|Juan Mata opens Valencia scoreline|
VALENCIA CF steam-rolled BURSASPOR 6 -1 in their Group C game with Valencia CF assuring its place in the next stages of the Champions League independently of it last Group match against Manchester United. Not much to add except that it was a one way street with Valencia the only car in the lane-way.
|Roberto Soldado scored twice|
The goal scorers were JUAN MATA penalty (16th m), SOLDADO (20th m), ADURIZ (33rd m), JOAQUIN (37th m), SOLDADO (55th m) & C.DOMINGUEZ (78th m). The only goal for the visitors came from BATALLA in the 69th min.
|Pedro Rodriguez scored twice|
FC BARCELONA travelled to Athens & won away 0 - 3 against PANATHINAIKOS in their Group D match that gave, & now assures, Barça the top spot of the Group. The Greek side had a golden opportunity when CISSE went one on one with Barça keeper Valdes & had his shot deflected away from danger. The Greeks would pay dearly for this missed opportunity as Barcelona slowly recomposed itself, took control & never looked back. Dani Alves, Adriano, Xavi, Iniesta, Messi & company then put in the 4th & 5th gear & it was good-night Panathinaikos.
PEDRO scored twice tonight with goals in the 26th min & the & 68th min.
|Lionel Messi scored again|
The other goal for Barcelona came from LIONEL MESSI who put in another goal for his team in the 62nd min. Andres Iniesta played his bit tonight giving the pass in two of the three goals.
FC Barcelona now go away with their minds at ease in reference to Champions League & focus back on the Spanish League & next Monday night big clash against Real Madrid. Tweet
