Barcelona is no doubt one of the cleanest and most talented soccer teams in the world. The reason for this? They have complete faith in each other. When Barcelona plays, no one looks at the faces, they look at the jerseys; there are no grudges, no preferences, they're a team.
Barcelona has bred stars since the beginning: Puyol, Xavi, Dani Alves the list goes on. But this year the team is whole. They have a solid defense, an amazing mid field,along with a deadly attack.
Messi is a perfect striker. He can score from outside of the box, he can execute on 1 on 1's and makes it all look like it's second nature. He is no doubt one of the greats, right up there with Maradona, and Pele. Lionel Messi is unstoppable, and makes the Barcelona offense deadly.
But without build up and possession, attack is nothing. This is not a problem for Barca. There are few players that match the precision and ball handling skills of Xavi and Iniesta. It's beautiful to see these players at work; the way they move the ball, the way they keep their cool it's unlike any other team in the league.
This is why Barca is going to win it all. They move the ball around and open up the field. They are unselfish and they look for the easy goal. But the main reason is that they execute. Barca does not give up. They will play as if there's no tomorrow whether it be that they're down by 3 or up by 4, they'll will play like it's the last minute.
Barca has what they need to be great, now its in their hands.
