Lionel Messi and Neymar score twice to lead Barcelona past Elche

Despite Barcelona's 6-nil win over Elche, ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno still believes Barcelona can still make plenty of improvements in defence, but their mistakes can be forgiven with the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar scoring goals in bunches.

Barcelona achieved a comfortable 6-0 away win against Elche in Matchday 20 of La Liga. Star attackers Lionel Messi and Neymar both had braces while centre-back Gerard Pique and winger Pedro added a goal each to lead the team's dominant performance. The club enjoyed 77 percent of possession, created 12 goal-scoring chances and attempted 11 shots, eight of them were on target.

Luis Enrique opted to rotate several of his key players in a match in which the Catalans were the clear favourites. Such theory...

Luis Enrique can end crisis talk at Barcelona by securing win vs. Atletico

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop discusses Barcelona's improving form since the new year, but in particular Lionel Messi's seven goals in five matches in all competitions.

Barcelona take a 1-0 win to Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their Spanish Cup quarterfinal this week and if Luis Enrique can plot a way past La Liga's champions, talk of a crisis at the Camp Nou may finally cease.

The Barcelona coach has won six in a row following the shock 1-0 defeat to David Moyes' Real Sociedad -- a match where he started Lionel Messi and Neymar on the bench -- and a place in the semifinals of the Spanish Cup will rubber-stamp Barca's revival.

With just one defeat in 18 matches,...

Barcelona star Dani Alves shows off new 'teddy bear' trainers

Proving, once again, that wealth is no measure of taste, Lionel Messi has taken to Instagram to share Dani Alves' brand-new trainers with the world.

Presumably costing an absolute fortune, Alves' customised sneakers are not only bright, glittery and golden -- they also have a teddy bear's head sewn into the tongues. Because? Fashion, that's why.

Luis Enrique has big decisions to make with Barcelona's lineup vs. Elche

Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique insists that his side fully deserved their 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid in the first leg of Copa del Rey quarter-finals.

All has gone right on the pitch for Barcelona since the fallout of the first result of the New Year and Wednesday night's narrow 1-0 Spanish Cup win over Atletico Madrid was another step in the right direction.

Make no mistake, the quarterfinal tie is far from won and next Wednesday will see another equally tight encounter in Atletico's Vicente Calderon between two sides with very differing styles that have matched each other very closely in recent duels.

Bayern Munich stay top as Barcelona make their move

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth delves into Shaka Hislop's power rankings where Manchester City fell off the map, while Lyon, Benfica and Southampton all made moves forward.
Barcelona's talisman Lionel Messi scored a decisive goal against Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Copa del Rey match.
Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique insists that his side fully deserved their 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid in the first leg of Copa del Rey quarter-finals.

The top four remain the same in Shaka Hislop's latest countdown but Barcelona's improved recent form sees them return to the upper echelon.

1. Bayern Munich (no change)

Mercifully, the Bundesliga season restarts in just over a week so this space will soon be filled, once again, by comments about actual games. In the meantime, why not catch up on Pep Guardiola declaring love for one of his players, Arjen Robben claiming he was bitten by a crocodile and a busy week for Pepe Reina

2. Real Madrid...
