  • argentineLover: Busquets absence happened

  • Once upon a time, there was a team called Barcelona, who dominated the world..

  • MESSI <<<<<<<<<<<<< PEDRO LOL!!

  • @papadpapa You've neglected to mention Messi's dribbles won: a staggering 6! Moreover, as I understand it, other stats not included above are used to calculate a player's rating, e.g. no. of key passes.

  • Victor Valdes is playing out of his mind!

  • You have to give credit to Barcelona. Forced to play a different type of game, purely on the counter at times but they were brilliant at it. Rayo are great at getting possession but must learn to make it pay. Sometimes they get silly and dive in too much. At times it's like they are playing for possession stats rather than to win.

  • I strongly recommend that you guy review your rating system,and can some one explain how u give a player with 70% Pass accuracy and 3 shot on goal plus 1 assist a 9.2 rating. I always check your ratings because i thought it was one of the most accurate, so please don't disappoint me.

  • Barcelona pass success 76% Aerial Success 70% Possession 45% wtf happening?

  • I'm a Barca fan and I don't think Messi deserves a 9.2 rating. He had a good game and considering he provided an assist, he should get 8-8.5.

  • First time since 2008/2009 Barcelona loses posession in a match...also they've scoring(including today) a few goals from counter-attack, playing a lot more long balls...really interesting whats Martino doing.

  • Barca only 45%? WTF.

  • richccfc: Yes, but the "old Barca" is not dead. They just accept to change their style from time to time, depending on the opponent and of their form.

  • Rayo may be a good possession team but Barcelona aren't playing for it as much any more

  • 4th goal assisted by neymar! not xavi

  • No, Rayo are a great team in terms of possession, especially at home. It is always difficult to struggle, even for Barcelona.

  • The old Barca is dead and gone

  • Bayern 5 shots on target = 4 goals, Barca 3 shots on target - 2 goals :)

  • WTF? RAYO 53% Possesion at HT?

  • Rayo are unlucky to be behind but that really was a dreadful penalty from Trashorras. Adriano is a little lucky to not have got a second yellow. This super high pressure tactic from rayo is interesting. more possession at ht against barcelona is very rare (53-47 at HT)

  • rayo is pretty good at home. i think it should be a decent win for barca but hopefully they dont expect it to be a breeze and end up not getting a good result.

  • Bartra should play and montoya too Rest masche or pique I would like to see a messi hatrick.

  • Easy pickings for barca.. atleast 2+ GD

  • well obviously barca are the favorites, bit I like the upsets. I predict a 2-1 win for vallecano
