For me it was his overall performance, these last few years his first touch has looked very clumsy. At his best he's a great dribbler and he has good strength, it's pretty unusual for a goal scorer to have, but it looks like it's coming back. Luckily it came together for that break away goal in the Nou Camp right at the end, but that run the length of the pitch was the longest 15 seconds of my life. I thought he was going to take a heavy touch and knock it away, or step on the ball or something. He rounded Valdes and yeah, the rest is history
The midfield is still abject though, the ball goes straight from the defence up to Hazard or Oscar, it totally bypasses the sitting players. They should be the ones setting things up but they don't get near the ball. Neustadter basically have a free reign in there, it's worrying but not surprising.
