"OK, putting Messi on top is not original, but the Argentine got a hat trick against a good Valencia side, and against a good keeper," said Ubiratan Leal of trivela.com in Brazil. "Diego Alves was in his best form last Sunday."
"Barcelona was not in its best form, neither was Messi. But having Real Madrid on the other side of the pitch had a huge effect on this team, and Barcelona played its best game of the season," said Ubiratan Leal of trivela.com in Brazil. "It was intense, hard fought, physically and emotionally demanding. And, in this situation, Barca seems to be always one step in front of Madrid. It was like in Guardiola's time."
