Sergio Busquets Movie Score: 4 / five
Sergio Busquets doesn’t think that the Atletico Madrid team was hard done by referee who was in charge of one of the Cup games played between the Red and Whites and Barcelona recently at Vicente Calderon.
It was the return leg of the quarter final tie and Atletico needed to win it by a margin of more than one goal as in the first leg, they had lost by 0-1.
The La Liga reigning champions started with a fierce attack and got one on the score sheet straightaway. They did not try and sit on that lead. They kept attacking and rightly so. They had to get another goal in somehow. Continue reading 'Sergio Busquets dont consider Refree hard decision against Club'»
Sergio Busquets Video Score: four / 5
Barcelona failed to close the gap on Real Madrid after managing only a 0-0 draw against Getafe in the latest league match.
This was yet another poor performance from the team and it raises more suspicions about Luis Enrique’s ability to lead the club to title success. Barcelona were hoping to reduce Real Madrid’s advantage to just two points. This would have been extremely important going into the winter break. Madrid will be taking part in the FIFA Club World Cup and hence will have to miss one league match. This postponed encounter will be played in the second half of the season.
Lionel Messi was once again the best player on the pitch for the Catalan club and he hit the woodwork during the full 90 minutes that he played. Barcelona had almost 75% possession, but they were unable to find a way past the opposition. They also had 23 shots on target compared to just four from the opposition. Despite the opposition unable to create much havoc, the away team were not able to break the deadlock. Sergio Busquets had come to Barcelona’s rescue, when they were struggling to open the scoring, once this season, but he was unable to prevent Barcelona from dropping two more points in the title race.
“We tried. We noticed the fatigue from Wednesday and the ball just didn’t want to go in. We’re a bit worried about being four points behind Madrid because it makes things even more difficult, but there’s a lot left of the season,” said Busquets when referring to the midweek match against Paris St Germain in the Champions League. Barcelona finished top of the group as a result of beating the French club. They have been rewarded with a high-profile match against Manchester City, their opponents from last season.
