True, the FC Barcelona environment was a bit upset over the critics after the two draws against Real Sociedad and AC Milan. Winning so much –FCB won 12 of the 15 possible cups during the last 3 years- puts the pressure in each game. Noblesse oblige. And the press here in Barcelona quickly talk about a crisis. After all its their job to sell newspapers.
All usual, the answer to these types of situations takes approximately 90 minutes. Or two times 45 if you like. And what an answer it was! A fluid FCB showed why they are the best of the world. The combinations between Messi, Cesc, Thiago, Villa, Pedro, Xavi and their compañeros were as fast as lightning and left the Osasuna defense without answer. Poor Osasuna, they were just in the wrong place on the wrong moment. Poor press also, now they have to find a different story!
