Hoping Liverpool can exhaust Real before meeting you guys? You really seemed to have turned around your form drastically in a blink of an eye. And Messi could stay put beyond this season after all.Forgettable performance tonight, haven't struggled to create chances like that since the turn of the year.
But Dembele's volley in the 90th minute got Barca a 1-0 victory over Valladolid at Camp Nou and huge three points. A steal basically given the football on display.
With Akuna's goal sinking Atletico Madrid yesterday as Sevilla solidify their fourth place, there is now only one point between Atleti and Barca. Real Madrid are three points off the top. With nine games left the title race is officially between three clubs now.
And one of the most important games of the season is this weekend as Barca will travel to Madrid for El Clasico. A draw would still mean Barca depends only on its own results as Atletico are coming to Camp Nou in May, but there is no room for calculation now. The guys earned to be in this position with a great turnaround, barely dropping points since mid December. Got to keep this going.
On today's note, before the game Leo was honored for recently becoming the player with most appearances for FC Barcelona by receiving a framed shirt from the season when he made his debut... In 2004. Huge sigh of relief that this isn't the only positive to remember tonight's game by. Felicitats, Leo.
