Football - Liga Barca complete remarkable comeback to keep slim title hopes alive La Liga, El Madrigal - Villarreal 2 (Cani 45, Trigueros 55) Barcelona 3 (Gabriel OG 65 Musacchio OG 78, Messi 83) Barcelona kept their slim title hopes alive in dramatic fashion, coming from two down to claim a thrilling 3-2 win over Villarreal. Goals from Cani and Manuel Trigueros gave Villarreal a 2-0 lead with just 25 minutes left to play, but two own goals and a strike from Lionel Messi kept the Catalans within four points of Atletico Madrid in their first game since the passing of former coach Tito Vilanova. However, the victory was marred after a banana was thrown at Barca full-back Dani Alves - the Brazilian responding brilliantly by picking it up off the turf and eating it. Villarreal grew in confidence as the first half progressed and came close to opening the scoring before the break, with Marc Bartra clearing Javier Ignacio Aquino’s strike off the line with keeper Pinto stranded. However, the hosts did take the ...

Barcelona defender Dani Alves says every member of his team will help Tito Vilanova through a battle with cancer.
Valladolid 1-3 Barcelona: Blaugrana battle past plucky Pucela Despite the absence of coach Tito Vilanova, the Catalan giants ensured they headed into the winter break without tasting defeat so far this season despite a late scare Lionel Messi Barcelona made it 16 wins from 17 Liga games this season as they survived a late comeback from Valladolid to come out on top 3-1 at the Jose Zorilla stadium. With Tito Vilanova recovering from surgery, Jordi Roura took charge of first team affairs for the Catalan giants and there was little chance of an upset as the visitors dominated throughout. Xavi opened the scoring in the first half before yet another goal for Lionel Messi on the hour mark. Javi Guerra set up a tense ending with a late strike but Cristian Tello secured all three points with a stoppage-time strike. Roura's temporary reign at the Barca helm almost got off to the perfect start as Dani Alves centred the ball after a great through-ball from Messi. Alexis Sanchez was in plenty of space in the area but ...
Arsenal are eyeing a move for Barcelona full-back Dani Alves according to reports in Spain. The Brazil international has fallen down the pecking order at the Nou Camp this season, with new manager Tito Vilanova often preferring either Adriano Correia or Martin Montoya in Alves' prefferred position.
''This could be the last season for Villa and Alves in Barcelona reports Marca'' Both have not been able to impress Tito Vilanova as they are clearly no longer undisputed starters in the Barca team. The situation could change by the end of the season but at the moment, it seems unlikely that it will. A year ago, under Pep Guardiola, this notion would have been unthinkable. The competition within the Catalan team is intense and the ageing players are losing grip on a starting position. Spain’s all-time top scorer, Villa, is desperate to not miss the 2014 World Cup after he had to sit out the successful defence of the European Championships due to injury. Dani Alves has a similar story but the 2014 mega event is taking place in his home- country, Brazil. Barca do not intend to force Villa out but if he wants to leave, the club will not stand in his way. However, the Catalan club has considered selling Alves at the end of last season and this January could be his last in Barcelona colors.
The Barcelona striker Leo Messi , apparently recovered from the blow to the knee he suffered last Wednesday, exercised again this Saturday with the group Barca continued Saturday preparing their next league against Betis with a matinee to which Leo Messi has been incorporated. The Argentine striker was brought smoothly with the rest of his teammates after working in recent days at the gym because of the blow to the knee he suffered in the game against Benfica on Wednesday. After training the Barca striker has received the OK from the medical services of the club so it will be available to Tito Vilanova to travel to Seville , where on Sunday the club faces the Betis. Have also been practiced with the team Bartra, Alexis and Dani Alves, while Abidal has done work outside. Bartra, BUT NOT CALL discharge But Leo Messi is not the only note to note in the call in which Barca have also entered and Alexis Dani Alves . The two players, along with Marc Bartra , have been discharged from medical and travel to Sevill ...
Tito Vilanova's side have equalled the best ever start to a domestic campaign and could go one better with a win over their struggling Basque visitors PROBABLE LINEUPS BARCELONA:Valdes Montoya, Pique, Puyol, Alba Xavi, Busquets, Fabregas Pedro, Messi, Iniesta Athletic Bilbao:Iraizoz De Marcos, Ekiza, Amorebieta, Aurtenetxe Herrera, Iturraspe, Muniain Susaeta, Aduriz, Gomez Barcelona defender Dani Alves will miss Saturday's Primera Division encounter against Athletic Bilbao with a hamstring injury. Alexis Sanchez, Marc Bartra and Isaac Cuenca all remain sidelined, while Adriano (illness) is a doubt. Athletic Bilbao are set to be without right-back Andoni Iraola, who suffered a muscle injury during training.
A History was made in the 14th minute when coach Tito Vilanova sent on Martin Montoya to replace the injured Dani Alves - completing a team full of La Masia products for the first time in the modern era. Not even Vilanova's predecessor Pep Guardiola managed the feat, fielding a maximum of nine homegrown players at any time. Brazilian substitute Adriano Correia broke the monopoly in the 75th minute, by which time Barca were four goals to the good. In the era of cosmopolitan swings, Barca provides an answer.
Barcelon vs Levante From the 13th minute, when Martin Montoya replaced the injured Dani Alves, until the 75th, all of Barca's players, and coach Tito Vilanova, were products of the club's legendary youth academy. 11 players from the same academy on the field representing the same team, a first in the history of Soccer. Well done Barca!
Martín Montoya has been another of Barça’s success stories so far this season, repaying Tito Vilanova’s faith in him with some excellent performances as cover for the team’s injury hit back line and speaking to the media on Thursday he admitted: “I’m really happy. I was hoping to play, but I didn’t expect quite so many games”. “Alves and I both like attacking” Dani Alves is generally seen as the team’s first choice right back and Montoya has no doubt about the Brazilian’s right to the spot: “he’s the best full back in the business, even though he’s not at 100% right now. I’ve got to learn from him I’d love to take over from him one day”. Montoya also sees a similarity between his and the Brazilian’s style of play: “Dani and I both love attacking football. We are okay as defenders too– we try not to let our opponents settle, but Alves has so much talent – I’ve still got to improve tactically”. Time to recover Montoya, who was one of the Spanish squad who made ...
I wish Tito Vilanova would let Dani Alves play. Alves is the best rightback in the world and makes football fun to watch.
Barcelona captain Carles Puyol makes his return from injury this evening as the Catalan side face Real Zaragoza at Camp Nou in the Spanish Primera Division. The Spain international has been out of action since suffering a dislocated shoulder against Benfica in the Champions League, but returns to the starting XI tonight and will partner Gerard Pique in central defence. There is another slightly surprising selection by Barca coach Tito Vilanova as Martin Montoya starts at right-back in favour of Dani Alves, with the Brazilian having to settle for a place on the bench. The integral midfield trio of the hosts features Xavi, Alex Song and Andres Iniesta. David Villa is rewarded for his current form by earning a start this evening. The former Valencia man has been in excellent form in the last few games and netted for Spain against Panama during the week. He will start on the left-hand side with Pedro and Lionel Messi making up the attacking frontline. Zaragoza start the match without Portuguese striker Helder ...
Barcelona have been given a boost before today's game against Madrid-based Rayo Vallecano as Dani Alves has been given a medical green light. Tito Vilanova, however, won't be able to count on Javier Mascherano whose ban has been upheld.
Following on from the thrilling 4-5 win in the Riazor stadium, the players have begun their preparations for this Tuesday’s Champions League duel with Celtic in the Camp Nou victory away to Deportivo. The squad reported for training at midday on Sunday with the aim of recovering from the Saturday’s evening’s game and preparing Tuesday’s CL group home match against Scottish champions Celtic. Seven from the reserves Apart from the senior players, a number of youngsters were drafted in from Barça B: Tello, Oier, Sergi Gómez, Sergi Roberto, Rafinha, Patric and Planas. Carles Puyol and Dani Alves, injured against Benfica and Real Madrid respectively, were also present at the Club’s training grounds but exercised away from the main group. Gerard Piqué remained in the gym. The build-up to Celtic FC The next training session will be at 6 pm on Monday and the first fifteen minutes will be open to the media. A press conference featuring Tito Vilanova and Pedro will also be held at 5 pm. On Tuesday, the ...
Tito Vilanova has in my opinion done very well so far. He's shown he's not afraid to take risks to get results, as evidenced by substituting a striker/winger for a defender when the team desperately needed a goal.
Dani Alves: I'm looking forward to seeing Messi & Neymar together at Barcelona The Brazil international hopes to see his compatriot make the move to Camp Nou in the future, and is pleased to see that Tito Vilanova has embraced Pep Guardiola's philosophy
It started with a win. Tito Vilanova's team kicked off their Champions League with victory at home to Spartak Moscow on Wednesday, coming from behind to win 3-2, just as Real Madrid had done 24 hours earlier against Manchester City. As usual, Barcelona's midield was majestic, and their attack astonishing. But it was hard to make a case for the defence. Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique are two of the world's best centre-backs, but when they are missing, it shows. The Barca captain is sidelined with a knee injury and unlikely to return for over a month, so when Pique departed with a knock in this game, it left the Catalans with a back line made up of Dani Alves, Alex Song, Javier Mascherano and Adriano. No wonder Victor Valdes looks nervous. Alves spends most of his time in the opposition half as an unorthodox winger and handed Spartak an equaliser as he inexplicably turned the ball past Valdes, while Mascherano's lack of pace had allowed Emmanuel Emenike to escape down the right in the first place. Song, to h ...
Lineups confirmed and may I ask Tito Vilanova, "What the *** !" David Villa, Dani Alves, NOR MESSI are starting against Getafe. The one and ONLY logical, reasonable reason I can think of this is being so is seeing as how Iniesta (midfielder), Alexis Sanchez (striker), and Jorda Alba (LWB) are our three injuries, each in a different segment of the field. So instead of starting 3 of the usual starting XI players that usually play a whole 90 minutes do so seeing as how they've all three just have a 3-4 day break of playing their World Cup Qualifying games with their respective teams. I'm sure that we're going to proceed as normal as far as strategy, but about 5-10 minutes into the second half, we'll possibly sub on all three highly ranked WORLD CLASS players as Getafe's stamina begins to dwindle. *SIGHS!!* LA BARÇA!
Where was Puyol? Where was Dani Alves? Where was David Villa? Where was Fabregas? What was Tello doing on the pitch? What was Andriano doing in that wing? What is Tito Vilanova doing?
Now Alves attempts a through ball to Alexis Sanchez, but he's nowhere near his target. Bring back the beard Dani. 7′ Dani Alves chases a long ball that runs just beyond him and out of play. Big news: the Brazilian has shaved his mighty beard for tonight's game. I almost didn't recognise him. 6′ We've settled into a nice ebb and flow now, with each side exchanging neat passes looking for an opening. On balance, though, it's Madrid who have settled the best - they are not giving their opponents a moment's piece out there. Some tasty tackles are flying in, but most of them fair. For now. 4′ Ronaldo's first run of the game is greeted by 90,000 jeers from the crowd. Followed by a cheer as the Portuguese is brought down. Expect that to be a recurring theme tonight. 3′ Turns out not, as the ball is played short before Khedira makes a dangerous run into the box... only to be flagged offside. As you were. 2′ The first free-kick goes the way of the visitors, as Javier Mascherano brings down Ozil around 35 ...

Perfect test in Tanger Tito Vilanova’s second pre-season match was just as successful as the first and the new manager’s team is starting to fire on all cylinders. Messi (3), Alexis (2), Dani Alves, Sergi Gómez and Deulofeu all netted for Barça, the first two scored their goals before the break. In the end, a total of 21 of Tito Vilanova’s players had time on the pitch, only Pinto played the entire 90 minutes. The team will now have a week to prepare for the next friendly of the summer. The match will be against Paris Saint-Germain. Complete dominance FC Barcelona took control of the match from the starting whistle. The Catalans pinned Raja Casablanca back into their own half as the Moroccan team quickly tried to fend off the Azulgrana threat by stacking their defence. Raja could do little, however, to keep the ball out of the net in Barça’s first goal as Alexis fired Barça ahead after he was assisted by Dani Alves. 0-5 at the break With the 0-1 on the scoreboard, the Moroccan side upped their ...
