Lionel Messi Scores to Bring Barca Back to Winning ways
Argentina and Barcelona skipper Lionel Messi might not leave the Spanish La Liga after all following his impressive performance with the side. He scored the only goal as Barcelona returned to winning ways with victory over Levante.
Levante goalkeeper Aitor Fernandez was very active in the game as he ensured all of the efforts from Martin Braithwaite, Clement Lenglet, Jordi Alba and Antoine Griezmann were all saved.
Aitor Fernandez was very good but there was very little he could to stop the six-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi as he struck from an unlikely angle.
Levante’s best chance fell to Jorge de Frutos, while Marc-Andre ter Stegen denied substitute Son right at the end. Barcelona returns to winning ways as they are now in the fifth-place position in the Spanish La Liga table.
Lionel Messi might still stay in the club despite speculations of his exit from the club. The win is a much confident boost for the players and more especially the manager Ronald Koeman’s side.
They followed up a surprise defeat at Cadiz last weekend with a 3-0 home loss to Ronaldo’s team Juventus in the Champions League. That defeat to Juve means Barcelona will be unseeded when the draw for the last 16 of the Champions League is made on Monday.
Lionel Messi recorded his eighth goal of the season with the strike to guided back to winning ways and send Levante to the 18th place position with just two points from safety.
