Deportivo Vs Barcelona: David Villa Fires Barca Into The Lead

Well, that first goal didn’t take long to come, did it? Lionel Messi, as he so often does, drifted in from out wide to thread a fantastic ball into David Villa who had lost his marker before firing between the legs of Aranzubia. How good is Lionel Messi? The assist was out of this world, the little genius just makes it look so easy, taking four or five defenders out of the game with one nonchalant stroke of his right boot.

As Barcelona strive to prove that there is life after Xavi, many journalists and pundits often claiming that Xavi is the life and soul of this Barca team, this isn’t a bad start! Quite how anyone can doubt the credentials of a team that contains Pedro, Villa, Messi and Iniesta is beyond me. For Depor, Adrian had a fine chance to put the home side ahead, but he hesitated thinking he was in an offside position and the chance was lost.

So now the first goal has arrived, will we see two or three more from Barcelona?
