MESSI Gets The Better Of Kun As Barca Hammers Atletico

While news regarding Diego’s presents in Italy may raised a lot of eye brows plus the more uncertain news that we’re getting pertaining to the National Team must be going through our mind; perhaps we can put a side all of them and recap on what turned out to be another smashing Saturday for Lionel MESSI.

While he was resting and enjoying in his Spa, I was hoping maybe Diego might be watching Lionel facing his son-in-law Kun AGUERO in the Nou Camp. No surprise it was MESSI that got the better of Kun as Barca won 5-2 with another sublime performance from the Flea.

First he scored Barca’s second after receiving a through ball from Xavi and then fired with his left foot in the centre of the penalty box. Then he had an assist in Seydou KEITA goal to put Barca 3-0 up. Kun AGUERO pulled one back for Atletico just before half time.

Another goal from Diego FORLAN for Atletico looked to be final goal of the night. However with barely seconds before the final whistle, MESSI fired another, this time with his right foot to the bottom left corner.

In a double joy for Catalonia, rising star Juan FORLIN was also on target for Espanyol in their 3-2 away win over Deportivo La Coruna.

Whether or not is there is any future for him in the National Team, Lucho GONZALEZ contribution for Marseille simply can’t be ignored. He first scored then went on to assist in two other goals as his side hammered Montpiller 4-1.

Still in the French League, Monaco trash Nice 4-1 which includes a brace from Alejandro ALONSO. Gonzalo BERGESSIO scored for St Etienne in their 1-1 draw with Auxerre.

There were also goals from several lesser known names as well.

In the Bundesliga, Diego KLIMOWICZ of Bochum was on target in their 3-2 defeat to Mainz. While in Greece, Lucas FAVALLI was another player on the losing end despite scoring in Atromitos 2-1 loss to Kavala.

Insua (of liverpool) put on a very solid performance against Westham. He definitely deserves a chance with Argentina; maybe he can solve the left back problem.
