match report

Along with Spanish pop/rock band Estopa, Antonio Banderas was present at last night's game and had a few things to say about Barça.
"I can see Barça as champion in all three competitions. They’re unstoppable and I will risk saying they will win the three titles."

"It was a beautiful game of football with a fundamental star - Andrés Iniesta. He’s surprising everyone. Whichever team you support you have to take your hat off to Barça. They’re making us enjoy the season and they’ll give the fans a lot of pleasure."
