    Just get's boring watching these * dive about, all that ability and they just love to fling themselves to the ground at any chance.

    2 of the worst dives I have ever seen from 2 Real players this game. Absolute muppets and no bookings.

    Isn't even a contest this game..

    Just full of diving and cheating and one side and poor shadow..

    You feel like if Barca could really be arsed they could score when they want..

    Even Suarez who is still quality but painfully slow..

    Asensio is such a gifted player but looks as clumsy as it gets tonight. Pique also with brainfarts every now and then.

    Big Pique has turned the clock back at times here tonight, that said Real have played to his strengths.

    Barca buried Real Madrid's league hopes. What a beautiful evening.

    Pique was everywhere he's a machine on his game.

    Asensio reminds me of Commons but with pace, his touch, dribbling and ball control is very average and clumsy although not really bad but he strikes a ball really well.

    Asensio looked like the real deal 1-2 years ago, but has stagnated ever since. I think the Commons comparison can be made because he's low on confidence - otherwise he didn't come across as clumsy. once he's stepped up his game he will be fine again. He might need a change of scenery.

    Indeed. He struggled initially which did not surprise since central defender is typically one of the most demanding positions at Barcelona but really proven to be worth every penny of his transfer fee. Still believe a central defender will need to be acquired in summer but De Ligt probably going to be too expensive, sadly

    Lenglet and Pique have looked far more promising than Pique and Umtiti imho.

    Well, Samuel is a big question mark going forward - no question. His knee issues may prematurely curtail his Barcelona career tbh due to the degenerative cartilage that may not even be resolved sufficiently from surgery
