Barcelona Run Riot!

Barcelona 8 Osasuna 0. Messi, Fabregas, Villa, Roversio, Messi, Xavi, Villa, Messi and full time. A football feast watched by a full attendance capacity crowd and whilst Barcelona remain and keep playing as the world class team they are, one wonders if the gap between the best teams in La Liga and the rest of the clubs, is becoming too great. This 8-0 win though surprisingly still only leaves Barcelona in 3rd position, with Valencia and Real Betis both with 3 wins out of 3 at at the top. Surely it is only a matter of time though before Barca are back on top?

Real Sociedad 2 Barcelona 2

The problem for us Barcelona fans is that we almost now perhaps take winning for granted and in this latest game, with the Catalans 2-0 up away from home after only 10 minutes, it seemed as though victory would be a breeze. Alas, come half time, the game remained at a compfortable 2-0. Sociedad then came out fighting in the second half and the Estadio de Anoeta saw 2 goals in 2 minutes from the home side - and a game which finished with a point a piece. (Looking for information on playing football in Barcelona, Spain?)

Quite how Barcelona fell apart in the second half is hard to assess although one might begin to wonder if Fabregas could be upsetting the balance of what was a perfect midfield. Only time will tell. In the meantime, Real Madrid grabbed the top position and will look to stay there. Barcelona are not far behind though.

A great start for Barca - Barcelona 5 Villareal 0

If there is one fault with the Spanish La Liga, it is that two teams, Barcelona and Real Madrid, dominate the league. Such is the quality of these two sides, that already both sit on top of the league after 1 game with 5-0 and 6-0 wins respectively. If you want to see world class football though, then the Nou Camp Stadium is certainly the place, and any visitor to the city will most likely enjoy seeing a live game by one of the worlds leading clubs sides - FC Barcelona.

This was the first league game for Fabregas in the Nou Camp and the stadium erupted when Fabregas netted the second goal for the home side. Further goals from Sanchez and Messis (2), added to Thiago's 25th minute goal. An easy win and very one sided this time around.
