La Liga leader FC Barcelona resumed competition with a 4-0 victory in Mallorca on Saturday evening.
Leader of La Liga, the FC Barcelona is far from flamboyant, we know that. Lionel Messi and his teammates were besides on a defeat at the time of the Clasico against Real (2-0) then on a victory snatch against Real Sociedad (1-0). Quique Setién’s men didn’t ignite their match in Mallorca on Saturday night, but they still won 4-0. To provisionally take 5 points ahead of Real.
Some Lionel Messi was decisive on this meeting… Barça opened the entry score, with a header from Arturo Vidal (2nd), then “La Pulga” is involved on the goal of the signed break Martin Braithwaite (37th), for the first goal of the Dane with the Catalans. The six-time Golden Ball then delivered a second assist by throwing Jordi Alba late in the game (80th), before shaking the net himself with a strike from the right in overtime (93rd).
On the other hand, Antoine Griezmann, he offered yet another moribund performance under the blaugrana tunic. The French international started at the forefront and, despite his regular dropouts, did not have the opportunity to make a difference. Luis Suarez, who is recovering from a knee injury, took the place of “Grizi” for the last 30 minutes without scoring. The 2018 world champion will likely resume his place on the left wing next Tuesday against Leganés.
