A Lionel MESSI masterclass was on show for the world to see on Sunday while Jonathan CALLERI and Franco VAZQUEZ also netted in La Liga with Sergio AGUERO and Ever BANEGA finding the back of the net.
Like fine wine, Lionel MESSI appears to be getting better with age. Two goals and one assist for the little magician in Barcelona’s 5-0 win against Real Betis. However, it wasn’t the goals which got Real Betis fans to clap for MESSI but it was the dribbles. The second half was a pulga highlight reel. The one’s you would find on Youtube. Dribbles around the Real Betis players which would were worth the price of admission for the match alone. The win for the Catalan club extends their lead at the top of the table ahead of Diego SIMEONE’s Atletico Madrid by 11 points.
There were two more Argentinians who scored in Spain on the weekend. Beginning with Jonathan CALLERI, the former Boca Juniors and West Ham man scored for Las Palmas in a 2-1 win against Valencia. CALLERI’s goal came from the spot which ended up being the winning goal.
Still in La Liga, Franco VAZQUEZ scored for Sevilla (who had an Argentinian score for them on Tuesday) in their 3-0 demolition of Espanyol.
Shifting over to Tuesday, Ever BANEGA had a stellar performance in the Copa del Rey against Atletico Madrid. The Sevilla man scored a penalty for the home team in their 3-1 win (5-2 aggregate) against Atletico.
Moving over to England and the League Cup, Sergio AGUERO scored the goal that took Manchester City to Wembley as City picked up a 3-2 win (5-3 aggregate) against Bristol City. This is AGUERO’s fourth goal of the week after having scored three goals on the weekend.

Sergio AGUERO’s goal
Aguero is so deadly. Look at the De Bruyne pass too. So hard to play against them at times. pic.twitter.com/mGFnsT62ln
