Another game, another incredible chapter of Lionel Messi importance to Barcelona has been written. The Superstar was simply unstoppable against
Elche but, credit must be given to Braithwaite and De Jong who both provided assists.
De Jong’s run from midfield was astonishing. It was one of runs everyone at Camp Nou have grown accustomed to seeing Messi do time after time but, De Jong pulled it off and provided an assist for Messi to make it 2-0 before Braithwate provided another for Jordi Alaba to make it 3-0.
Barcelona’s 3-0 win moves them to 3rd place, 5 points adrift from Atletico Madrid who are sadly aren’t in the best form.
Whoever said Barcelona were dead and buried must rethink. This Barcelona team can win the La Liga title with Lionel Messi pulling the strings in midfield and finishing off the chances in aplomb.
