They won with the same result in the Champions League, and now in the Primera. They played Zaragosa away, and in a hard-fought match, they won. Both goals were scored by (you’re guessing) Messi. Andres Iniesta played almost the whole game, but was substituted in the late minutes by Thiago, another Barcelona product who has a bright future. Iniesta was razor-sharp today and played a great game.
Zaragosa played the only way Barcelona can be played — defending and waiting for a counter-attack. That didn’t work out, obviously, and they lost.

Saturday, 20:00CET, Camp Nou. The big derby between Barcelona and Valencia was played. Valencia was sitting at the top of the table until then, and Barcelona wanted to beat them in order to jump higher on the table (they are the defending champions, after all). However, things didn’t start as well as expected. Valencia dominated in the first half, which is very uncharacteristic for Barcelona. They were leading by the end of the first half. In the second half, the brilliant Barca midfield duo showed why they are the best in the world — Xavi made a brilliant pass to Iniesta who scored, and it was 1-1. The second goal for Barcelona came later through a header from Puyol (assist by Xavi).
Andres Iniesta played an amazing game, dominated the midfield, showed some fine skills of ball control and whatnot. It seems that he will be leading the Barca midfield in this season.

Andres Iniesta has today signed a new, improved contract with FC Barcelona. The contract lasts until 2015, and his buyout clause is 200 million euro.
After an amazing last season, the club decided to reward Andres with a new contract. His previous contract lasted until 2014, with the buyout clause being 150 million euro. However, the club decided to increase those numbers — and keep him safe from potential buyers.
Iniesta was very happy regarding this. “I want to end my career in Barcelona. This is the club which treats me amazingly, and I love being here.” He also thanked Joan Laporta and Txiki Bergiristain for always being there for him and trusting in him.

Andres Iniesta has finally gotten the green light from the Barcelona medical staff. That means that he has fully recovered from the injury and which caused him to be out for about three months.
He will be able to take part in the coming game FC Barcelona will play against Getafe on Saturday. He probably won’t play the whole game, as Guardiola will save him for the clash against FC Inter in the Champions League.
