It was the game nobody in Barcelona wanted to
play, after the passing of Tito Vilanova. Sergio Busquets was in tears during
the minute’s silence before the kick-off. It was clear football was the last
thing on any of the players’ minds. But Messi, one of the players Vilanova coached as
a teenager in his first spell at the club, got the winner that enabled Barça to
come back from being two goals down against Villarreal. Before his customary goal dedication to
his grandmother, he pointed to the sky alongside his teammates to dedicate the
goal to Tito.
