Suárez relaunches Barça

suarez-penalti

Luis Suárez defeated Athletic almost single-handedly. The first attacking move in the game decided what was to follow. A ball played in behind the Athletic defence led to a tussle between Suárez and Etxeita, the Uruguayan won it and found himself in a one-on-one with Iraizoz. The goalkeeper brought him down, penalty and red card. With only three minutes on the clock Athletic were down to ten men and a goal behind. With Barcelona to face.

This was too much. Even for Athletic, who specialise in putting Barça on the ropes. In truth, there was really no game here, it was just a matter of time. This Barcelona side are in no mood for giving anything away, they seize everything within their reach because of the voracity of their forward line. Neymar made it two before the break.

Barcelona provided the football, while Athletic, diminished in numbers, defended and looked to get back in the game on the counter. They had a couple of chances, but their opponents’ penetration gave them little chance.

Athletic stayed back in their own half with two banks of four amassed, hoping to be saved from further damage by the bell. But that was never going to happen because Barcelona never took their foot off the pedal, not for one moment and not even with Messi hauled off at half time as a precautionary measure.

Iniesta led the Azulgrana attack once again, showing what great form he is in at the moment. With Messi off, Suárez hit a hat-trick and Rakitic finished off a move from Neymar played in from the goal line.

Barcelona, 6; Athletic, 0
