The author of the second goal against Villarreal has a total understanding with Messi. Messi’s pass made Cesc's goal tonight.
Since he came to Barça, Cesc Fabregas has scored 3 goals in 4 games, 1 in the League, 1 in the European Super Cup, and the 3rd in the Joan Gamper Trophy match. In the last 2 games, on Friday in Monaco, and at the Camp Nou tonight, Cesc scored from a Messi pass. It’s a connection that provides excellent results.
The Academy, the basis of this connection
With regard to the Cesc and Messi partnership, Fabregas explained that: "I know him so well. I know how he plays and what he’s going to do. It's easier to be a striker with him than making the goals". One of the reasons for the great understanding between them is that "we’ve been educated in the same way. A lot of training sessions, a lot of games, lots of years, and we play from memory".
Cesc’s adaptation, therefore, has been more than satisfactory. Cesc said that "they’re helping me a lot. It’s fantastic playing with them. For me it’s a pleasure and an honor to be part of this team".
Here we reproduce statements from more players, after the game.
(Goal number 101 at the Camp Nou): "The important thing is that the team has won a difficult game, especially after the Super Cup"
"Cesc came from here, so we said he would adapt easily, and he’s demonstrating that it’s true"
"We hope to carry on doing the same things, and calmly. We’ve started well, despite it being a tricky fixture"
"I’d like to thank my teammates for a job well done"
"Luckily I'm scoring and we have to make the most of that"
"Barcelona and Madrid are the 2 top teams ... we’ll try to win everything".
"We played really well as a team. A great job done together”.
