What a goal by Messi
Wow...what a goal from Messi lol perfect volley. Nice cross in from Rakitic, too, but damn what a finish.
Lol Pique trying to go Beckenbauer
Look at that Andalusian sun
I need vacation
Pique should be on a yellow for that pullback. EDIT: nvm he got the yellow
Barca having real problems handling Promes and Yedder.
Holy hell that goal by Leo
This game is super exciting.
Barcelona completely fell asleep there...they thought the ball was out (or maybe they thought it was offside? it was neither)...and D2M's favourite player scores.
Looks offside to me
Nah they showed the replay...there was a Sevilla player offside but not involved in the play.
The announcers seem to really like Promes haha, very nearly gives Sevilla the 3-1 lead at the end of the 1st half. What a game so far.
They could fire Valverde at halftime and I'd have zero problems with it
It's like how many consecutive games now they're playing like utter shit
Messi saving their behinds once again
Messi hat-trick! Unbelievable
And Leo lays down the picture perfect pass for Suarez, nice finish. Alena's made a big impact in the 20 or so minutes he's played
I almost feel bad for Sevilla. Having Messi is an unfair advantage.
I checked the scoreline at about the 60th minute or so and figured they'd only get a draw at best. Fantastic result. Can't wait to see the match.
Sevilla is one the top four if not the top club Messi has scored against in his career.
I was also looking for it in the papers, but couldn't find it. Now I did. 44th club career hat-trick for Messi.
Yep. He has 36 goals in 35 games against them. Next closest is 28 goals against Atletico in 33 games.
Messi single-handedly won the game. Again.
He scored two more.
Sucks Im missing all these wonderful performances but like Said Barca's offence is solely on Messi the rest just aren't up to snuff.
Well the best performance from the team in a few matches now. Full credit to Sevilla who were up for it (they owe us). They've been tough at home of late, but I never had the feeling we were out of the match. Of course watching it after the fact and knowing the scoreline might make on think that would be obvious, but the way the team played I didn't think they were troubled.
To touch on Messi's performance, his giveaway after a forced pass attempt led to the first goal. I really had the feeling that he wasn't happy about that and his reply was superb. Of course he wasn't done there. His second goal he deserves more credit that just the goal though. He was pressing the keeper when he made a poor clearance and the goal was the result.
Really happy with the performance and the result going into the Copa Clasico. Hopefully the energy and pressing is indicative of what we'll see there. Hopefully Valverde now has a clear understanding of who should play in that match.
It may have been the best performance in a few matches, that doesn't mean they played well, and I honestly don't understand how you can say "really happy with the performance" because for 60+ minutes they played pretty bad. Really soft defence again, lazy backtracking, no creativity in midfield, nonchalant passing resulting in so many giveaways, Coutinho and Suarez being invisible for most of the game etc. If it wasn't for Messi doing Messi things, or if he would have been absent, this would have probably been an easy 3-0 Sevilla win. First goal came out of nowhere, after Sevilla already had a couple of good chances on counter attacks, and when Messi scored his second it was basically our first chance in the second half as well. Now, I do believe from that point on we were in full control of the game and the final 25 minutes were better, with Dembele and Alena adding much more than Vidal and Couts did. In the end, it's a great result I'll give you that, but in no way should anyone within the team be happy with the overall quality of their game yesterday.
