appearance in final, and they will be gunning for a record five consecutive titles.

Do Messi have to do it all alone against Real Madrid, or will his teammates stand up? That's the real question in the buildup.

Barca - 4 | Sevilla - 2 ( Messi - 4 | Sevilla - 2 )

In the end, this battle was all about one man, Lionel Messi. And that's a familiar feel for Sevilla fans as they are his favorite opponents. We have lost count of the number of times Lionel Messi has become the tormentor for Sevilla - even at the Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium.


In reality, Barcelona didn't do much to win this match, apart from having the World's Best Player; or the fifth Best player as per FIFA. Sevilla was the better team throughout the match, especially in the first half. But then Barcelona had Messi and that decided everything!

Why Barcelona should look to move Lionel Messi from the right, and how it could improve their chnaces in Champions League!



 3 Reason Why Barcelona should not Use Messi on the Right!


Majority of the fans, who watched the performance against Bilbao are left wondering whether things have actually improved from our last season's Champions League exit? We felt toothless for most of the game. Even though the second half was a better affair, we failed to break down a resolute defense.


And that's the worry for Barcelona as this season was more or less is about Champions League. Athletic Bilbao gave us a clear glimpse of what awaits us at the later stage of the Champions League rounds. And our performance at San Mames doesn't inspire much confidence in that pursuit.

Such was the impact of the performance of Nelson Semedo against Real Madrid, many now claim we have found the perfect replacement for Dani Alves. And what does it mean for Sergi Roberto?



Has Semedo Silenced all his Critics with Stunning Effort against Real? #NelsonSemedo #Barca

Nelson Semedo's Barcelona career has been going in an On-Off fashion for some time. The Portuguese were acquired to replace Barcelona stalwart, Dani Alves who left on a free transfer. That was no small shoes to fill, and the Portuguese had struggled to fill those so far.


Despite the early promises, he had to face tough competition from Sergi Roberto for the Right back position. And it was extremely disappointing, especially for the player to see him being relegated to the bench by a player who was predominantly a defender.

Barcelona was held to a one all draw by Real Madrid at home, and the team from Spanish Capital starts on the front foot in the 2nd Leg.




FC Barcelona - 1 | Real Madrid - 1


This result didn't come to me as much of a surprise. I warned about this in my earlier article - Why Barcelona should be vary of the Real Madrid threat?. Sometimes, you get a different kind of vibe from the events and enrgy surrounding a match, and this match I felt the same. That's the reason why I came up with that earlier article, just to warn about the folly of taking Real Madrid lightly.


Did we pay dearly for the mistake of taking an opponent lightly? Only we will come to know after the second leg. But it's safe to say now that Barcelona in a third time in a row is starting on the back foot going into the Copa second leg. We turned it around against Levante and Sevilla, will we be able to do it at the Santiago Bernabeu?

With Antonio Miguel Matéu Lahoz in charge, Barcelona not only have to worry about the Opponents but also a Referee who have purposefully hurt them more than once in the past.



With Mateu Lahoz in Charge, Madrid has a Man Advantage over Barcelona!


The first Clasico of 2019 will be held at the Camp Nou on 6th of February, Wednesday in the First leg of this season's Copa del Rey, semi-final. This will start one of the toughest period for Barca which include three Clasico clashes in 25 days and also matches with Athletic, Valladolid, Lyon, Sevilla in between them.


And that makes it essential to start on the front foot in Wednesday's match so that we can selectively rest our crucial players. The likes of Messi, Alba, Busquets etc. have no replacement in our squad and which means that we need to prioritize matches where these stalwarts need to be taken off or even rested completely. With such a tough run of the fixture, the chances of that appear minimal.


Feb 4, 2019


Real Madrid, despite the hiccups have somewhat managed to get their season back on track and Barca should be wary of their threat.





The moment the announcement was made about the Clasico clash in the Copa del Rey semi-finals, there was huge excitement among Barcelona fans. It's understandable that any 'Clasico' clash will bring in a certain amount of excitement, along with a bot of worry (especially if you are a Barcelona fan). But this time around there is a bit of arrogance surrounding this, as if the result is a foregone conclusion.


It is nonsensical to consider that Real Madrid as a lightweight opponent going into this clash. They still remain one of the formidable opposition and with the second leg away from home, we should take them extremely seriously when they visit Camp Nou on Wednesday. Barcelona definitely has an upper hand, but to make that matter, Barcelona should take care of the following three factors.




Lionel Messi produced a brilliant performance to save Barca from a defeat and with Atletico Madrid losing later, that draw has become extremely important. Barcelona instead of seeing their lead cut to three points, we have the lead increased to six points. And there is only one person to thank, Lionel Messi.
