Barcelona 2-1 sevilla- Messi is overwhelmingly good.




Barcelona were in excellent form in the 2nd half as they sealed a 2-1 victory away from home to an in- form Sevilla at  Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday evening.

Wonderful. Really. Just wonderful. What a game. Great comeback from Barcelona and it was inspired by Lionel Messi. He scored the first, and assisted the second for Suarez, who netted the winner just after the hour mark.

Barca move to within two points of Real Madrid at the top,who they play later this month.
who they play later this month.I tell you what, this is a serious football team. A serious, serious football team.

They struggled in the opening 45 minutes and then, as a collective, figured out how to deal with the problem in front of them. They stepped up a gear and SEVILLA had no response.

The most important thing tonight was that the team did  wonderfully well after a sloppy first half display at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán . who knows  the team would have fallen apart like they did last week tuesday . moreover, it was an individual mistake by Sergi Roberto that led to the first goal. Luckily we have Messi, who brillantly slotted that equalizer after a magnificent Neymar pass that kept us  hopeful. Thanks for that.

I was expecting this though. It was pretty similar to the City game. Just with reversed halves. But Messi again in top form. But overall bad build up play. Bad positioning, lots of passing mistakes due to gun and run play, missing triangles and passing lanes.

  1. Now I am just happy that we got the important three points won in a difficult stadium - against a team that not only this season put a real test on our eleven. It wasn’t the first time they gave us a good run for our money. But I was really impressed by how good Sampaoli’s men already function. Good scouting and a coach that obviously found a way to utilize his players already this early in the season. This is not something that is common when you consider that 15 players left the club, with 15 new ones settling in. Overall a great team with great fans. The atmosphere at the Sánchez Pizjuán is simply amazing. Definitely need to attend a game there rather sooner than later.

    Sulaiman: Crazy match. A game of two halves. That first half was disastrous, much like our second half against Manchester City. Messi got us out from the dead just before the end of the first half with a well taken goal and possibly the only good decision in the final third Neymar made all match.

    Massive props must go to Lucho for changing at half time which he has been reluctant to do throughout his tenure. Better connections in the midfield, better spacing, less burden on Busquets and finally less verticality. Messi was allowed to play play higher up unlike the first half where he was picking the ball up from behind the half way line.

    Denis Suarez got into the game and was filling part of the void Iniesta's injury has left. Denis brought the ball out of the midfield really well and worked very hard off the ball. Mascherano and Umtiti seems to be working really well. Masche played his best game of the season, vital stops from him to keep us in the game on more than 1 occasion. Umtiti filled the void of Pique and held us together in the game in the first half.

    What more can you say on Messi. The guy is a freak!

    Really happy for the 3 points and that Lucho made much needed changes to the middle to bring stability to our buildup. We need to put in much more complete performances, 45 mins of high quality is not enough but it is good that Lucho has figured how to balance the midfield again which has been a problem this season.
