Messi’s successful penalty on 90-th minute kept Barca in La Liga on Sunday. The first early goal by Messi boosted up the whole team. But then Unai Lopez evened the odds with another point. Finally, Neymar earned penalty kick which made the game for Barcelona.
Now Barca is behind the Top leader Real Madrid and has in total 51 points. That’s two points above Sevilla, but still, it could be much worse.
Remind that champions lost tremendous game vs. PSG with 4-0. It gave a huge impact on the players. Especially was criticized Luis Enrique. The criticism isn’t new, but it hints at Barcelona’s huge issues.
While the game vs. Leganes Luis Enrique chose simple tactic which consists of an avalanche of goals. But it couldn’t be realized because of Leganes’s disciplined defense. Messi, Neymar, and Suarez literally struggled in vain. And only the penalty gave Barca chance to win.
So Catalan giants move forward and we’ll look after their steps in La Liga.
