Luis Enrique's team has some issues when trying to control a match, but another good result came this Saturday afternoon after beating Athletic Club at Camp Nou (3-0). In a match where the manager rested some of his most important players, like Luis Suárez, the team was solid in the areas and won it without excessive problems.
It was the manager's word since the very beginning. Rotations would be usual during the season. And this happened this Saturday as Aleix Vidal and Jeremy Mathieu played as full-backs. Paco Alcacer had his chance and he took it, scoring the opener after a great assist by Neymar. The Brazilian is playing better than ever, but he is still struggling in definitions.
Messi scored the 2-0 after another good free-kick. This time with a little more help of Gorka Iraizoz than ever.
Aleix Vidal made the final goal, but by then Luis Enrique had replaced Leo Messi and the match was decided.
