The Catalans take a wake to a living 5-0 victory at Sporting Gijon. They shows that they can manage to win while the Argentinean is out.
No problem for Barcelona without Messi ,the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is sidelined for three weeks for his injury, which occurs against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night in the La Liga match, but in the next man the Luis Enrique’s man shows that they can still manage to win without him.
Messi injured his knee in the last season at home to Las Palams in September,Luiz Suarez scored the opener for the Blaugrana’s the in the 29 minutes then Rafina scores the second one and in the second half the Brazilian wonder kid Neymer scored 2 goal and lastly Arda Turan made it 5-0.
In the Saturday match Andre Gomes and Arda Turan started with Sergio Busquets in the midfield position, with Rafina in the right forward and Neymer in the left and Sergio Roberto linking up with the defensive position.
"I watch a lot of matches and I don't see any right-back better than Sergi Roberto," Luis Enrique said afterwards. "At least for Barca, who will always have the ball. I'm thrilled that he is fitting in comfortably in that positon, although he can also play as a 'pivot' and as an 'interior'."
Lucas Digne also did well, while Neymar and Rafinha were effective on the flanks and the Blaugrana boss added: "We were better on the wing. The two full-backs did well, especially Sergi. I'm happy with how they did, although I am sure we can get better."
