Messi's late strike fires Barcelona top

Messi's late strike fires Barcelona top”

Ivan Rakitic's stunning strike and a red card for Madrid captain Sergio Ramos for chopping down Messi 13 minutes from time put Barca on course for victory before James Rodriguez came off the bench to level four minutes from time.

Ramos was dismissed with 13 minutes remaining in the pivotal La Liga clash for a wild lunge at Lionel Messi but Roberts clearly felt the performance still deserved some recognition as she comically told the Spaniard: 'You played awesome tonight'.

Messi put in a big performance on Sunday, scoring two goals, including an injury-time victor, in the Blaugrana's 3-2 victory at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The only two official Barca goal-scoring records he is yet to break are Joan Gamper's record for most goals scored in one game (9) and Pedro's fastest hat trick (9 minutes). "In modern football when everyone is tactically and physically better he still makes the difference". "After years and years, he continues to be decisive".

4 Messi is named Barcelona's Top Goalscorer in Multiple Categories. It's time to enjoy the best player in the world and of all time.

Messi's celebration, parading his shirt, sparked a fierce reaction from many Madrid fans on the stands behind the goal, where only a few people wearing Barcelona colors could be seen.

Roberts also got to meet two-goal star Messi as well as fellow Madrid players Marcelo, Luka Modric, Lucas Vazquez and manager Zinedine Zidane.

"Leo's 500th goal had to be special, just like he is", Barcelona defender Gerard Pique said.
