What Is It Like To Watch El Clasico In Barcelona?

By: Casey Rhine

Ohhhh El Clásico, where to begin. One of soccer's most heated, yet most deeply cherished rivalries.Few of you readers get to experience El Clasico, in Barcelona, while it's happening. This was my mission on December 23rd and should be your mission on May 6th if you are not lucky enough to go to the game in the Camp Nou.

¿Qué Pasa Cuando Messi Te Pide La Camiseta? La Reacción Del Arquero Del Elche No Tiene Precio

No tengo la certeza, pero tampoco dudas, de que varios jugadores profesionales (y también amateurs) sueñan algún día cruzarse en una cancha de fútbol con Lionel Messi solo para esperar el final del partido y pedirle su camiseta. Seguramente hay horas de preparación para cuando llegue ese momento, las cuales incluyen tiempo frente al espejo ensayando un "Leo, tu camiseta, por favor" o cosas por el estilo. Sin embargo, suponemos que muy pocos están preparados para cuando ocurra lo contrario, cuando sea el mismísimo Messi quien pida tu camiseta.

Lionel Messi Scores Two Breathtaking Goals To Steady The Ship At Barcelona

Barcelona stayed within two points of Real Madrid and five of Atlético following a comforting 3-0 win over relegation-threatened Elche at the Camp Nou on Wednesday. Lionel Messi was the star of the show with two goals before playing a large role in Jordi Alba’s third, and the Argentine is now LaLiga’s outright top scorer with 18 goals in 22 games. 

The first half saw nice bits of skill from Frenkie de Jong, Messi and Pedri, but Barcelona couldn’t find the opener with Francisco Trincão wasting the best opportunity of the opening 45.

Barça Coach Ronald Koeman More Disappointed In Cádiz Draw Than PSG Humiliation

BARCELONA - Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman said he was even more disappointed by his side being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Cádiz in LaLiga on Sunday than after last week's 4-1 home drubbing by Paris St Germain.

Barça led thanks to Lionel Messi's 32nd-minute penalty but they failed to kill their opponents off and Álex Fernández leveled in the 89th minute, ending a run of seven straight league wins for the Catalans.

Atleti’s Shock Loss Sealed By Goal From Midfield

MADRID — La Liga leaders Atlético Madrid's recent wobble in form continued as they fell to their first defeat in 12 league games when they were beaten 2-0 at home to Levante on Saturday.

Jose Luis Morales gave the visitors the lead on the half-hour mark with a deflected strike from just inside the area to deceive keeper Jan Oblak, while Jorge de Frutos knocked into an empty net to score the second in added time after Oblak had committed himself forward to contest a corner.

Luis Suárez's Unexpected Clause Keeps Atlético On Edge

Luis Suárez is LaLiga's top scorer with 16 goals (one more than his friend Lionel Messi), his form seems at an all-time high and his appetite for goals, which has never been in question, is more voracious than ever.

And it's all at the service of an Atlético Madrid that bet on him when FC Barcelona gave him an unpleasant exit. It is a deserved reward.

Cádiz Promo Video Accurately Predicts Club’s Fortunes On The Pitch

Cádiz and Athletic Bilbao took center stage on Monday night in LaLiga’s only match of the day. Cádiz hadn’t won a match since Jan. 10 to drift just three points above the relegation zone, but the club looked to drum up interest for tonight’s game at the Carranza with a promotional video that’ll leave you feeling brainless.

Ladies and gentlemen, presenting The Walking Cádiz, which is 15 seconds of a walker juggling his own (extremely squishy) decapitated head.

Watch: Messi Turns Ball Into Laser-Guided Missile — Twice

Lionel Messi equaled former teammate Xavi’s Barcelona record of 505 LaLiga appearances on Saturday against Alavés. He marked the record by scoring two worldies, two more examples that he has the greatest left foot in the history of the game.

Barcelona beat Alavés 5-1, both Messi and Francisco Trincão netting twice to bring the Blaugrana into second place, ahead of Real Madrid on goal differences. Messi was the star man in the landmark match.
