Real is on the top position of La Liga point table where they played 19 matches and gathered 46 points where Barca played two more match than Real but still one point behind. However, in last match of Barca, they defeated Athletic Club at Camp Nou yesterday by 3 – 0 goals where Messi played the major role. Argentine captain scored one goal where Paco and Vidal score a goal each. However, Neymar could not find any net yesterday as well but he was more fearsome at the field. The opponent defenders were kept busy by handling him. Luis Suarez did not play yesterday where in his place coach staged Paco and Paco presented a goal in return. Excluding Paco Alcacer, Lionel Messi was also in great form as usual and so, they got an expected victory over them.

However, at Camp Nou on Saturday, the apprentice of Luis Enrique destroyed Bilbao by 3 – 0 where Paco stroke first and the legend Messi made the goal difference double. And finally, Vidal confirmed the match by scoring 3rd goal. The most disappointing matter is that Neymar finished the match with no goal again though he was so amazing but he also missed couple of shots.

At Camp Nou, Bilbao could make a good start. In the 3rd minutes of the game, Garcia was failed by Stegen and later in 11 minutes Inaki missed the mark again. Since then, Barca started to attack and just after seven minutes, Paco score the first goal for Barca with the help of Neymar. This was the first league goal for Paco in this La Liga season.
