Both Lionel MESSI and Angel DI MARIA found the back of the net in the Champions League.
Two of Argentina’s three attacking players who started against Ecuador were on the scoresheet in Europe this week, with Lionel MESSI scoring for FC Barcelona and Angel DI MARIA for PSG. MESSI scored and assisted in Barcelona’s 3-1 win against Greek club Olympiacos. MESSI’s goal was his 100th in Europe, making him the first non-European player to reach that milestone. On top of la pulga’s free kick, he also had a lovely assist minutes later following a typical Lionel MESSI dribble inside the area before passing it to Lucas DIGNE who scored.
For Angel DI MARIA, it was a different kind of goal. A strike similar to the one he scored in the 2008 Summer Olympic games in Beijing against Nigeria which won Argentina their second consecutive gold medal. A chip over the goalkeeper for Angel in PSG’s 4-0 win against Belgium club Anderlecht.
