¿Suárez, Bravo y Vidal Fuera? El Polémico Equipo Ideal De La Conmebol En La Última Década

Cada vez que alguien hace un 11 ideal de la temporada, de la década o de la historia deja abierta la puerta de la polémica. ¿Por qué este jugador y no este otro? es la discusión típica. Pero pese a las diferencias, las elecciones suelen ser razonables. Caso distinto, sorpresivamente, es el equipo de la década de la Conmebol que la Federación Internacional de Historia y Estadística de Fútbol (IFFHS) publicó hace unos días. Hay tantas omisiones que uno no puede dejar de pensar que la persona que lo hizo tiene menos fútbol que la revista Vogue.

Messi Returns From Suspension To Inspire Comeback Win Over Rayo

MADRID — Lionel Messi returned from suspension to help guide Barcelona to a 2-1 win away to Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday to reach the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey.

Lionel Messi Handed Two-Game Ban For First Red Card Of Barcelona Career

Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has escaped a lengthy ban for lashing out at Athletic Bilbao's Asier Villalibre in Sunday's Spanish Super Cup final defeat and will only serve a two-game suspension.

The Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) said on Tuesday Messi had been banned for two matches, meaning he will miss Thursday's Copa del Rey last-32 tie at Cornellà and Sunday's LaLiga match at Elche. He is set to return to face Bilbao in the league on Jan. 29.

Leo Messi Está De Regreso Y Sus Hijos Se Vuelven Locos Celebrando Su Golazo De Tiro Libre

La relación de Messi y el Barcelona ha sido bastante rocosa en los últimos meses. Después del estrepitoso 2-8 con que el Bayern Munich castigó a los catalanes en la pasada Champions League, Messi perdió la alegría y hasta trató de dejar el club. Las salidas de sus amigos Luis Suárez y Arturo Vidal no hicieron más que agudizar la crisis. Messi al final no se fue, pero una versión triste y zombie del argentino comenzó a pasearse por los campos de LaLiga. 

Messi, Neymar, Suárez, Vidal, Alexis y James: Un Dream Team Latino Para el Inter de Miami FC

Desde que Lionel Messi le confesó a Jordi Évoli en una entrevista que le gustaría jugar en la MLS, tengo una visión del argentino liderando un Dream Team latino en el Inter de Miami FC en 2022 o 2023. Un equipo que incluiría también a Neymar Jr., Luis Suárez, Arturo Vidal, Alexis Sánchez y James Rodríguez.

Lionel Messi Was Unspeakably Good In Barcelona’s Win Over Athletic Club

Maybe you were watching Manchester United vs. Manchester City in the Carabao Cup (why?). Maybe you were watching the fall of the U.S. Capitol (that’s more sensible).

Barcelona's Three Big Mistakes With Luis Suárez

At the end of September, Luis Suárez left Barcelona on a free transfer amidst tears and sadness.

Messi And Ronaldo Both Begin 2021 With Incredible Match-Winning Assists

In the year 2021, Lionel Messi will turn 34 while Cristiano Ronaldo turns 36 in just one month’s time. Playing in their first matches of the New Year on Sunday, the duo showed just how important they remain to their respective clubs by providing match-winning moments.

Over in Spain, Messi returned from his extended winter break to appear in his 500th LaLiga match for Barcelona. He’s the first non-Spanish player to reach the milestone, and among active players, only Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos (505) and Real Betis’ Joaquín (565) have more.  

Barça’s Latest Vision Without Messi: A 1-1 Home Draw With Eibar

Lionel Messi could only watch from the Camp Nou stands — dressed like an arctic explorer in 50°F weather — as Barcelona stumbled to a 1-1 draw with an Eibar side that entered the match in 17th place on Tuesday.

It was a night to forget for center back Ronald Araújo, who was at fault for Eibar’s goal, and striker Martin Braithwaite, who missed a penalty in the eighth minute.
