Did anyone else saw ter stegen reaction after that penalty save . Amazing guy
+2
Suarez was amazing. Pedro missed a similar chance from a similar pass from a similar position. Only then one realises the value of a good finisher.
Enrique was good yesterday, he probably realised that the double pivot was not really working and was bold to change it immediately. The was for me a sign of man who is dedicated to the club, and not bothered about his or anybodys ego etc. Also saw messi playing alot centrally, dont know if it was tactical or it just happens in games. Good game by Alves and Matheiu on the wings too.
Few key points to focus on in today's game.

-Messi did great today with everything. I am nobody to question him or suggest anything, but like why doesn't he just hit a ground ball into the back of the net like he used to? He always chips now.

-Blessed to have Bravo

-Rakitic completely changed this game with his introduction in the second half. He was the reason we were dominant in the second half.

-Dani Alves was outstanding today as he was everywhere on the pitch. The few times he was in our attack and tracing back, Rakitic filled in for him at the back perfectly.

-Adriano needs to be replaced this summer. I love the guy for all the good times, but we need a better backup.

-Pique needs to find his form again because he's had a few very bad games recently including today.
+1
Pique is alright to be honest, not bad.. I know made a couple of mistakes, but not that bad that he has to find form again. He'll be alight in next one IMHO..

Pique does good when Maschi is next to him. Pique Matheui just don't work IMHO.
+2
of course........the inevitable Malaga defensive screw up and easy Ronaldo tap in
Malaga pull one back !!!
omg....Penaldo missed a penaldo!
+12
No need to call names
+3
@malik but he's right though
+14
But it's childish though
+3
FFS don't want real to go down like this , benzema is struggling with injury , bale just got injured , out for 15 days and will surely miss tie vs atleti and now modric just get off after a heavy tackle to his knee .
+1
This is all part of the game. I personally don't care as long as they lose. Let them go down. Although I would never wish an injury on any player, it happens.
+3
Injuries are part of the game. I don't remember anybody saying messi is still the best player when he struggled with his hamstring injury for almost a year.
+4
I think Malik means it'd be more satisfying to know you beat us at our best. Can't argue with him there, it's a shame injuries are hitting us so late.
+2
Hikmat , exactly !!

You guys struggle during the period modric was out , now initial assessment say he will miss atleti derby . Although for bale , I'm quite sure number of Madrid fan might be actually happy the he wont play against atleti
Modric will be out for 5-6 weeks. Not that I'm being pessimistic but I think our season is pretty much done.
Yup just read that , it's not offical though , but if that happens his season is done .

Come to think of it , we too missed Suarez for 2 months and I remebr we have to relay on our B team players a lot at start of this season ( munir & sandro in particular ) its all about how you grind on results during this sort of period .
Beginning of the season is one thing, now every game is crucial. Plus throw in Champions League, which is up for grabs right now.

I'm hoping it's nothing serious, for the mean time grinding out 1-0s is all that matters.
+1
We did beat them at their best though in Camp Nou and so did Atletico. If we are going by results, both Barca and Atletico have beaten Madrid once while Madrid out of the 4 games have only won 1.

Edit: as for injuries being beginning of the season or late in the season, it all comes down to the manager. Lucho made a lot of rotations earlier on and we suffered because of it too just so our players weren't exhausted at this stage. If Carlo didn't do that and played the same XI every game then it's his problem. That doesn't mean we didn't beat you guys at your best, it just means we were smarter when it came to player fatigue.
This is an article I read a few days ago about the influence of asst manager unzue at barca. He has managed to fix what has been our achilles' heel for the better part of the last decade.

Up until last year all our opponents had to do was lob a ball into the box and it would go in without much effort. Now when we take a set piece our opponents fear us. Brilliant work from a guy who doesn't get much credit or attention.
+2
From every ball in your box being a possibility of conceding to every ball in their box being a possibility of scoring.

Mathieu's addition and Pique's rise in form also help a lot.
Dani Alves:
10 tackles, 3 successful dribbles (as many as Neymar), key passing outlet up front all game long. I've not been impressed by Dani after 2013 up until the start of this season, but he's really doing well again. We must not let him go.
