Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta has said that his team deserved more from the Champions League encounter with Chelsea, which saw his team defeated 3-2 on aggregate. Barcelona were coming into the match having lost the first leg 1-0 after a goal from Didier Drogba gave Chelsea an unlikely lead. It was very much expected that Chelsea will be continuing their defensive approach to the game at the Camp Nou as well. It turned out to be exactly the same performance from Chelsea, as they defended with 10 men behind the ball. It took Barcelona only 35 min to open the scoring from an unlikely source – Sergio Busquets.

After the goal, it provoked an angry response from John Terry, who was red carded for his moment of madness on Barcelona player Alexis Sanchez. Andres Iniesta soon doubled Barcelona’s advantage in the match by scoring a goal from a quick counter-attack. This 2-0 lead meant that Barcelona were also ahead in the aggregate. At this moment in time, Barcelona were heading into the Champions League final to face either Real Madrid or Bayern Munich. However, immediately after Iniesta’s goal, Chelsea went to the other hand and scored a delightful goal through Ramires.

This meant that Chelsea were ahead in the tie on the away goals. Fernando Torres then capped a brilliant defensive display by scoring in the injury time to get Chelsea a 3-2 lead. “Football has been unjust in this tie. That’s just the way it is. We once again dominated the match, but little things can be decisive in football. Barcelona will be back, though. We play football because we love what we do, and we do it for those who always support us and suffer as much as we do,” Iniesta said to the Barca TV after the match.

LIGA BBVA – Barcelona wins the first title of the season and shows hunger for more

Report by Andrew Hill

Doubts about the players soothing right after two decades of wining 8 out of the ten titles disputed were quickly dissipated during the Super Copa final in opposition to Sevilla. With a convincing 4 to victory they have demonstrated that their appetite for success is insatiable.

Following the 1st of two games versus Sevilla, exactly where they misplaced three to 1, regardless of the essential absentees that they had that day, many thought that Barcelona’s hunger for glory could have been satiated by the huge good results they experimented in the previous two years. Fact is, those speculations are very much from reality, and this previous Saturday was just a quick brushstroke of how these players will deal with every single sport of the period. They came out that day two targets down in the series, and ended up hammering their opponent 4-, leaving a really good impression of what to count on from them throughout this yr.

In contrast to their biggest rival, Real Madrid, Barcelona has let much more players out than the ones who have come in, that flip to be just two so far: Valencia’s striker David Villa and Sevilla’s multitasker Adriano, in contrast with six again ups from Madrid. This is just a indicator that there is a whole lot of rely on put in the gamers that develop up in the minor leagues, and there should not be any doubts about the success that this children could have in the group, when players like: Messi, Iniesta, Busquets, Bojan, and Pedro, just to identify a couple of, have followed that same path that has led them to consolidate their game between the finest players in the world.

Rumors about new back again ups joining the crew only entail Liverpool’s Javier Mascherano as of nowadays. The only point that the coach Joseph Guardiola has left obvious with regards to the chance of new gamers becoming a member of the group is that he thinks that with the arrival of a defensive pivot, the roster should be completed and all set to deal with competition. That is precisely the placement that Mascherano’s profile matches into, exactly where Barcelona at the moment only has Busquets, right after promoting Toure to Manchester Citiy. In case Mascherano or a person else doesn’t arrive in, Guardiola doesn’t seem to be to have a difficulty dependent on children like Oriul Romero and Jonathan dos Santos.

With the starting of the Liga BBVA this coming Sunday, the beginning line up for the debut versus Racing de Santander should be: Victor Valdes, Dani Alves, Pique, Puyol, Abidal, Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta, Pedro, Messi, and Villa. This will be 1 of the strongest, most gifted line ups in Europe, with the massive distinction above the relaxation of counting with 8 of the FIFA Entire world Cup champions, and as if it wasn’t sufficient, with Lionel Messi as effectively.

What will transpire with Ibra?

The only issue that is unclear about Barcelona’s long run is the position that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will have this season. Very last 12 months he arrived as the most pricey transfer that the club has actually completed, 45 thousands and thousands Euros plus Eto’o, and had a good start off, but then lost prominence and was relegated to the bench by Bojan. The media talks about a doable interest by Milan, wherever he may well immigrate searching for more probabilities to play, since for this year David Villa will count with several much more possibilities than him. A lot of clubs have demonstrated curiosity in his companies, but his higher wage of 12 million Euros is undoubtedly an inconvenience for them. Guardiola favored to stay peaceful about this problem, and so do we.
