Barcelona Defeats Sevilla Despite Losing 2-0 at 50′

Barcelona managed to extend their winning streak even further after striking twice against Sevilla in the final minutes of the game. Los Rojiblancos previously played Real Madrid, whom they beat 1-0 due to Piotr Trochowski’s early goal. Despite being up 2 goals at the 50 minute mark, they were not able to extingish Barça’s fire, though.

Piotr Trochowski scored the first of Sevilla’s two goals after striking home at 26 minutes. Alvaro Negredo doubled their lead just short of the 50 minute mark, making the possibility of having a double win over the top two teams in Spain even more realistic.

Barcelona was not ready to give up though, as Fabregas began their series of goals after making it 2-1 just 5 minutes later. 18 minutes before the end, Sevilla was reduced to just 10 men, after Gary Medel was taken off the pitch when fouling on Fabregas. Cesc’s purpose had not been served yet with that first goal, though. After an assist from Messi, Fabregas easily slid the ball right under goalkeeper Andres Palop to equalize the score at 2 goals each. Just two minutes later, the Argentine forward set up another goal for Barcelona. Villa put the icing on the cake as he scored their 3rd and final goal far into stoppage time, preserving their 100% winning rate.

Barcelona currently has a total of 18 points on the La Liga scoreboard and is 11-points ahead of arch-rivals and 2011-2012 La Liga Champions Real Madrid. Sevilla remains in 5th place, behind Mallorca, Atletico, Malaga, and of course Barcelona.

Real Madrid, currently in 9th place after receiving only 7 points from their first 5 games, will play Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday. The first El Clasico of the season will occur next weekend, where undefeated Barcelona will take on downcast Real Madrid in an event that fans all around the world will watch.
