Lionel Messi scores twice, assists in FC Barcelona win vs. Alaves

Lionel Messi scored twice and assisted in FC Barcelona’s 5-0 win vs. Alaves.

Messi assisted the first goal of the match, a little dink pass into Ansu Fati who would give Barcelona the 1-0 lead. The Barcelona captain would score the second, a lovely little dribble inside the penalty area to double their lead.

The Argentina man would also scored the last goal of the match, a cross sent in found Messi who would score from inside the penalty area. He is now the leading goal scorer and could win the Pichichi award as he is on 25 goals with Madrid’s Karim Benzema on 21 goals with the Frenchman having just one game left to play.

He also leads La Liga with 21 assists.

  1. I watched the slotxo broadcast. I thought the match between Barcelona win vs. Alaves was a very good match and Lionel Messi was able to do it well for this match. I will wait to follow up with the next round of competitions. Hopefully he can score well this round.

  2. Thank you for some other informative site. Where else may I get that type of info written in such a perfect means? I have a mission that I’m simply now working on, and I’ve been at the glance out for such information.

  3. Why is Kevin de bruyne in contention for the Ballon D Or? Man City are not gonna win any titles this year.

    There have been far better midfielders with greater performances. Xavi, Iniesta, Snyder who had great seasons but now players who r lesser talented midfielders like Modric, KDB r being considered for winning of Ballon D Or. It’s a disgrace.

    • KDB already won league cup with city and most probably win EPL player of the season. His individual performance is best by a distance in premier League, if man city win UCL KDB will get ballon dor.

    • Sadly, he is going to play in a 2nd division now.
      People say about our players not having a great time in Germany ,but come to think of it, how our players are faring in Spain?
      Except for Ocampos no one is catching the eye or even playing decent.
      What has happened to Matias Vargas?? He was supposed to be our Argentinian hazard….next big thing for us and blah blah.
      And what a joke funes mori was for Villarreal.
      Magallan finally getting a start and alaves conceded 5 goals.
      Guido and angel correa are okay players. That’s it.
      Jonathan Silva was inconsistent.
      Avila looked promising at least

      • Messi aside, Ocampos had a break out season and has been easily one of the best players in la liga this season.
        A.Correa has been one of Atletico’s most productive players and was their best player before Covid (according to MARCA and not just me). He scored 6 and assisted 5 and the reason for this was because Simeone finally started playing Angel as a forward, which is his natural position. After the break he went back to his usual RCM position and his production was halted but Correa had an excellent season overall and one of Madrid’s papers labelled him “the atletico Messi”, which is obviously a HUGE exaggeration but it goes to show that his efforts were lost on the fans and critics.
        Regarding Vargas, well I remember thinking the kid could be something after his first breakout season with Velez but then in his second season his form dropped like a rock and I knew that he may not be the rising talent that I thought he was. In Argentina you see many players who have amazing half or whole seasons and then they fizzle so one must be very careful when passing judgement on a primera player after just one season.
        Lastly Jonathan Silva, I have to say that he’s FANTASTIC! It’s true that Leganes are a mess but let’s not forget his breakout season last year and I think Silva can give Tagliafico a serious run for his money and I wouldn’t mind seeing him called up even if he will be playing in the 2nd division.

        In conclusion I think our boys have done well in La liga, Messi is still the best, Ocampos is a beast and so is Correa (when played in his proper position) while I think Silva is a quality player in a sinking team and lets not forget about Avila who was having a breakout season before his unfortunate injury.

    • Who is Lewandowski, first win finally the UCL then we can start to talk. Bayern with Mandzukic did it, with Gomez too, with Lewandowski not even a final.

      • I don’t care about Lewandowski, but, we need to give icardi some chances.
        Seeing lautaro’s dismal performances and aguero’s fitness…..we need to bring this icardi guy into the team.

  4. 25 goals, 21 assists by Messi this La Liga season.
    The post doesn’t mention that Messi broke 3 historical records today, but here they are:

    1. With 21 assists, he overtakes Xavi’s record of 20 assists in 1 season.
    2. League record of 25+ La Liga goals for 11th season in a row.
    3. Becomes the first and only La Liga member of the official 1000 club (1000 official goals and assists)
    702 goals & 298 assists in 867 games

    Just a reminder to the people in the previous post stating that Messi is somehow overrated O_o

    • Messi is the enemy of himself if it was other player consider their best season but by Messi standard it is considered career worst season. Messi can’t win balloon dor unless barca win UCL, BTW Lewandowski fully deserve Ballon dor these season but Cristiano or Mbappe or KDB can also win it.

      • Messi is enemy of himself what the f**k,it is people who are harsh on him it is not Messi’s fault,from when it became curse to be best in the world.Lewandoski or KDB should win Balon dr if Messi and Ronaldo do not win UCL

  5. Depaul scores a clinical goal against Napoli. Also had a great cross which ended up being an offside goal. Musso had 1 great save ..but was a tad slow on a low dive & couldnt stop the goal. Interestingly poised game at 1.1
    Unable to pinpoint – but Emilano looks more complete than Musso ( my comments basis last 2-3 games only. Maybe Emilano in his peak form )

  6. So much for the assist record, he dribbles like no other, scores like nobody else and wait for it, he’s a master passer too……in the words of Tony Montana ‘Jo kiddin man’

  7. Today Leo Messi was just phenomenal. Looking forward to seeing some more great performances from Barcelona in UCL . Today is a very sad day for Sevilla fans Banega gonna leave the club. I don’t know it is right or wrong but I think Banega can give service to Argentina up to next world cup. May be I am wrong but I think he deserves a chance.

    • You’re not wrong. Today, Banega is our best deep lying “press resistant” B2B midfielder. Lo Celso – Banega – De Paul is better than Paredes. Banega also gets constant playtime. Dumb NT decision makers underutilized Banega all these years. If he goes to China though, i think we’ll see a rapid decline so its probably too late.

      For those that disagree, who do you think is better than Banega?
