Lionel MESSI broke another FC Barcelona record while Emiliano SALA scored.
Another day another record for Lionel MESSI. FC Barcelona defeated Sevilla 2-1 to win the Spanish Super Cup and with Andres INIESTA no longer at the club, it meant that Lionel MESSI is club captain. Wearing the armband, MESSI lifted the Spanish Super Cup securing a club record 33rd trophy.
MESSI overtook Andres INIESTA who was on 32 trophies. While he didn’t score, MESSI did play a great through ball to Luis SUAREZ which was ultimately wasted and his free kick which hit the post fell to Gerard PIQUE who scored off the rebound.
Over in France, Emiliano SALA scored for FC Nantes in their 3-1 loss to Monaco. Despite being 3-0 down and in injury time, Nantes continued to press and got their goal through Emiliano SALA.
The former Bordeaux man shot from just outside of the area and got the consolation goal for his team.
