FC Barcelona lightened the Stadium of Light

●Sánchez 6' ●Fàbregas 55'
(October 2, 2012)

FC Barcelona was tensed with those two players. They bought Alexis Sánchez from Udinese for €37,000,000. In almost same price they also bought Cesc Fàbregas from Arsenal. Last season the two stars were not brilliant. They played almost 80 matches but only scored 30 goals together.


The start of this season of those two were not good too. But from their goal FC Barcelona beats Benfica in their home venue. In Lisbon’s Estádio da Luz or the Stadium of Light FC Barcelona was amazing. Benfica was also attacking and that’s why FC Barcelona could play by their style of own.

Messi was playing like a midfielder as he did in the last match against Sevilla. He was trying to create chances, not to score. He created the chances of all two goals. In the 6th minute of the match he entered into the left end of the box with his high speedy trademark run and crossed the ball. Sánchez made it 1-0 from very close range with just only a touch of his right foot. In the 55th minute Messi again showed a great play by getting passed four defenders and passed the ball to Fàbregas who made it 2-0 with a clean finish.

In this winning match FC Barcelona was frustrated too. Busquests was shown a straight red card and Puyol was injured. His left arm was broken and he is out of the field for two months.

Barça’s unbelievable victory

Fàbregas has not been getting goals since last January. But he leveled the score 2-2 when FC Barcelona was trailing by 2-0. Barca got full three points from two goals in the last four minute of the match.

FC Barcelona

Six wins out of six in La Liga, which is the best start of FC Barcelona’s history. In the hundred years history only four times they started with six consecutive wins in the Spanish La Liga.

FC Barcelona’s win was really unbelievable. In the 26th minute Piotr Trochowski got the first and Álvaro Negredo made it 2-0 in the 48th minute. Sevilla was dreaming to beat two Spanish giants within two weeks. From Piotr Trochowski's goal Sevilla has beaten Real Madrid few days ago.

Though Fàbregas got one goal in 53rd minute Sevilla was hoping to beat FC Barcelona, because till 88th minute the score-line was 2-1. But Fabregas again leveled the score in 89th minute. After that from Messi and Villa’s one-two FC Barcelona got their third and winning goal in the 3rd minute of extra time.

Iníesta was absent and that’s why Messi was playing like a genuine midfielder who created the chances of all three goals. Andrés Palop was amazing under the goalpost though his age is 38. Messi might get two goals if he didn't save. First time he saved in 13th minute. But his second save was awesome. Messi’s free-kick was almost going in the net but Palop saved it by a touch of finger.

Messi could get another but Sevilla’s defense was strong. FC Barcelona might get one more goal if Garry Medal didn’t clear Pedro’s shot from goalline. But Medal saw red card in 70th minute which was the turning point of the match.

FC Barcelona

Last win came against Granada. Till 86th minute the score-line was 0-0. FC Barcelona attacked one after another but Granada’s defense defended every attack very strongly. Goalkeeper Toño was playing as he is the Great Wall of China. FC Barcelona shoot twenty times on goal and eleven of those were on target. Granada’s goalkeeper saved almost ten times.

At this stage Xavi showed the way. He came on in place of Thiago who was playing badly with lot of wrong passes and his shots were all far away from the target. Tello was also on for Adriano and then FC Barelona became more attacking. Whatever, they couldn't score.

The first goal of the match came in 87th minute. Xavi’s powerful shot from the box found the net at last reflected from crossbar. In the extra time Barca got another though it was an own goal by Gomez.
