Barcelona Champions league (1st leg)

Sorry for the late update guys. School has been in the way. Let's get this done quickly
Okay for the first leg Barcelona dominated at the Camp Nou. The first goal was made by Iniesta. He scored in the 2nd minute within the box with a quick break away. He just slid the ball underneath the keeper, it was a nice finish. Alves then scored in the 34th minute. This goal came from a mistake from the keeper. The lobbed pass was good to Alves but the Keeper should have gone forward but he didn't and he paid the heaviest price, a fantastic goal. I also enjoyed the Brazilian celebration shared by Adriano and Alves. The next goal came off a corner. Pique scored the first goal in the second half at minute 53. It was a simple pass from a corner and a kick by the defender to make it 2 in 2 matches. Shaktar came back to make it 3-1 from a freekick. Yaroslav Rakitskiy then exploded to make it to the ball and made a shot that Valdes could not stop.  Keita then made the gap wider in the 60th minute. He made his goal with a power shot in the upper left hand corner. Great finishing, great, passing and great speed. The goal that shows Barcelona's supremacy. Xavi then ended it in the 86th minute. The goal was created by Alves and finished with a light touch by Xavi.
