2020/21 LA LIGA. Real Madrid stun Barcelona

The most watched football match, El Clasico ( Barcelona vs Real Madrid). The much anticipated match between these two sides has finally been honoured at the camp nou. The first round with next to take place at the Santiago Bernabeu. At the end of 90minutes it was all smiles for Real Madrid as triumph over Barcelona scoring three goals with barca getting a consolation goal from wonder kid Ansu Fati. The goal by Fati makes him the youngest player to score in El Clasico in this 21st Century. Prior to this match Barcelona looked favorite after winning their first champs league match mid week with Madrid losing. One would have said the victory would put Barcelona ahead of Real Madrid in their first encounter in the 2020/21 league match. However, Real Madrid looked the better side at the end of 90minutes. At this point I would like to express my observations of the game. I think Koeman had it all wrong starting Pedri in this game. One may argue it was just to allow him continue his fine form in the midweek champs league game where he had his name on the score sheet. However, Barcelona, Madrid game has always been a tough one with experience players and most often tactical decisions winning the game. The introduction of Pedri to me was inappropriate. Secondly, allowing Busquet, Pedri and Fati last 80minutes for me was wrong. It was obvious they were lacking stamina and needed to be subbed earlier on to allow fresh legs in to battle against the strong Madrid team. I know it will be tough for Koeman losing his first El Clasico. However , lessons should be learnt the is the second round for amends to be made. Zidane proved he is up for every El Clasico.

He had his substitution on point with Modric netting the third goal. A classic goal it was. Real Madrid looked composed and it was no surprise they won against Barca. These are early days yet to decide the winner of the league but it’s obvious Real Madrid have the bragging rights now😍😘

Messi and FC Barcelona

The past few weeks have been tough for Barcelona fans..And do u know why? Lol the world best footballer Lionel Messi had handed in a transfer request to management..he wants to end his long love affair with his favorite football club. There were lots of issues raised. Many were of the view that Messi wasn’t comfortable with the project by the club since for some years they have failed to compete in European football, others were also of the view that Messi wasn’t happy with purchases made by the club from the money received from the sale of Neymar. Many also argued that Messi was in talks with his favorite manager Pep Guardiola and therefore after the Bayern humiliation it was time for him to leave and partner again with Pep at Man. City. However, it’s been few days now and the G.O.A.T Lionel Messi has openly declared he is staying with Barcelona. A very sweet news to all barca fans. He didn’t also fail to voice out his displeasure at how things have been done in the club over the years. However, he has assured the club and fans of his professionalism even though his transfer request wasn’t accepted. Can’t wait to see him play again at the camp nou as the numerous barca fans cheer his name in the stands
