CHAMPIONS LEAGUE RESULTS | B LEVERKUSEN 2 VALENCIA CF 1 | FC BARCELONA 2 VIKTORIA PILSEN 0

The last two SPANISH FOOTBALL Clubs with CHAMPIONS LEAGUE qualifying Group match commitments, Valencia CF & FC Barcelona, returned a sweet & sour ( or sour & sweet ) result that I will now go into more detail below with the final results & scorers.

Sam for B.Leverkusen

VALENCIA CF travelled to Germany to play fellow Group E Club BAYERN LEVERKUSEN & finished losing 2 - 1 to virtually shut for the Spanish Football Club the Euro-Champions League door. Valencia started well & looked confident with JONAS scoring in the 24th min, later creating chances ( that they did not get finished ) to set the path for the rest of the game.

But the game-plan crumbled in a space of two minutes in the second half when Leverkusen player  SCHURRLE equalized in the 53rd min & when Valencia was figuring out what had  happened , SAM put Bayern ahead in the 55th min with a nice curved goal. End result, a loss for Valencia.

That´s what happen when you don´t knock-out your opponent when you have him against the ropes. They more than likely recover & return a blinding combination punch!

Iniesta goal


FC BARCELONA hosted VIKTORIA PILSEN in their Group H clash & won 2 - 0 thanks to the goals from INIESTA in the 10th min, which was brilliant with some great individual skills, & DAVID VILLA in the 82nd min.

Barcelona dominated 90 % of the match & didn´t score more because they seemed to be at half gas & attempting to entertain themselves rather than "kill-off" the match. Messi hit the post in the 2º half but sinned tonight of individuality as he attempted to score "his style". Not bad, as it was great to watch, but passing to team-mates would have been more effective.

Barça won & that was their main aim, but they looked off-phase tonight, perhaps it was all too easy.
