What Lionel Messi did in the first 45 minutes against Girona, no other player in the world can do. Two incredible goals, an assist for Luis Suarez and a recital of passes and stratospheric plays. We ran out of adjectives a long time ago for the Argentine star. But the best thing is he is capable of outdoing even himself with amazing, magical and unclassifiable performances... Like the one in Saturday's Catalan derby. A derby which will go down in history for Messi's recital.
Messi drove Barça to antother victory in a week in which they can setence (even more) La Liga. A week with nine points up for play which has started in the best possible way with the hammering against Girona. On Thursday, it's Las Palmas, and on Sunday, the decisive battle against Atletico Madrid at Camp Nou. The game against the Rojiblancos will mark the route to the title. If Valverde's side beat Simeone's men, the championship will end in March.
Does anyone dare to doubt that Messi's the best player ever?
But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Let's enjoy the genius of the best player of all time like he deserves. Because Messi is the No.1 in the history of the game. Or does anyone dare to doubt that? The same day that Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace against Alaves (and handed a penalty over to Benzema) and in Madrid they began to boast about the Portuguese international, Messi responded. He responded with a superb performance, worthy of the best player to ever step on to a football pitch. No one compares with D10S.
