Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : November 9th 2015 Contents fierce rivals are set to meet next round after
the international break.
One thing is clear: Neymar and Suarez are
giving Barcelona s fans hope that they won t
need Messi to get a good result at Madrid s
Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
The two stars lead Barcelona with 13 goals
each this season and have scored 20 of
Barcelona s 23 goals since Messi tore a lig-
ament in his left knee on Sept. 26. Neymar
scored twice and Suarez once in a 3-0 win
over BATE Borisov in the Champions League
on Wednesday. Barcelona coach Luis Enrique
left open the possibility of Messi being fit
for the big match. "Do I rule him out for the
clasico ? I can t say yes, nor can I say no.
He is recovering and recovering well," Luis
Enrique said. "We are infinitely stronger with
In the capital, Antoine Griezmann scored
a header three minutes into stoppage time
to give Atletico Madrid a 1-0 victory over
Sporting Gijon that lifted it into third place
at four points off the lead. Villarreal neu-
tralized Barcelona s superior possession in
the first half, and its patience almost paid
off when forward Samuel Castillejo tested
Claudio Bravo seconds before halftime.
But Villarreal, which was left in fifth place
after a third away game without a win, could-
n t keep up as Barcelona poured forward.
The tense, tactical match led to Iniesta, Ney-
mar and Suarez all getting booked for protest-
ing by early in the second half, before
Barcelona nearly scored when Dani Alves hit
the post in the 48th.
Elsewhere, Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki
Williams scored his fifth goal in eight days
to help beat Espanyol 2-1.
His eighth-minute opener was similar to
Neymar s second strike, as the 21-year-old
lifted the ball over a defender before unleash-
ing a powerful shot. (AP)

LONDON---Turning Liverpool into title challengers
will be no quick task for Juergen Klopp. As Premier
League pacesetters Manchester City and Arsenal
both drew yesterday, Liverpool experienced its first
loss under Klopp at the hands of Crystal Palace.
Going into the international break, the 2-1 Anfield
setback left Liverpool with five points from a possible
12 in the post-Brendan Rodgers era---and the only vic-
tory came against a Chelsea side which has lost the
majority of games in its title defence.
Yannick Bolasie and Scott Dann scored either side
of Philippe Coutinho s equalizer to give Palace a third
successive league win against Liverpool. As Palace
rose to 8th, Liverpool dropped to 10th place, nine
points from the summit.
Manchester City stayed top but could not find the
net against bottom-place Aston Villa as Remi Garde s
managerial reign in Birmingham opened with a 0-0
After Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Fer-
nando squandered chances for City, manager Manuel
Pellegrini cannot wait for striker Sergio Aguero to
return from a hamstring injury that has kept him out
of the last seven games.
Aguero is poised to be fit after the international
break---a comeback that could be essential as Wilfried
Bony limped off with a hamstring injury in the first
half at Villa Park.
"It will be easier for us to have a striker," Pellegrini
For a team that has only won once in the league
all season---on the opening day---a point was something
to celebrate for Villa.
"I am realistic, we were only threatening sometimes
but it s quite a good start," said Garde, who replaced
Tim Sherwood. "We have to believe we can be safe.
It will be a tough mission even if we have one more
At the top of the standings, Arsenal and Tottenham
also had to settle for a point apiece in a 1-1 draw in
the north London derby.
Kieran Gibbs was Arsenal s unlikely rescue act. The
defender s first league goal since March 2012 came in
the 77th minute, three minutes after surprisingly
replacing forward Joel Campbell with Arsenal trailing.
The provider was less of a surprise, with Mesut Ozil s
high ball to Gibbs at the back post his 10th assist in
11 league games.
"Overall (the substitution) worked," Arsenal manager
Arsene Wenger said. "He gets in good positions and
it shows he is an intelligent player."
Arsenal s defence had been too easily penetrated in
the 32nd minute for Tottenham s opener by a resurgent
Harry Kane scoring his sixth goal in four games. Danny
Rose s deep ball down the left flank went straight
between Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny and
Kane slid the ball past goalkeeper Petr Cech. "We
showed character and maturity," Tottenham manager
Mauricio Pochettino said after seeing his team complete
a third game in six days that yielded two wins and
Neymar, Suarez strike again
as Barca beats Villarreal 3-0
BARCELONA---Neymar scored twice and Luis Suarez
added another goal yesterday to again lead Barcelona
in the absence of Lionel Messi, this time to a 3-0
win at home over Villarreal that provisionally lifted
the defending champions to the top of the Spanish
Barcelona needed an hour of insistent attacks until
Neymar broke through before Suarez added a penalty
in the 70th.
Neymar scored an exquisite second goal in the 85th
when he used a sublime touch to flip the ball over a
defender before spinning and driving it home.
"I thought about the move before I did it, and I
pulled it off," Neymar said. "I m happy with what I
am giving the team, but I think I can improve." Real
Madrid is three points behind the Catalan club but
can reclaim the lead with a win at Sevilla later. The
Klopp's first Liverpool loss as leader Man City held
Tottenham's Harry Kane scores a goal during the English Premier League soccer match
between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium in London, yesterday.
