    Messi masterclass in 7 goal show

    Barca icon Leo Messi scored once and played his part in four more goals as FC Barcelona closed to within a point of La Liga leaders Real Madrid with a commanding performance to beat Athletic Bilbao 5-2.

    The four-time World Player of the Year opened the scoring with a deflected free-kick and then assisted Luis Suarez to double the visitors’ advantage.



    Mikel Rico briefly gave Athletic hope after half-time, but Messi’s goalbound header was then turned into his own net by Oscar de Marcos before Neymar rolled home Barca’s fourth from another Messi pass.

    Aritz Aduriz made it four goals in a crazy six minute spell by pulling another goal back for Athletic, but the hosts ended the game with 10 men after Xabier Etxeita was shown a straight red card for a horrible challenge on Suarez before Pedro Rodriguez added a fifth.

    With this first win in Basque Country in 5 years, Barca are now on 9 consecutive wins in all competitions.

    We could've bought Harry Kane, if we had sold Messi.

    Not so good anymore, eh?

    He is clearly declining. Sell him and use the money to buy some unknown player from Brazilian league.
