Lionel Messi scored two absolute beauties from outside the box as Barcelona dominated Alaves in their 5-1 win.
The FC Barcelona legend scored an outstanding goal that left not only the viewers, but also the commentators in awe. The magician dribbled past two defenders and then curled one in off the post. The goal was just at the whistle of half-time. The Alaves players were stunned by the genius of Lionel Messi.
In the second half, the Argentinian superstar came up with an even better effort. Antoine Griezmann passed the ball to Messi. Messi dropped his shoulders and ran with the ball to beat a defender and then arrowed in the most perfect effort into the top corner with his wand of a left foot.
It was the perfect combination of power and accuracy from Messi, who has scored goals of this caliber time and time again. The magician just keeps reminding his doubters that he is no doubt the best player of all time.
Ray Hudson said:
“When it comes to Messi, he is just jaw-dropping. He attracts defenders like he is a magnet. He releases the ball sumptuously like only Lionel Messi can. He has got the chromosomes of a Bengal tiger. He decorates a footballing net. Lionel Messi is an absolute genius.”
After the game, everyone on social media started praising the genius of Lionel Messi. Some fans said just stop the debate on who the real GOAT is. Even though the debate will still keep going back and forth, we know one thing for sure. Messi is a genius and if not the best ever, then one of the greatest to ever set foot on the football pitch.
