Lionel scores, Gonzalo and Fernando visit Sevilla

On Saturday, league leaders Barcelona took on Valencia in a match that could of shaken Spain altogether. A Barcelona win and a Real Madrid loss would of meant that Barcelona could of clinched La Liga next week at the Bernabeu at the El Classico. But, the key words in that sentence are "could of". At the 24 minute mark Lionel MESSI linked with Andres INIESTA to score the opening goal of the game. With 2 minutes to go in the first half, the Barcelona back-line(more-so Victor VALDES) fell asleep as Valencia scored twice in 2 minutes to give the home team a lead heading into half-time. With 5 minutes to play in the game, Barcelona was awarded a free-kick. MESSI of all people sent the ball into the Valencia box as the goalkeeper miss timed his run to the ball and Thierry Henry scored to tie the game. The match ended 2-2.

Later on today, Gonzalo HIGUAIN and Fernando GAGO visit Sevilla. Gabriel HEINZE did not make the team list. And Serie A champions Inter Milan visit Diego MARADONA's old club Napoli.
