It was a full-on party today in Barcelona as the Catalan club blasted Osasuna by a score of 7-1. Before the game, fans unveiled a massive banner to commemorate Lionel Messi’s 500th Barça goal, the one he scored this weekend when he snipped the balls off of Real Madrid and then celebrated in the most badass way…
While this photo was snapped during Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Osasuna to reach the Copa del Rey quarters, the stare of head coach Carlo Ancelotti is that of a man who is elsewhere, possibly someplace Kubrickianly dark and distant.
Like, there's bend, and then there's the wicked English Eliseu puts on this ball. The thing just decides to go completely sideways at the last moment.
Coming off a week that saw them muddle their way to a pair of draws, Barcelona defeated Osasuna 8-0 in La Liga action today. Lionel Messi had a hat trick, David Villa added a pair and Cesc Fabregas, Xavi and an Osasuna own goal rounded out the scoring. Unfair, the talent disparity in that league is.
