Fantastic first half so far. Looks like a very even match.

Barcelona's pressing though... Shocked Shocked

That pitch looks like my ass.

Villareal with a bus and Barca struggling to get going. Great pressing though, which is something that has been great since pre-season under Lucho.

Btw, we actually have two CB's starting banana

Villarreal makes the thuggery and Barca get the yellows. La Liga refereeing as its purest.

Pedro and Munir have been really out of their depth and it's just Messi against Villarreal defense atm. Neymar has to come next half.

Mathieu probably prevented goal by putting it against own post. Very Happy

Neymar starts where he left last season, the guy just can't score.

we were so flat that first half with Pedro and Munir up top. And then it took too long the 2nd half before we got them out, and we don't have legit goal scorers on the bench to replace them with. Neymar should of been that guy but he continues his form from last year, missing many shots

And just like that, Sandro of all peoples scores lol

and jesus christ is Mathieu making me nervous with his clearances. He literally kicks in the direction of where the Villareal attack usually is. Done it like 8 times this game

Good win. Lucho showing trust in the Masia has worked well in the first games.

I think Pedro's days are coming to an end. He doesn't really offer anything positive going forward.

Neymar's finishing was poor and slightly lazy if I'm honest but his pass to Messi resulted in the goal.

Mathieu was horrendous. Every time I've seen him play CB for Barcelona so far he just hasn't looked like a CB. I'd go as far as saying Mascherano is better in there except for aerial presence.

Mathieu prevented a goal, but he used at least 3 of his 9 lives.

We improved immensely after Neymar came on, if he can kill his finishing demons, we will be golden for this season.

Terrible game from us. Villareal made it hard but we found it very hard to break through.

Glad for 3 points but can't be too happy with the performance. Neymar not showing quickness of mind when he smashed the ball into the player on the ground instead of simply lifting it above him :facepalm: Did help when he came on however.

Most tackles in two games

7 Busquets
6 Messi
5 Alves

hmm

Villareal is going to give trouble against anyone in Madrigal.
I'm happy with the win.

Messi has been playing like his old self. Probably doing it to help himself get past the wc loss...which is good for us

Bad news, Barca fans...

Messi's injured. Minor injury tho, its an overload in the right adductor muscle.
