Barcelona put a turbulent few months behind them by clearing aside Elche 3-0 at the Nou Camp in their opening session of the Spanish season.
Lionel Messi was the champion player as he scored twice and Barcelona overwhelmed notwithstanding having Javier Mascherano sent off and playing the entire of the second half with ten men.
The signs at first were bad for Barcelona.
The club finished last season with practically nothing under Gerado Martino. The club’s leader Sandro Rosell needed to leave over claimed irregularities encompassing the Neymar exchange. Also star striker Lionel Messi has been entangled in assertions of assessment evasion.
Dark feline = bad fortunes?
Yet, all the more critically, a dark feline by one means or another ended up in the stadium a moment after commencement and postponed the match. It dodged a few handles before unemotionally strolling off the pitch on its own terms. A steward figured out how to get the feline as it endeavored to enter the stands and got a few scratches for his inconveniences.
Messi, maybe taking a leaf out of the cat intruder’s playbook, avoided a few difficulties of his own to flame Barcelona ahead before half time.
Yet a couple of minutes after the fact Barcelona were down to ten men when Mascherano cut down Elche striker Rodrigues. He was the last shield and, deservedly, gotten a straight red card.
Yet you wouldn’t have realized that it was Barcelona down to ten men given their second half execution. They delighted in 79 for every penny of ownership as Messi included a second. There was likewise an objective for 18 year old La Masia graduate Munir.
The whereabouts of the dark feline is as of now obscure.

It implied Eibar needed to raise €1.7 million ($2.3 million) on the off chance that they needed to play in the top division.
However an online networking crusade permitted the club to raise the vital money to contend, a battle that Basque matches Real Sociedad presumably wish had fizzled.
