									Spanish League - Barcelona Extend Their Lead Three Points by Defeating
Recreativo Huelva

<p>The 18-time champion of the Spanish La Liga, FC Barcelona, kept
winning this weekend by beating Recreativo Huelva 2-0 on the 11th date of
the league. This is the ninth consecutive Barcelona's win in La Liga and
the 16-straight unbeaten victory of the season.</p><p>With this triumph
Barça is now three points ahead of Villarreal and five points ahead of
Valencia and Real Madrid. During this date, Villarreal tied the game with
Malaga 2-2 and Real Madrid and Valencia lost against Valladolid and
Sporting Gijon respectively.</p><p>At the game against Recreativo,
Barcelona was mostly dominating since Messi, Thierry Henry and Eto'o had
chances to score in the first half, but the goalkeeper of Recreativo,
Asier Riesgo, saved in a great way their intentions. However, Barça's
manager Pep Guardiola, advised his players in half time to have patience
and control of the game to get the positive results they wanted to
achieve. And then, just in 6 minutes of having started the second half, a
free kick of Xavi assisting Messi gave Barça their first goal. Barça then
kept attacking Recreativo and at minute 85 the substitute Keita, who was
just arriving to the game, scored the second goal for Barcelona. Even
with Recreativo's good defense, Barcelona got their triumph and added
more points as the top team of the league.</p><p>Coach Pep Guardiola
expressed that Recreativo was an uncomfortable team to play but even so
they got a positive result.</p><p>"Recreativo were an awkward opponent
and we had to be patient but a game lasts 90 minutes so it is fine. With
these results it is not as if we are the champions, but we are just top
at the moment and of course we want to stay there", Said Guardiola.
Barcelona's rookie coach also stated that their next game against Getafe
was going to be a tough one, but his team wants a victory at that match
as well.</p><p>We have to mention that Lionel Messi has given Barcelona a
chance to create options and give positive results. In some way Messi has
been the pillar of Barça, not only by scoring his seventh goal of the
season with the Culés, but also creating plays and moving defenders to
generate spaces in the contender's area. On the other hand, Xavi the
playmaker has been incredible as well, Samiel Eto'o and Thierry Henry
have given an amazing balance in the team's attack and their coach Pep
Guardiola has disposed the asserted tactics in every game to generate
this amazing winning streak for the club.</p><p>The next game of
Barcelona will be against Getafe on November 23rd at Camp Nou in
Barcelona, followed by their next Champions League match against the
Portuguese team Sporting Lisbon on November 26th.</p><p>Pep Guardiola and
his players expect to keep their effectiveness for the next games and
will be working hard all this week to play their best, looking for the
key strategies to reach the victory once again. Doing this, the club may
add more points to their leadership on La Liga and qualify for the next
round of the Champions League.</p><p>Ally White is a top senior copy
