La Liga: FC Barcelona 5-0 Atletico Madrid: Match Review

In the big Spanish La Liga Match we will have FC Bacelona hosting Atletico Madrid in what will be a very anticipated game of the week. Barcelona are coming into this match on the back of playing two back to back 2-2 draws in the league. Which has happened after quite a while we have to admit. ALthough Barcelona are scoring goals their defence does not look as solid as it used to in recent years.
Atletico Madrid on the other hand are playing some good football as well and their expensive signing of Falcao is paying back nicely as he already grabbed 5 goals to his name and looks like in top form at the moment. He is someone Barcelona defence will have to keep an tight eye on.Bouncing back from Wednesday's draw with Valencia, FC Barcelona put on a master-class to defeat Atletico Madrid 5-0, with Lionel Messi bagging a hat-trick. Despite the lack of defenders and Real Madrid's earlier win, Barcelona were unplayable, and in truth, could have had much more. As it stands, FC Barcelona move on up to second place.

If you live by the sword, you die by the sword. That was applicable to Barcelona on Wednesday in the match at the Mestalla, but tonight the world witnessed yet another master-class. Starting out with a 3-4-3 formation, one could be forgiven for feeling a little anxious, especially when both Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique were on the bench.

Though it’s almost as if the team knew that us Culés were feeling on edge, and started ferociously. Sergio Busquets glanced a header wide from a corner kick, and while Tiago hit the bar for Atletico, the Blaugrana remained calm, and kept on going about their business. Unfortunately for Los Rojiblancos, Barca’s business was to destroy them.
