The MESSI-ah to the Rescue

The Atomic Flea does it again! Just as when you thought that hope is lost, the wonder boy delivers. With 10 minutes left to play, Barcelona was already2-1 down against Osasuna.

Barca already looks self shocked, as the home side was on a verge of celebration but it did not took that all that turned into frustration. First the equalizer from XAVI, a low sliding shot goal which was set up by Dani ALVEZ in the 80th minute.

Then in the 85th minute, the magical moment arrives. Lionel MESSI lashed a powerful left-footed drive past a despairing Osasuna keeper and into his right-hand corner from outside the area. The results means that Barca will move 12 points clear of bitter rival at the top of the table.

If Lionel was the saviour Barca today, the other half Catalunya had Nicolas PAREJA to be thankful. In their match against Almeria, PAREJA’s stunning 95th minute free-kick saved Espanyol's blushes in a game that they could ill afford to lose. The match ended in a 2-2 draw.

In Serie A, Lecce came away with a 2-1 win over at Fiorentina with Jose Ignacio CASTILLO scoring the winner.

While in France, Fernando CAVENAGHI scored in Bordeaux impressive 4-0 win over Paris St. Germain.

Last but not least, way to go to the Baltimore Ravens and Philadelphia Eagles in their stunning upsets in the NFL playoffs.

There was much to be thankful for yesterday-Messi's grand goal and ManU thrashing Chelsea. It always makes my heart flutter to see ManU whup up on Chelsea, even if Carlitos wasn't part of it.
