Now for the biggest test you've faced all season Borovnia on Wednesday with the potential then to go on and face the ultimate test against the English, European and World Champions in 25 days time  ;-() I had Barca winning La Liga for many months now- it was always for me could they really beat the extremely strong English in the Champions League.

look the only that had Barça winning La Liga back in september, when we made our predictions :) We have as well La Copa final on May 13th. I don't know if we will beat Chelsea and if then ManU, but believe me, I never have seen a team playing like this.  :drool:

Before any games were played yes Real were predicted as the favourites by many since they were 2 time defending Champions, but from 5-8 games in it was clear Barca were going to win the League this year. The English teams of Cheldea and United are completely different for you to play against and Barca got frustrated the other night and looked as if they ran out of ideas, Messi couldn't get in the game either. It'll be mighty tough at the Bridge but the thing in your favour will be if you score for that away goal. I just hope too that we get there and face either you or Chelsea  :)) For sure you're playing fantastic football right now but biggest and only question that remains unanswered now is, will that football be good enough and right to beat Chelsea and then maybe United?  ;-()

They'll only deserve that 1 if they show they are capable of beating the English sides  ;-() the other 2 are without question- but they have to beat 2 fantastic sides to become Champions of Europe and 2 sides who will play a style of football well enough to counter Barca's strengths  :)

Good luck to your team in the 2nd leg Chris!! I prefer by far ManU advancing there, not cause it would make easier for barça if we advance as well, but it would be way more prestigious beating current champs :)

Thanks Borovnia, and the same for you against Chelsea  :) You would have a harder game with United but then if you won the Final vs us that would be the ultimate way to be crowned Champions of Europe. Tuesday and Wednesday is going to be fantastic and as long as United win then May 27th will be the most special day of all :cloud 9: :shakey:

Henry & Messi imperious

Barcelona took a giant step towards winning the Primera Division title after crushing arch rivals and nearest challengers Real Madrid in stunning fashion at the Bernabeu.

Thierry Henry and Lionel Messi both netted braces while Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique were also on the scoresheet as Pep Guardiola's treble-chasers inflicted a first league defeat on in-form Madrid since beating the reigning champions at the Nou Camp in December.

Madrid had picked up 52 points from a possible 54 since that match, but their hopes of a third successive title now look sunk after they fell seven points adrift of Barca with only four games remaining.

Barca, who also hold the better head-to-head record against their rivals, can now clinch the title next weekend if they beat Villarreal and Madrid lose to Valencia.

In last season's corresponding fixture Barca had a night to forget, starting with the chastening experience of giving hosts Madrid a guard of honour and applauding them onto the pitch for having just won the league, and ending with a 4-1 hammering.

It was a completely different story tonight, though they needed to bounce back from an early deficit as Madrid went ahead inside 14 minutes through Gonzalo Higuain.

Sergio Ramos sent over a cross from the right and Higuain rose unmarked to head home his 19th league goal of the season to send the Bernabeu wild.

Barca need not have worried though as within six minutes of that goal they had turned the game on its head with strikes from Henry and Puyol.

The lively Henry drew Barca level in the 18th minute when Ramos failed to cut out Lionel Messi's through-ball and the Frenchman coolly rolled his shot past Iker Casillas.

Henry was also involved in the goal that put Barca ahead soon after, winning a free-kick to the left of the area that Xavi curled into the area where the unmarked Puyol headed home inside the near post.

It was a two-minute spell which could have helped decide the title, as after that turnaround Barca went into overdrive.

The visitors rode their luck briefly when goalkeeper Victor Valdes did well to deny Arjen Robben, but otherwise it was home custodian Casillas who was under the cosh.

He produced three superb saves to deny Lionel Messi (twice) and Samuel Eto'o in the space of six minutes as Barca repeatedly swept through the home defence.

Casillas could do nothing to prevent Messi putting Barca 3-1 up in the 35th minute though after Madrid committed defensive suicide.

Lassana Diarra was caught in possession by Xavi deep inside Madrid territory, and with the home side's backline nowhere in the vicinity, Messi had all the time in the world to collect the ball, stroll into the area and slide a low shot past Casillas.

That was a bitter blow for Madrid after seemingly weathering the worst of the Barca storm, but it was no more than Guardiola's side deserved.

Barca continued to look the more likely to get another goal as well, with Dani Alves testing Casillas with a long-range free-kick just before the break before Iniesta went close at the start of the second half.

It was actually Madrid who would find the breakthrough though thanks to Ramos.

Iniesta was adjudged to have fouled Robben just outside the box, and from the resulting kick Ramos headed home Robben's cross at the far post to give Madrid a much-needed boost.

That euphoria was to last all of a minute before Henry restored Barca's two-goal advantage.

Xavi picked out the Frenchman's run in behind Ramos and Henry reached the ball before the outreaching Casillas. Madrid fans could only watch in horror as the Barca striker's shot slowly rolled into the net.

That knocked the stuffing out of Madrid, and they were left facing total humiliation after Messi made it 5-2 in the 75th minute, the Argentinian magician picking up a pass from Xavi before beating Casillas at his near post.

The nightmare had not finished there for Madrid though, and Pique wrapped up the scoring eight minutes from time with what was Barca's 100th league goal of the season.

Barca can now look forward to their midweek Champions League semi-final trip to Chelsea confident that they virtually have the Primera Division title wrapped up.


I HOPE WE REALLY POUND CHELSEA IN THEIR OWN BACKYARD  ://

I'm sooo disapointed...we had the trophy when just 7 mins left, we were leading 3-1 vs Villarreal. Penalty kick and Abidal dismissed again (he will miss La Copa final wednesday) and another goal with in the additional time, 3-3, we have to wait another week to celebrate this title  :mad1:

I had that on Borovnia and had started writing a pst in this thread congratulating Barca on the title as well as you and Falcon and then suddenly it was 3-3 and its going to go on. Any consolation though, just think its certain to happen the title and the moment is just put back a little bit. What devastation for Abidal out of 2 Finals!!

That's a HUGE blow for us...first we don't have Alves, Abidal, Henri is a doubt and one of our fine players Iniesta is out...I don't feel good about all this at all  :(
The La Liga trophy is in our kitty, B just the CL final is so huge right now and I want the best players there  :(

Iniesta is expected to be fit for the Champions League Final, as the injury isn't as bad as first feared. Henry still a doubt at this point.
