The La Liga match result of the game between Barcelona FC and Villareal must have been a ridiculously interesting one. A night of goals, if you will as the reigning La Liga Champions were held to a 4 – 4 draw after a fate-defying comeback from 2 goals down. Here is a quick analysis just in case you were stuck in Lagos traffic and missed it.
If you thought that Barcelona was going to have it easy simply because they were going against a quarter-to-relegation side like Villareal, yesterday’s match would surely have spoiled a lot of people’s bet tickets big time. This is the true meaning of that fight or die spirit at its best.
“In the final games of the season the teams at the bottom always take a lot of points. They’re all going to do everything they can and we must be prepared for these type of games.” Barca Coach, Ernesto Valverde had rightly asserted before the game.
The Relegation Zone is a place nobody wants to venture near, and the most likely candidates towards the end of each season will kill almost any one that stands in their way. Ask teams in the EPL. I’m sure they know about this all too well.
Pundits say that this was the hardest 1 point earned by Barcelona this season.
Barcelona took a 2-0 lead early in the game, courtesy of Malcom and Coutinho despite Messi (The Killer) starting on the bench.
Everything looked fine and dandy…until terror struck after strikes from Chukwueze, Karl Toko Ekambi, Vicente Iborra and Carlos Bacca more than leveled the playing field.
At this point in the game, Villareal must have thought they had it all wrapped up. Then Messi came on and fear rippled through the entire opposing Team, shattering their hopes of victory when his decidedly aggressive free kick ricocheted off the bar and into the net. Suarez sealed the deal with one super shot from outside Box 18 and there ended a La Liga match result in a draw. Watch video highlights below:
