3-2 now, Eto'o!

As predicted Iniesta was hauled off at half time and replaced by Mark Van Bommel and Bar
ça are looking much the better side as a result. 'dinho is playing superbly, Eto'os goal a toe poke in after Marquez nudged on a corner across goal (after Andrade had gone off with what looks like a nasty injury) Sylvinho has also looked very good and I'd much rather see him start ahead of Van Bronckhorst on Tuesday. Giuly has come on for Larsson but has yet to do anything of note. There's been a total of eight booking thus far, five for Depor, who have been kicking Barcelona out of it at times (it's been nothing like the Madrid derby though which featured almost 60 fouls).

With all of three minutes left now Deportivo a looking jaded and out of it. Tristan has been dreadful since he came on, I don't recall his name being mentioned 1nce by the commentary team. In fact they have yet to have a shot in the second half.

And that's it. A good comeback. It was fairly comfortable in the end. If they defend like they have this evening on Tuesday though...
