Marco Fabián Kicks Ass
Watching Barça lose 4-1 never feels particularly good, but that the loss comes in a preseason match to Chivas, with two absolutely fantastic strikes from Fabián, does mitigate the situation. (That second one especially: he looks like he's auditioning for a poster.) The offensive engine didn't look that bad, especially considering Messi's absence and the rest of the offense's stars playing at best partial minutes. But the defense looked just terrible throughout, even considering that it was roughly the E team on the field. There needs to be an 8000 percent improvement before the Real showdown next week.
