Spanish Football – Barcelona Placed a Record in La Liga With Their Win Over Deportivo

The current leader and unstoppable Spanish team, FC Barcelona, placed a new record in the history of La Liga by completing 50 points in the standings at halfway of the season. Barça defeated Deportivo La Coruña in great way, with a 5-0 final score on Saturday. The scorers for Barça were Lionel Messi, Samuel Eto’o and Thierry Henry, which together have become a very important part of the Barcelona’s success this season, having scored among the three of them a total of 41 of the 59 goals that the team has converted in the 19 games played so far in the season.

Barcelona has remained unbeaten since the opening game defeat against Numancia and has been consistent in their performance. Even so, for their coach Pep Guardiola, there are certain things his team can still correct and improve to fully get in their best shape.

“There are still things we aren’t doingufabet สมาชิกเว็บแทงบอล well. I got a good feeling, but there are always errors that need analyzing and correcting. We’ve managed to take a lot of points, but there are still things we can achieve and there remains a lot of the season. What comforts me is this spirit. The day we lose that, it will lead to defeat,” expressed coach Guardiola.

During La Liga Day 19, Lionel Messi scored in great way his 12th goal of the season at minute 21, when with his speed; beat three players from Deportivo and made a great shot in the corner of the right post. Just six minutes later, Henry headed a pass from Daniel Alves scoring his first goal of the game. Afterwards during minute 42′ Eto’o was left alone to convert the third goal for Barcelona. After halftime things got worse for Deportivo when Henry scored the fourth goal, his 11th of the season. Finally, with just four minutes left in the game, Aranzubia got a bad tackle on Carles Puyol, resulting in a penalty. Samuel Eto’o converted the penalty and added his 18th goal of the season.

With this victory, Barcelona is now 12 points ahead of Real Madrid and Sevilla, who are in second and third place of La Liga table respectively, with just one goal of difference between them. Behind Sevilla is Valencia with 34 points.

This is one of the best seasons that Barcelona has had, not only in the Spanish League, where they have lost only seven points this season, but also in the Champions League, where they’re currently in the knockout stage, and the Copa del Rey, where they have passed through the quarterfinals. However, for the players and the coach Pep Guardiola, this season could make history if they win the title, but it will only be a story if they don’t. So for them there is no time to stop, they need to continue improving and working hard to achieve their main goal, the Spanish League title.
