Angel CORREA and Lionel MESSI found the back of the net in La Liga on Saturday.
The Atletico Madrid man has been in great form this season, scoring 4 goals in 10 La Liga matches. CORREA gave Diego SIMEONE’s team the lead in the 61st minute with a great goal first touch (off an even better Antoine GRIEZMAN pass) and a run before scoring. Unfortunately for CORREA and his team mates, the match ended in a 1-1 draw as Villarreal eventually drew level.
As mentioned, he’s currently on 4 goals in 10 La Liga matches but the interesting part is that he scored 4 league goals in all of last season when he played 31 matches.
Angel’s not the only one in fine form as the ever present Lionel MESSI scored once more as he leads the Pichichi (La Liga top scorer) race. Going into the match, MESSI was on 11 league goals but made sure to make it 12 following a brilliant goal where he started it and finished the entire play.
