The match that took place this Sunday between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid ended in an absolute 4-1 Barcelona’s victory. This also means that I’ve definitely won the bet I made on Barca’s victory.
Everything seemed to be going well for Atletico Madrid, especially after Falcao opened the scoring in the battle with FC Barcelona by chipping Barca’s goalkeeper with his left foot. After Falcao’s goal (that came in the 31st minute of the match), Barcelona followed with 4 amazing shots: Adriano brought the first goal for his team in the 36th minute, followed by his teammates Busquests (in the 45th minute), and Messi, who scored in the 57th and 88th minute.
Here you have a video with the summary of the match:
Atletico made an impressive start, struggling hard to maintain their advantage before half-time. Unfortunately, when they failed to clear a corner, Barcelona took maximum advantage of their chance when Busquets calmly scored the second goal, before Messi’s 24th and 25th goals of La Liga season.
Regarding Atletico’s performance, the coach of the team Diego Simeone stated that his team tried to be competitive and gave the best they could. On the other hand, Mourinho said that even if Cristiano made a nice performance, his teammates did not and missed clear opportunities to score.
All in all Barcelona achieved a nice and deserved victory, proving their status once again.
