Cesc denies racist insults against Kanoute

Cesc Fabregas publicly denied that he blasted any racist comment against Frédéric Kanouté during the match between Barcelona and Sevilla last saturday.

As we know, Sevilla's striker reacted against Cesc and almost started a fight. That action forced the referee to show the red card to Kanouté. Newspapers today speculated that Fabregas could have told him racial insults.

Fabregas rapidly denied this version. "I have played with footballers from all around the world. I have an arabic tatoo. My girlfriend is from Lebanon. It makes no sense to suggest that I did that kind of thing" said Cesc.

Messi missed a penalty shot as Barcelona only got a 0-0 tie with Sevilla

According to Josep Guardiola, Sevilla is one of the big teams in Spain. And the final result seem to prove him right. Barcelona FC could only achieve a 0-0 tie with Sevilla last saturday at the Camp Nou.

The most valuable player of the game was Sevilla's goalkeeper Javi Varas. Not just for his impressive saves during the 90 minutes, but for stopping Lio Messi's penalty shoot in the very last minute of the match.

The referee showed the red card to Fernando Navarro and Kanoute, but that could not keep Sevilla from rescueing an important point.

Barcelona falls to the second place of the Spanish League, right behind leaders Real Madrid.

Once again Messi stands out with two brilliant goals against Racing

The 2011/2012 season still has Lio Messi and Barcelona in the spotlight. The blaugrana team defeated Racing Santander 3-0 with two great goals scored by the argentinian genius. The other one was netted by Xavi Hernandez.

The game at the Camp Nou was almost a monologue of Guardiola's team. Messi, Xavi and Iniesta - who just recovered from an injury - dominated the game and generated the goals for Barcelona. When Iniesta and Lio play together, their game turns out to be unstoppable.

Guardiola used some players that usually do not play from the first minute: Maxwell and Thiago. Both of them did a great job against Racing.

Barcelona remains as leader of the Spanish League, with 17 points. Real Madrid follows them with 16, and Valencia share the third place with Levante.
