Before we start with this one, I have one question for you. What would you do to overcome one of the best goalkeepers in the world? Seems like Barcelona have the right – and perfect – answer. Let’s just use Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. Pretty simple, isn’t it? Playing against 10-men Atleti for a good part of the game, Barcelona suffered to beat the Colchoneros. The main factor of the Catalan suffering to solve the game before the 85th minute has a name and surname. Jan Oblak.

He simply closed the goal and was giving Messi & company a hard time. However, Oblak nothing could do to stop Suarez at the 85th minute, and then Messi, two minutes later. I feel kinda sorry for Oblak though. He worked so hard to guarantee at least one point, but it ended up being useless. It’s kinda the Atletico Madrid karma lately. Anyways. Following the win, Barcelona is 11 points clear on top of La Liga, and could even confirm the title next weekend, depending on a combination of results.

To continue with the speech that the title was possible, Atletico had to win. But they saw everything go down in the 27th minute of the first half when Diego Costa saw a straight red card for complaining. Down to 10-men, Atletico fought and played bravery at the Camp Nou. The Slovenian goalkeeper, Oblak, saved a certain goal at least five times. It seemed impossible to overcome Oblak. Not to Suarez though. The Uruguayan opened the scoring with 85 minutes, in a powerful strike on Oblak’s corner. Two minutes later, Messi did his thing. He drove forward from his own half, got into the area, and fired home past Oblak. Clinical finish. Classy touch. 2-0 Barcelona.

With this goal, Messi surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo in goals scored in the top 5 European Leagues. The Argentine has 415 goals, as the Portuguese has 414. In addition to it, Messi also overcame another legend. With the 2-0 win over Atleti, he surpassed legendary Real Madrid goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, in number of wins in La Liga. The Spanish goalkeeper has 334, as Messi has 335, and counting…

Barcelona reached 73 points and opened 11 points ahead of Atletico Madrid in the top of La Liga. With seven games to go, everything leads towards another Catalan title. I personally think that it’s not even a matter of “if”, but “when” it’s going to happen. However, we need to recognize Atletico’s efforts as well. It’s not easy to face Lionel Messi’s Barcelona in the Camp Nou with one man less for almost 70 minutes. Fair play to both.
