Barcelona Vs Sevilla Highlights: Barcelona still seem quite shocked from their Ac.Milan match in which they lost 2-0 as they were set to face Sevilla in their latest La Liga fixture.
The visitors took the lead through Botia in the 1rst half but Barcelona fought hard and completed the comeback and seals yet another victory for them.
Despite having overcome Sevilla, it still seems as if the defensive structure of Tito Vilanova’s squad is making a number of mistakes and now teams are taking this into notice. It’s not the same team as some years ago when labeled as the best team in history.
Getting back into the actual game and the hosts implanted their traditional tiki-taka and possession style of play with short but quick passes throughout the entire pitch although Sevilla was looking quite comfortable just defending in their own half and waiting for a moment to counter-attack.
With 3 minutes remaining on the 1rst half Sevilla took the lead after Rakitic launched a free-kick over to Coke who brought it down and crossed it over to Botia who headed it and tucked it just over the reach of Victor Valdes.
It did not take very long for the home team to respond and tie the match as Daniel Alves running down his usual wing delivered an inch perfect cross over to David Villa who scored the equalizer at the 52nd minute.
Alexis Sanchez has been going through a rather tough period in these recent weeks as he has not been performing adequately or as expected since his transfer from Juventus and so he was replaced in this 2nd half by Cristian Tello.
The substitution made a big effect in the game as Tello and Messi made a number of combinations throughout the match which troubled the opposition’s defence until they managed to finish it up with the Argentine boy wonder Messi tapping it home and scoring the winning goal.
