Posted on | January 5, 2009 | No Comments

After the 3-1 victory against Mallorca, Barcelona extended their unbeaten record to 16 league matches and seems unstoppable at this moment.



Mallorca took the lead after Aduriz goal but Henry, Iniesta and Toure turned the match into their favor. This is the 14th victory in 17 games for Barcelona.

With this win Barcelona remains 11 points ahead of Valencia and 12 ahead Real Madrid, the champions of the last 2 seasons.

The attacking style of play practiced by Guardiola’s team attracted a lot of admirers including Maradona. The former Barcelona star player was present into the stands alongside Lionel Messi. Maradona had only words of praise for Guardiola and is confident that Barcelona will win the title this year.

Also Luis Fabiano from Sevilla thinks that Barcelona is too far this season and the rest of the teams will have to fight for the second place.

Everything goes well also in Champios League, where Barcelona finished the group first, and will play against Olympique Lyon in the second phase.

Barcelona is in great shape and has all the chances to repeat the 2005-2006 performance, when they managed to win both, Primera Division and Champions League.
