After winning the match against Slavia Prague, Barcelona player Lionel Messi became the first player to score in 15 consecutive Championship Leagues. Captain Messi gave Barcelona a good early start with a first time finish after an exchange of passes with Arthur.
Later in the match, Slavia Prague deservedly leveled the score when Jan Boril poked Lukas Masopust’s pass from 16 yards. But Messi’s free-kick pushed Luis Suarez at the back post and his cross-shot hit went in off Peter Olayinka.
Barcelona is in top position in La Liga after winning six consecutive games in all competitions. The game results are keeping Ernesto Valverde’s side on top rank of Group F after taking seven points from three games and three points above Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund. According to Footy Blog, both the sides met at the San Siro in the group’s other game with inter winning 2-0.
Barca is lucky to go three points clear at the top and Slavia is looking more from the game. Prague had more chances than Barcelona such as shots and effort on target. In the game, Martinez was the best player to watch but Argentina striker harmed his copybook before Candreva’s first Champions League goal, when poor spot-kick by him was saved by Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burk.
