Spanish La Liga: Lio Messi, Barcelona's deadliest weapon

Thursday March 10 2011,
Tags: La Liga, Barcelona, Messi
Nothing can stop Lio Messi: Top striker in the Champions League, the Spanish Cup and La Liga.
With 33 goals in the Champions League so far, Lio Messi leapfrogged Didier Drogba and became the most prolific non-european player in the history of the competition.

Barcelona has not yet been defeated at the Camp Nou for the Champions League if Messi score at least one goal. 19 victories and 4 draws in 23 games have been obtained thanks to the Argentinean monster.

Seven goals in the Copa del Rey this season, 28 after 26 Liga matches and 8 in the Champions League have scored Messi so far this season. In the last 89 games, the Argentinean striker managed to score 89 goals, a truly fearsome record. Even more, he's also the top assist provider in the Spanish League.

Spanish La Liga: Barcelona prepares for three weeks of intense action.

Friday February 25 2011,
Tags: La Liga, Barcelona, Guardiola, Messi
Without Xavi, Carles Puyol and Victor Valdez, Barcelona visits Mallorca to maintain the top position.
Pep Guardiola is chasing two rabbits at the same time, but the dual fight might be a burden too heavy for the Cule squad to deal with. Real Madrid is not demoralized by the five-points advantage of the leaders and will try to take advantage of the slightest misstep to jeopardize Barcelona's leadership.

Mallorca will be the first rival, and Michael Laudrup's Bermellones should not be taken for granted, especially when playing at home. Mallorca claimed 23 points so far at the Iberostar Stadium, over 70% of the points obtained in the whole tournament. Barcelona will have to do without four key players, as Daniel Alves is ruled out due to disciplinary action while Xavi, Puyol and Valdez are struggling with injuries.

At least Guardiola recovers Jeffren Suarez, who's been sidelined for over a month. His presence allows Barcelona's coach to introduce rotation in his squad, something he's clearly considering as he's called Thiago Alcantara, Ruben Miño and Martin Montoya from the young squad.

Spanish La Liga: Barcelona, Pep Guardiola and 18 undoubtable players

Wednesday February 23 2011,
Tags: La Liga, Barcelona, Guardiola, Messi
"These players are worth an empire" said Pep Guardiola. Lio Messi and Andres Iniesta woke up just on time on Sunday and granted Barcelona a vital victory in the fight for the Spanish title.
Lio Messi's celebrated his 250th cap with Barcelona last week by scoring the winning goal in the last quarter of an hour. Barcelona changed completely as the Argentinean appeared in the game in the last 30 minutes, building powerful offenses along with Iniesta.

A few weeks ago, Barcelona's coach Pep Guardiola asked for the media to allow him to have faith in his players. The performance of the Blaugranas in the last 45 minutes of Sunday's game showed that Barcelona is far from taking a turn of the worst.

Barcelona must now prepare to visit Mallorca, a preliminary game before Pep Guardiola's Blaugranas lock horns with Valencia, Arsenal and Sevilla in less than 20 days. Now that Guardiola has taken the leap of faith, who can stop Barcelona from rising high to the top of the international football podium once again ?

Spanish La Liga: Barcelona And The Risks Of Sunday's Game Against Bilbao.

Pep Guardiola has a lot of work to do prior to Athletic's visit. Barcelona's coach is eager to recover from Blaugrana's third defeat this season last week in London.
February has been an intense month for Barcelona. First, the Cule squad connected its 16th consecutive victory in La Liga, breaking a new record in the Spanish League.

But afterwards, things started going awry for Pep Guardiola's boys. Their last two matches away (Gijon, to visit Sporting, and London to take on Arsenal for the Champions League) have been rather disappointing, failing to return home with three points from Gijon and falling against Arsenal 2-1.

It's interesting to notice something similar happened last year, back in February 2010, when Barcelona fell against Atletico 2-1 and tied a Champions League game against Stuttgart 1-1. Those games were a turning point for Barcelona, as they pick up 29 of the next 30 possible points.

“We’ll have to play well, and as a tight knit group. In this way, we’ll have a chance to win. It’s not going to be easy, though. I’m sure it will be a difficult match. Yes, Osasuna drew their first match, but they are a battle-hardened team and they’ll pressure a lot. I’m sure they will trouble us.”

Real Madrid celebrate Cristiano Ronaldo's opening goal against Marseille in the Champions LeagueThey’ll host bottom side Real Zaragoza on match-day 15 of the Spanish Primera Liga.

Real Madrid Analysis

Los Blancos can enter Saturday’s match full of confidence; they’ll have Cristiano Ronaldo returning from suspension and a perfect home record on which they can build.

Manuel Pellegrini will not be told twice, not even once, that losing a single point in La Liga is not an option since his side let all three points slip away against Barcelona some weeks ago.

Los Blancos’ reaction and approach ahead of Saturday’s match against Real Zaragoza will be the same as the ones that they had lately against Almeria, Marseille, and Valencia respectively; it’s playing to win at all cost by attacking at every opportunity and scoring many goals.

Two of the teams that lost on Sunday 29th will meet on Saturday evening. Real Madrid host Almeria at the Santiago Bernabeu in match-day 13 of the Spanish Primera Liga.

Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos challenges' an Almeria player during a La Liga encounterReal Madrid analysis – the big need to bounce back

They are five points behind Barcelona against whom they just lost the battle, they will be without their star midfielder Kaka, and Cristiano Ronaldo is just readjusting to intensive football.

Well, Real Madrid seriously need to bounce back as quickly as possible before they get caught in embarrassment as the race for the Spanish Primera Division continues.

Los Blancos will host Almeria at the Santiago Bernabeu in a relatively easy fixture compared to El Clasico. However, with the experience that the Spanish giants have already endured this season (the defeat to Alcorcon and the goalless draw against Sporting Gijon), they will not afford to underestimate Saturday’s tie.
