February has been a “bad” month for Barcelona for over 3 years now. Some people say that they deliberately slow down in February in order to prepare themselves for the season’s end. February of this year was no different — they struggled to play their usual game. However, tonight’s game against Valencia showed that Barca hasn’t forgotten playing football. They completely dominated the game and won comfortably 5:1. They could’ve scored 10 more goals (literally), but Valencia’s goalkeeper Diego Alves was absolutely brilliant and saved what no other keeper would save.
Gerard Pique played alongside Carles Puyol, but often went forward and even played LW for a few minutes.
