This match was no different than any of the recent away outings under Valverde, boring, uninspiring and just managing to scrape through; only due to the kind of talents under disposition.




Barca - 2 | Leganes - 1


When mediocrity becomes the way of life, this kind of display becomes an unbelievably satisfying affair, at least for the stupid management we have got. Some may call this an extremely lucky result, but I beg to differ. We should distinguish between the boring display and extremely lucky nights. Lucky ones are those nights when we end up wondering how on earth we are not lost that, and usually we see one man standing there - Ter Stegan.


This was a different feeling. At the end of the match, we simply wonder how we won that. But then this has been a regular feeling with Barcelona lately. It's just we managed to scrape through. In any other season, we would have said such victories win us the league. But then in this season, this has been the standard way of business.

Barca vs Levante Full Match Highlights | Barca - 3, Levante - 1

FC Barcelona lost once again away from home, something which we expect every time we step out of Barcelona. In a span of seven minutes, Barcelona lost a 1-0 first-half lead, to lose 3-1.


I can't say enjoy highlights, but do watch the highlights below:



Barcelona produced another 'Valverde Masterclass' last night against Levante going down 3-1 in a clueless display. This doesn't come as a big surprise, and this display clearly shows that this won't be the last one either!



Barcelona Stoops to New Low under Valverde. And It shows no Sign of Stopping

We may have to define a term called 'Valverde Masterclass' in order to describe what is on display currently at Barcelona. That makes it easy to define rather than writing sentences after sentences. Mention 'Valverde Masterclass' and everyone gets it. That term should by now mean clearly 'Disaster in Defense, and Clueless in Attack'. At least it will make life easier for everyone like us describing this ordeal!


To describe this match is pretty is easy. We have seen this movie again and again under Valverde. The problem this season is the frequency of this show. It's been happening so frequently that we simply couldn't take a moment off. And it shows no sign of stopping. Also, Valverde has no clue in stopping this!

FC Barcelona - 5 | Real Valladolid - 1


Nothing much to say here, Messi came, Messi scored, Messi created, case closed. It's that simple, isn't it? Many Messi fans were worried whether he has fallen far behind in the Goal scoring charts. Now it shows that for Messi no chart is far behind! He created two goals, scored two one of them was an exceptional free-kick and did a lot of other things. Vidal, Saurez, and Lenglet joined Messi on the score sheet to take Barcelona back to the top of the league.


Check out the full match highlights from the match below:

Feb 24, 2019


Lionel Messi produced a masterclass act scoring his 50th Career hattrick and assisting the other in a hard-fought victory against Sevilla.



MESSI saves BARCELONA with an Out of the World Performance #Barca #Messi #BarcaSevilla

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!

Barca vs Sevilla Match Highlights #Barca #BarcaSevilla

Lionel Messi saved Barca once again as we are all used to to script a 4-2 victory against Sevilla at one of the toughest grounds in Spain. Messi scored three and assited the other one to secure Barca the victory.

Check out the Highlights below:

Luis Saurez scored twice and assisted Messi's 400th Goal in la Liga in Barca's 3-0 victory over Eibar.



Luis Saurez scored twice and assisted Messi's 400th Goal in la Liga in Barca's 3-0 victory over Eibar #Barca #FCBarcelona #Messi #Saurez

FC Barcelona - 3 | Eibar - 0

Barcelona football maintained their five point lead on top of the league with a solid and efficient 3-0 victory over Eibar at the Camp Nou. Luis Saurez scored twice and Messi once to keep Barca ahead of the hunting pack, which incidentally has been reduced to Atletico Madrid after Sevilla lost to Athletic Bilbao at San Mames early in the day.


So at exactly the halfway stage, Barcelona has a five-point lead over second placed Atletico and ten points lead over third and fourth-placed Sevilla and Real Madrid respectively. In a season, where a number of teams threatened to upset the usual status-quo, the league has finally turned into a two-horse race. But still, when you consider that only 12 points separate the third-placed team and the just above relegation team, we are sure for a sensational second half of the league.

Lionel Messi and Luis Saurez gave Barca a great start to 2019 in terms of results, even though the performance never matched up to their high standards.



 FC Barcelona Starts Year 2019 with a Competitive Victory over Getafe #Barca #FCBarcelona #Messi #Saurez

Barca - 2 | Getafe - 1

Scrappy has to be the most apt word which could describe last night's 2-1 victory over Getafe at the Coliseum in Madrid. Despite that, if I decided to describe this as 'Competitive' (as I have described in the Title), there is a solid reason to it. Even such a scrappy victory was elevated due to what happened before the game to all our major competitors in the league.


Barcelona came into the game clearly knowing that a victory over here will send us five points clear of the table. The two major sides, which were capable of mounting a challenge to Barca's title defense - Sevilla and Atletico, drew when they met each other prior to our match. Real Madrid who is already having a horrendous season compounded the pressure on them by losing 2-0 at home to Real Sociedad. Currently, they lie ten points adrift of leaders Barcelona and lies in the fifth position, one point away from Alaves.

FC Barcelona Secured a Hard-fought 2-0 victory over Villareal at the Camp Nou. But t the three points should not mask the Problems within Barcelona Football Club.



FC Barcelona - 2 | Villareal - 0

Barcelona regained the top spot in La Liga last night with a very tough and uncharacteristic 2-0 victory over Villareal at the Camp Nou. May be defining it as uncharacteristic masks the reality; we have been playing more or less the same way for majority of this season, barring a wonderful two week stretch. In yet another see-saw weekend, Barcelona was able to snatch the top spot from Sevilla after Alaves held Sevilla to a draw.


Saying Alaves held Sevilla to a draw is unfair on Alaves, but still, Sevilla is always the better side. Such has been this season, where the bigger teams have been struggling with their performances and average sides have been punching above their weight. This week was no exception, Real Madrid and Barcelona won but wasn't any convincing; Atletico and Sevilla were held to draw and they weren't convincing either.

FC Barcelona Produced one of the worst performances of this season so far, going down 4-3 to Real Betis at home. It coincided with the return of Lionel Messi, Is there any more to read in that?


Real Betis destroy Barcelona at the Camp Nou

Sometimes we cry a lot about how statistics skew up the actual picture a lot, especially when it's against us. Somehow after the conclusion of last night's match against Real Betis, I somehow had those same feeling. The 4-3 scoreline in favour of Real Betis never describe what transpired on the field of Camp Nou. It was much worse, Barcelona don't have any right to being only a goal away from Real Betis.


We looked absolutely disjointed and Real Betis, was taking us apart like we were some second division side. After all the success in recent weeks, Barcelona fans and players were brought down to earth by a display, that can be only be described as shambolic. To make it worse, it happened on the night Messi made his come back.

FC Barcelona was given a taste of their medicine by Real Betis last night, who tore them apart to win convincingly 4-3 at the Camp Nou. Lionel Messi made his comeback from injury, but that wasn't enough despite scoring two and assisting one.

Check out the Highlights below:

Nov 4, 2018



FC Barcelona increased their lead at top of table to four points, with a very late 3-2 victory over Rayo Vallecano. Once again Saurez was the 'Hero of the Match' scoring twice.

Oct 29, 2018




Barcelona produced a mesmerizing performance against Real Madrid at the Camp Nou winning the goal by scoring five against their arch-rival. Saurez scored a hat trick and Coutinho and Vidal completed the scoreline for Barca.


Check out the highlights below:


Barcelona Football Club humiliated Real Madrid with a 5-1 thrashing at the Camp Nou to go two points clear at the top.



FC Barcelona - 5 | Real Madrid - 1


Sensational has to be the word that aptly describe what transpired at the Camp Nou tonight. May be even that would not describe the feeling of each Barcelona fans now. How quickly things changed; a few weeks back we were struggling to impose ourselves in the league. Now we have opened up a two point lead at the top and produced two sensation displays back to back.


Once again it was Luis Saurez, who brilliantly led the attack in the absence of Messi with a stunning hat-trick. From struggling for goals in recent matches, he simply turned around the table now to score four in two.

This Clasico has so much at stake for both Managers with completely different perspectives. For Real Madrid's Lopetegui, this could be the last chance.



FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid Match Preview


Spanish League has been on for a quite ride this season in contrast to the previous seasons. There is not a single team from the Capital Side in the top four going into the season's first 'El Clasico'. That in itself is a rarity of serious kinds, and then think that the top two spots are occupied by the Two Catalan Giants. What a situation for the rebel Republic.

Barcelona's victory over Sevilla took them to top of La Liga table, but Lionel Messi injury completely dampens the spirit.


Leo Messi Injury down Spirit in Barcelona's Valuable Triumph

FC Barcelona - 4 | Sevilla FC - 2

Barcelona Football Club regained the top spot in the La Liga table with a quite amazing 4-2 victory over the then first placed Sevilla FC. But the victory mattered less at the moment as everyone was concerned about only one thing - Lionel Messi injury. Messi's night ended in just 17 minutes after getting injured, but by then he had scored once and assisted the other.


The very fact that Messi scripted this victory in just the first few minutes in the match shows his impact on Barca this season. Now with him injured and destined to miss the Clasico, the odds of Barca's victory in 'El Clasico' has come down substantially as per www.novibet.co.uk.

Three Takeaways from Barca's Draw against Valencia

Barcelona Football Club continued their stumbling way of defending the La Liga title with a 1-1 draw against Valencia at the Mestalla. I am not sure whether this way is proper for defending the title. Regardless of What I think, Valverde likes this style. He is on a mission of proving his critics right and he is doing a great job in getting it done!


Let's look at the three points we could take back home from this match. May be there ain't much, but with Valverde in change there is no Guarantee of anything better in future.


FC Barcelona continued their winless streak in the league to the fourth consecutive match with a 1-1 draw against Valencia at the Estadio de Mestalla.


FC Barcelona drew against Valencia despite Messi Magic #Barca #FCBarcelona #BarcaValencia

Barcelona Football Club continued their winless run in league to an unprecedented fourth match in a row. I cannot remember a situation like this happening in recent times. Like last match, we had to rely of Lionel Messi's heroics to save at least a point from the match. But unlike last week, this time this performance cost us the top spot on the table.


Sevilla FC who earlier moved to top of table, cemented their position at top after Barca's draw. Barca's next match after the International break will be against leader's Sevilla, which means there is a huge possibility of the winless streak extending to a fifth game.



Barca - 1 : Valencia - 1 | Full Match Highlights

FC Barcelona was held to another draw in the league by Valencia at the Mestella. The result saw Barca losing their top spot on the table to the high flying Sevilla FC. It's quite strange how things have changed. It took a miraculous intervention by Messi to get Barac atleast a point in this match.

Check out the highlights from the match below:

Oct 7, 2018


FC Barcelona will be looking to move ahead of the pack when they face Valencia away from home tonight. Their hope would be that the Spirit of Wembley would see them past an opponent who is struggling at the moment.


Bbarca vs Valencia Match Preview

Barcelona Football Club cannot miss the opportunity which the 'turn of circumstances' have presented itself to them. With Real Madrid ending up losing against Alves, who finds themselves third in the table suddenly; Barcelona Football club needs to tighten up and grab three points on offer. Any failure to do so, could see the likes of Sevilla and Atletico Madrid leaping past us on the table.


In past few weeks, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona have been doing each other big time favours by not grabbing the gifted oppurtunities. Will Barcelona reciprocate the favour once again this time?
