Barcelona v Ath Madrid tonight 9pm

Danger Zone

Just the tip...
1-1

Costa missed a penalty that was retaken because of Ter Stegen coming off his line early. Saul scored the retake.

Vidal still an utter diddy, just clatters into challenges like a bull in a china shop.

Actually think Vidal is a very good player but he just doesn't work all that well at Barca. Not sure why they've got him playing out on the right though. Don't think that's a strong point for him.

Both with skill and with the ability to keep running into players and getting fouls for it, including one yellow card.
It’s a clear foul really though isn’t it. If he can evade the player and stay up they have a great chance, there’s not much to be gained for getting a free kick on the halfway line.

Not really, on a couple of occasions there was absolutely nothing the player could have done to get out of his way.

Anyway. Been a decent game so far.

Been a good game.
Nothing much coming off for Messi. He has been pretty wasteful. Suarez isn’t in game at all.

the guy Thomas doesn’t look up to much but not the easiest midfield to look good against.

carassco is some player!

Vidal is a fantastic player, he's been one of the most complete midfielders in the world for a decade.

Another player that is being wasted in this current Barcelona set up.

Arsenal fans thought Carrasco was beneath them when he was linked last year. Would walk into their team.
