A performance for the ages: Andres Iniesta’s masterclass in Barcelona’s 3-1 win at Real Madrid

Sunday, December 11th, 2011
To call Andres Iniesta a “big-game player” is doing a disservice to the Barcelona schemer who appears to have the temperament for any occasion, and the silky skills to go with it.
The list of huge landmark matches where Iniesta has dictated play in the middle of the park and had an indelible impact on the outcome are simply staggering.
Obviously, the 2010 World Cup final is the immediate choice but the Euro 2008 semi-final and the 2009 Champions League semi-final also stand out. Whilst Iniesta has also been imperious in Champions League finals and countless Clasicos.
Quite simply Andres Iniesta is a living legend and he has the medals to prove it. He also has a man of the match performance on Saturday night in the Bernabeu to prove that despite all the above, the diminutive playmaker can still turn it on.
And the worldwide love for Iniesta has been gushing in the hours since Barcelona’s 3-1 victory in the Bernabeu. The pale midfielder is dominating every poll for man of the match and here at 101gg we have been inundated with requests for the video below.

Andrés Iniesta: FC Barcelona's Key Player vs Real Madrid in el Clásico

Andres Iniesta is the most important man on the pitch when it comes to taking down Real Madrid. Iniesta’s creative runs and big-game poise will be critical against an imposing Madrid defense, and if there’s one man most likely to make the game-winning plays for Barcelona on Saturday, it’s Iniesta.
Iniesta takes up position on the attacking edge of midfield. While Xavi tracks back to help bring the ball up, Andrés stays focused on goal, no matter if he’s 35 yards out. Always aware of the opposing defense and the position of his own strikers, by the time Barça get him the ball, Iniesta has an ideal attacking scenario fully formed in his sizable skull.
With dribbling abilities second to none, and a fair amount of quicks remaining in his 27-year-old legs, Iniesta is a pure danger man on the ball. Inviting defenders to close him down too tightly, Iniesta can get past anybody that doesn’t give him enough respect. If space is given, he’ll eat it up quickly, getting as close to goal and attracting as many defenders as possible. When the moment is right, he’ll unleash a dagger through-ball, take a crack of his own, or win a corner kick.
'nuff said!!!
