Barcelona might have found its long-lost mojo, as the Trident (Messi, Suarez and Neymar) skewered Celtic FC in the Champions league, leaving the Scottish champs in ruins with a score of 7-0. Messi scored his sixth Champions league hat trick, with Neymar, Luis and Andres Iniesta, 32, each racking up the points, per the BBC. Now that Messi’s back, following both an injury and a tax fraud conviction, is there any squad that can stop Barca?
Leganes hopes so. After they were promoted to La Liga for the first time in the club’s 88-year-history, they left fans surprised by beating Celta Vigo, per Yibada. Yet, the beginner’s luck didn’t last. They went to a goalless draw against Atletico Madrid before losing to Sporting Gijon, 1-2.
Diego Rico, 23, was able to secure the only goal in that game, and after three weeks in the major leagues, they’re sitting in the middle of the table at 11th place. That’s not bad for a recently promoted club, to be honest.
Can Serantes, 26, Martin Mantovani, 32, and the rest of the squad possibly win this match? Barcelona is predicted to pull off a 3-0 victory. So, it’s not so much a case of defeating Barcelona, but somehow surviving the match
Who do you think will win this match, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Barcelona will beat Leganes into oblivion, or will the Pepineros pull off the upset?
