Neymar, Sanchez lead Barcelona to 2-1 win over Real Madrid

Oct 26 2013, 6:12pm CDT | by IANS

Barcelona, Oct 27 (IANS/EFE) FC Barcelona got goals from South American stars Neymar and Alexis Sanchez in a 2-1 win Saturday over Real Madrid at Camp Nou, extending their lead over their traditional La Liga arch-rival to six points.

Barcelona, Oct 27 (IANS/EFE) FC Barcelona got goals from South American stars Neymar and Alexis Sanchez in a 2-1 win Saturday over Real Madrid at Camp Nou, extending their lead over their traditional La Liga arch-rival to six points.

Brazilian sensation Neymar opened the scoring in the 19th minute of this season's first "Clasico", receiving a pass on the left side from Andres Iniesta and slotting the ball past net minder Diego Lopez.

Real Madrid's defenders signalled that Neymar was in offside position, but the referees ruled otherwise and let the goal stand.

Two minutes later, Barça super striker Lionel Messi had a chance to give his side a two-goal lead but fired a shot wide, while Real Madrid struggled to get any offence going at all in the first half.

The action heated up over the final 20 minutes of the match, however.

In the 71st minute, Los Blancos superstar Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to be robbed of a penalty opportunity when he was knocked down in the area by defenseman Javier Mascherano.

A minute later, Real Madrid had another chance to score but a blast off the right foot of Karim Benzema smashed off the crossbar and Barcelona's lead was intact.

Sanchez, a Chilean international, then all but sealed the victory in the 79th minute when he maneouvered around defenseman Raphael Varane and lofted a perfect chip over a leaping Lopez.

Real Madrid finally got a goal in stoppage time from Jese Rodriguez but it proved too little too late.

Messi was quiet in Barcelona's victory, while Welsh winger Gareth Bale, who recently transferred to Real Madrid from English club Tottenham for a whopping 100 million euros, had little impact on the match.

With the win, Barcelona moved four points ahead of Atletico Madrid, which will square off against Real Betis Sunday.

Arsenal Transfer News: Gunners Should Avoid Xherdan Shaqiri Pursuit

Nov 5 2014 1:00am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Arsene Wenger is a man that has come for some staunch criticism regarding Arsenal’s transfer policies in recent years. The big-money signings of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, in the past two summer windows, have been perceived as merely strengthening a strong facet of his team, leaving other areas unaddressed, most notably the defensive portions of this unbalanced squad. So it’s peculiar to see the Emirates outfit have been linked with ...

Arsenal Capitulate Against Anderlecht as Defensive Problems Rear Their Head

Nov 4 2014 6:12pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Arsenal are back. After two suspiciously comfortable clean sheets in succession, chaos has returned to the Gunners back line. The diabolical defending that has dogged their 2014/15 season thus far has returned.  It goes without saying that Arsenal should have won this game. Even before kick-off, Anderlecht’s atrocious record against English sides made Arsene Wenger’s team clear favourites. When Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain put his te ...

Arsenal Show Their Brilliant Best and Woeful Worst in 3-3 Draw with Anderlecht

Nov 4 2014 4:47pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

THE EMIRATES STADIUM—At half-time on Tuesday evening, Arsenal's slow start to the 2014-15 season looked to be firmly in the rear-view mirror; the Gunners were riding the crest of a wave that'd seen them win three games on the trot, and they were 2-0 up against relative "minnows" Anderlecht. But a final result of 3-3—borne from defensive lapses, concentration issues and a general easing off in the second half—saw a 3-0 lead held in the 58th minute evaporate into thi ...
