Messi makes more LaLiga history with goals record

Messi makes more LaLiga history with goals record

Messi was leading Espanyol a merry dance and he set up Barca's second in the 26th minute, twisting and turning defenders on the edge of the box before slicing the back four open with a fine pass for Dembele, who cut inside and fired across Lopez into the top-right corner.

Messi tormented Espanyol's defence and created several openings for his team mates, with Suarez hitting the post from one delightful lobbed pass. This time, Lopez didn't even get close to making a save.

Luis Suarez scored from the tightest of angles just before half-time, with the Barcelona captain then curling in another superb dead-ball strike after 65 minutes to cap a fine individual and team performance.

Duarte thought he had netted a consolation for his side as he prodded home Sergio Garcia's free-kick at the far post, only for the goal to be disallowed after a lengthy VAR review.

Pele said, "How can you make a comparison between a guy who heads the ball well, shoots with the left, shoots with the right and another who only shoots with one leg, only has one skill and doesn't head the ball well?"

In Kedarnath , Tarun plays a role of a pithu leader (people who carry pilgrims on their back), who fulfils the demands of pithus. Those seeking a ban on the film accused it of hurting Hindu sentiments and alleged that it was promoting love jihad .


"Luka Modric won (the Ballon d'Or) and we have to congratulate him but it's a bit unusual because Messi gives stunning performances day after day, which no other player does".

Gerard Pique didn't miss the chance to take a pop at Espanyol after Barca's 4-0 win in Cornella. But it was Barca causing all the issues once more. They have not beaten Barcelona in 19 attempts in La Liga now, while a fourth straight league loss means their strong start has faded badly of late. We were also great against Real Madrid.

That is four more than any club in Europe's top-five leagues have managed collectively over the same period, while Messi also broke another LaLiga record against Espanyol.

Messi was unplayable as Barca thrashed Espanyol 4-0 in Saturday's Catalan derby at RCDE Stadium, moving the leaders three points clear at the top of LaLiga.
