Barca Vs Arsenal.

Well Barcelona dominated the game from start to finish and it was GREAT. It felt good to see Arsenal get hammered after their lucky win in London. The first goal by Messi came via an assist from Iniesta. Cesc Fabregas, the arsenal captain and graduate from la Masia (Barcelona's youth academy), attempted to make a back heel passes that went to Iniesta and he passed it to Messi. Lionel then made a chip shot to put Barca ahead before half time. After half time Arsenal finally began to attack. Now it was a real game, both teams played the same style. Each tried to control the game by controlling the ball. Arsenal failed miserable after only having 26% possession the whole game. Arsenal's lone goal came from an own goal by Busquets. I understand it's difficult to play as a Centre back if you are normally a midfielder but he did pretty well except for that. With both Puyol and Pique out of the game Barcelona resorted to some younger players to plug in the holes. All in all after Xavi scored the next goal with an assist by Iniesta the game seemed done. Barca's third goal came after Pedro was brought down in the box for a penalty. Messi then scored his second goal to make it  3-1. Arsenal had no shots all game. Barca played very well today and now they advanced to the next stage of the Champions league. I'll let y'all know (im texan leave me alone) when their next fixture is set so for now
