Hard to argue with JunaFran isn't it?

Well then. Just as Real could have disappeared off into the distance, a win at Betis would have left them a massive eleven points clear, they instead lose for the second time in three games (if you add in last night's defeat in Roma it's three losses in four) Barça, thanks to an incredibly fortuitous penalty award late on against Saragossa, are a mere five points back. So a week after the title race being done and dusted, it's back on again and with the blaugrana hosting the hopeless Levante at the weekend it's likely to stay on. I saw very little of the game as I was in work late late (I caught like twenty minutes of the second half) so...

Between now and Sunday there's the small matter of a visit to Parkhead and Celtic. Eto'o is back and will probably start with 'dinho yet again on the bench. Iniesta sat out the Saragossa game so he will be back in midfield with Deco and Toure with Xavi sitting this one out. With Zambrotta still out injured the back four is likely to be Puyol, Milito, Marquez and Abidal who I'd expect to cope with whatever aimless long balls that Celtic can throw at them. Doubt it'll be a great game so I'll be watching Milan. 0-0 or 0-2 Barça.
