Corrigan: Barca frustrated by Getafe

La Liga

Luis Suarez scores first league goal for Barcelona, celebrates with bite?

Oh dear. It was only a matter of time before Luis Suarez got back on the bite-wagon. Saturday saw him net his first league goal for his new club, Barcelona, against lowly Cordoba, but did he get carried away?

Well, no, he didn't, but the picture below sure looks like he celebrated his maiden strike by taking a chunk out of teammate Pedro's shoulder!

It's all in good fun, isn't it?!

Player Ratings: Pedro and Luis Suarez on form as Barcelona end 2014 in style

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique admits his side are a work in progress, but expects them to challenge Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid for the La Liga title.
Barcelona signed off 2014 with a fine win over Cordoba on Saturday, with Luis Suarez scoring his first goal in La Liga.

Barcelona achieved a convincing 5-0 victory against Cordoba at the Camp Nou on Saturday to end the year in style. Pedro, Luis Suarez, Gerard Pique and Lionel Messi (two) scored the goals for the Blaugrana, who signed off before the winter break with a fine win.

Luis Enrique's men managed to open the score line within the first minute in what was a decisive moment that changed the game completely. From that point on, the visitors' need to push forward to get at least one point from their trip to...

Another showing like against Huesca will keep critics off Barcelona's back

Barcelona midfielder Xavi has expressed he'd like to follow in the footsteps of former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola and be a coach at the legendary Catalan club.

Luis Enrique summed up 2014 on Friday using a very particular Spanish vernacular that is best translated up as "amazing" or "excellent," but it will not have a very happy ending if his Barcelona side fail to beat lowly Cordoba on Saturday and put on a bit of a show for the Camp Nou crowd. The fact is Barca missed a great chance last weekend to put pressure on Real Madrid at the top of La Liga and finish 2014 on the top of the pile.

Their 0-0 draw with Getafe was a huge two points lost that could...

Barcelona have enough depth and quality to survive a transfer ban

ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Sid Lowe discuss the Champions League draw, where Barcelona drew a tough Manchester City side in the round of 16.

It may have been a dead tie against third-rate opposition, but Tuesday's 8-1 win over Huesca on Tuesday night in the last 32 of the Spanish Cup again proved that Barcelona have enough talent in reserve if the current transfer ban on the club is upheld.

A decision is expected at some stage before the end of December -- word in the Catalan media on Wednesday is that it could come in the next seven days -- from the Court of Arbitration for Sport about the FIFA ban that currently stops Barca from...

Luis Enrique's Barcelona is a departure in style from the Pep Guardiola era

ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Sid Lowe discuss the Champions League draw, where Barcelona drew a tough Manchester City side in the round of 16.

The way a manager attempts to solve unwelcome problems can be revealing.

With Dani Alves unavailable for selection against Paris Saint-Germain last week, Luis Enrique's tactical response reflected his priorities as a coach. The Barcelona boss avoided trying to replace Alves directly and instead saw an opportunity to aid the players his side rely on most. After half a season it is now becoming clear that Enrique's Barça is one built on strikers, a significant shift from the Barça built on...

Player Ratings: Pedro, La Masia youngsters demolish Huesca

ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Sid Lowe discuss the Champions League draw, where Barcelona drew a tough Manchester City side in the round of 16.

Barcelona demolished Huesca 8-1 at the Camp Nou in the second leg of the last 32 in the Copa del Rey. Pedro (hat-trick), Sergi Roberto, Andres Iniesta, Adriano, Adama Traore and Sandro Ramirez scored the goals for the Blaugrana, who enjoyed 75 percent of possession, created 26 goalscoring chances and attempted 23 shots, 14 of them on target.

With all due respect to the courageous visitors, this was definitely the easiest game of the season for the Catalans. The 4-0 advantage that the Blaugranas...
