¿Qué Pasa Cuando Messi Te Pide La Camiseta? La Reacción Del Arquero Del Elche No Tiene Precio

Seguramente hay horas de preparación para cuando llegue ese momento, las cuales incluyen tiempo frente al espejo ensayando un "Leo, tu camiseta, por favor" o cosas por el estilo.

Lionel Messi Scores Two Breathtaking Goals To Steady The Ship At Barcelona

Barcelona stayed within two points of Real Madrid and five of Atlético following a comforting 3-0 win over relegation-threatened Elche at the Camp Nou on Wednesday. Lionel Messi was the star of the show with two goals before playing a large role in Jordi Alba’s third, and the Argentine is now LaLiga’s outright top scorer with 18 goals in 22 games. 

The first half saw nice bits of skill from Frenkie de Jong, Messi and Pedri, but Barcelona couldn’t find the opener with Francisco Trincão wasting the best opportunity of the opening 45.

Barcelona winger Francisco Trincão scored his first goal for the club to snatch a 3-2 win away to Real Betis on Sunday as Ronald Koeman's side pulled off a second comeback victory in the space of four days.

Barcelona racked up 79 percent possession and 36 shots (20 on goal) in Wednesday’s Copa del Rey match against Granada, 29 more shots that the host. The end result was a 5-3 victory that was anything but easy, despite the final score and the wildly mismatched statistics. 

Messi, El Hombre De Los 673 millones De Dólares, Encumbra Al Barcelona Con Un Tiro Libre De Museo

No hay que estar dentro de la cabeza de Lionel Messi para saber que el partido contra el Athletic Bilbao iba ser más extraño de lo normal. Primero, el argentino volvía de una suspensión de dos encuentros después de ser expulsado ante el mismo equipo vasco en la final de la Supercopa de España. Luego, la atención sobre su figura tendría un foco diferente tras la portada del diario “El Mundo”, el cual filtró el astronómico contrato que tiene el “10” con el Barcelona: 555.237.619 euros (673.919.105 dólares) por cuatro temporadas. O sea, $167 millones al año.

Lionel Messi’s 650th Barcelona Goal Is An Unstoppable Free Kick

Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann fired Barcelona to a 2-1 win at home to Athletic Bilbao in LaLiga on Sunday, avenging their recent defeat to the Basque side in the Spanish Super Cup final.
