Anyone watching Deportivo Vs Barcelona? It's been the Messi show so far. Two goals from him.

Cracking header for the 1st goal, bit of a Messi show so far. Barca haven't been great all season, but you just can't see anyway back for La Coruna.

I know I hate on defending in La Liga a lot, but that was just atrocious. How can you back off and let Messi shoot when he's already in the area?

Should be a very good game. Although I'm afraid that Barca wouldn't be able to replicate their performance in the last match up between the two. Simeone specializes in these knockout games and I think that Atletico would go on to the next round as Barca are very inconsistent this season. I just hope that Enrique sticks to a formation and stop with the constant rotation of the players.

Awful miss from Suarez that.

That volleyed pass from Rakitic though, amazing.

Aye Suarez the belter with that miss. Wonderful ball though from Rakitic whose beginning to find good form once again.

Ronaldo sent off today for kicking out when the game was at 1-1. He really is a petulant little twat when things aren't going his way.

Barca win 6 - 0 away at Elche and Atletico are currently 2 - 1 up at half time in their match as well, so its looking like status quo for another week.

Haven't seen his dismissal yet, though he was being very abrasive and petulant by all accounts.

Don't think he's underrated, he was very highly regarded last season at Sevilla by everyone. He started off at Barca excellently too, faded a bit, but has come back and been fantastic again the last few weeks when he's played.

That was a beautiful goal by Torres! It's good to see him scoring and enjoying his football again. Random question guys, what do you think of Ray Hudson as a commentator?

Most people don't like Hudson but I love him, he's hilarious. Half of the stuff he comes out with makes no sense at all but it's funny.
