a fantastic night at the camp nou yesterday as barca started la liga’s second round with a 3-0 victory against racing santander. puyi shared central defending duties with eric abidal; our defenders plus a cool valdes kept our net undisturbed.
pedro opened scoring with an early goal (2min!), then villa forced a foul from henrique, which was followed by a successful penalty kick from the messiah — and how sweet was messi’s goal celebration!! at the half, puyi was replaced by pique because of a discomfort he felt in his left knee — nothing serious, i hope! (no news yet on this, but i hope he’ll get it fixed during recovery training) — and he celebrated from the bench as iniesta sealed the win with a beautiful golazo, keeping our top-of-the-table cushion safe by at least 4 points. congrats, barca!
