APOEL Nicosia 0 - FC Barcelona 4

Post by futbol on Tue Nov 25, 2014 6:10 pm

-

Second last group stage game. A win or a draw will certainly ensure that Barca can play for the first group place on the last match day at home against PSG. A Boeing 747 is certainly awaiting Barcelona so it could be tricky. Will be interesting to see what kind of dimension Suarez will bring against this kind of opposition.

I have a strange feeling. Once upon a time, Ibra was rapping every team left, right & centre, he even scored the sole classico winning goal, then messi complains to daddyiola, from then onwards messi goes into god mode and ibra goes into mediocrity in spectacular fashion.. Fast forward 2014, neymar beasting even being the leagues second top scorer, then, messi happens again, suddenly, against sevilla, neymar gets a one on one with the keeper, chance to get his brace, and he passes it to messi, (even after the record was equalled), and he ends up with 2 assists to messi. Against apoel neymar drops to the bench, and ....watch as messis season kicks off from here with a brace (or more), as neymar dramatically drops form...2010 all over again. *coffee*. Suarez to join in on the party.

I expect Ronaldo to shoot the ball like 10x more than his usual over the top shot count tomorrow.

And good to see Suarez get first Barca goal. Once he gets comfortable with the team and the routes he will start to put them away like nothing

Alright, Ajax just equalized against PSG. Let's hope the score remains or Ajax gets another past them. It would help us out trying to win the group

Messi nets a hat trick (all goals with his right foot)

Neymar was not used at all in this match fyi

So was Messi used on the right both this and last game and landed a hat trick both games? If thats the case then we might as well just leave him there and Suarez in the center

I think it was your best game of the season tbh. Your shape reminded me a bit of the shape you guys had when you beat us 4-0. Suarez as a blocker with Messi behind him.

Xavi is also 2 games away from being the all time CL appearances. In the top 10 the only person who can beat him is Casillas (4 behind) the rest are retired.

means Iker will likely pass him up, since Real Madrid will keep to stubbornly play him to the end regardless of his form, while this might surely be Xavi's last season in Europe (if he leaves no way he goes anywhere else other than the MLS)

Btw, Rafinha has kind of been a let down for me. had a red card today, and has yet to shine in any game he has been in (got completley owned by Celta). Has had few opportunities and been average/bad in the ones he has had. I'm sure he will turn it around

That said he is still better than Sergi lol

Huh? Rafinha was very good. Some nice dribbles. His best game of the season for sure. 2 yellows was unlucky but can happen with his aggressive style which he shouldn't abandon because of this. Just need to accept that he's more Iniesta than Xavi unlike his brother. Squad is still lacking a controlling midfielder bar Xavi but I think Rafinha has a future with Barca.

Very complete game overall. I have absolutely nothing to bemoan. I thought even Alves played great (and then goes on and gets suspended for PSG with a silly handball Laughing). Didn't rely on the same old crossing patterns against a heavily packed defense. Attacks were very versatile and through the middle. I attribute this to the dimension Suarez brings to the team as a reference point. Should have scored a hattrick tbh. Insane player. Does everything well. Workrate, leadership (watch him motivate the players after the red card Proud), brings others into play, linkup play, superb with back to goal. And of course this:



Did that turn quite often in previous games, also for his assists vs. Almeria. It's unstoppable. Such a weapon. Feels so good to have 3 individual match winners upfront. Can't wait until he fully settles, Iniesta gets back and in shape with Nerman returning to the lineup and Lucho fixing and tweaking his tactics. Hoepfully Barca can fully settle after Christmas and start rolling towards the business end of the season.

Also Mascherano must be played in midfield more often. He is nothing like what he was he first joined in 2010, he has improved dramatically with the ball at his feet. Even playmaking around the box for Messi's 3th goal. Proud

Ter Stegen DOE:

21/21 passes, 9/9 long balls. And DAT save.

http://vine.co/v/O1Th51LigVb

Barca. Proud If they can continue to build on this against Valencia away I will be a believer.

Valencia game and PSG games will be a true testament to what we can do going forward.

Great to see Suarez get a goal. Once he settles you'll see some outrageous goals from him.

Surely that shape is absolutely impossible with Neymar, Messi and Suarez though?
