What a second half performance by FC Barcelona as they scored three goals against hated rival Real Madrid. 3-0 was the final score. The first half was a different story though with Madrid winning possession and controlling the half. FC Barcelona must have looked at themselves in the mirror and given a pep talk at halftime. They started to play classic Barça football with great passing and controlled possession.

Luis Suarez began the scoring in the 54′ on a great counter attack led by Ivan Rakatic who passed it to Sergio Roberto who then provided a perfect little cross to Suarez who put it in the back of the net with a hard low driven shot. The best player in the world, Lionel Messi scored the second in the 64′ on a penalty kick that resulted from a hand ball on the goal line which of course led to a red card for Dani Carvajal. Lastly, defender Aleix Vidal who came on in the 90′ just as fresh defending legs found himself in prime position in the middle of the box and received a pass from Messi. Vidal shot it on the ground underneath a diving Keylor Navas (Real Madrid’s goalkeeper) to make it 3-0 in the 90+3′ and to just rub it in the face of Madrid, which I loved to witness. And, of course I can’t forget to leave out the German goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen, who once again put on a clinic making some huge saves and adding another clean sheet to his résumé. #ForçaBarça
