Surely the talk about our National Team will continue to go on an on and until we get to hear any latest development (if there is any) but for now I would like to put our attention back to the European league fixture on Saturday.
Lionel MESSI returns to Barcelona with a goal after enduring in what could be his worst ever week in his football career. The defending champion defeated Getafe 2-0 with both goals coming from the second half.
Originally, he was left on the bench alongside other first team players as coach Pep GUARDIOLA wanted them to be fresh for the Champions League trip against Inter Milan. As soon as MESSI (together with INIESTA) was brought in the 58th minute the tide change in Barca’s favour.
Summer signing Zlatan IBRAHIMOVIC gave Barca the lead in the 66th minute and MESSI sealed the deal for them in the 80th minute. Daniel ALVES, having also come off the bench, sent over a deep cross that IBRAHIMOVIC controlled before unselfishly chipping back across goal for the unmarked MESSI to thump a powerful header into the roof of the net.
I was personally happy to see MESSI with all that smile on his face and really praying hard that with the help of some Devine Intervention we will get to see that smile from him against Peru and Uruguay.
In French Ligue 1, Montpellier defeated Lens 1-0 with a penalty from Alberto COSTA. Meanwhile in Russia, Alejandro DOMINGUEZ scored from the spot for FK Rubin in their 5-0 Saturn Moscow. Lastly in the Swiss Super League, Eulogio ZARATE scored twice for Grasshopper in their 3-4 defeat to FC Zurich.
