Messi has been described as unstoppable before now, but last night he took the meaning to a whole new level.
El Clasico, arguably the world biggest football match can get really messy. Footballing genius Lionel Messi was left bleeding during El Clasico when Real Madrid defender Marcelo accidentally caught him in the mouth with an elbow.
What followed was heart-breaking for every football fan as blood poured from Messi’s mouth. The footballer had to go off the pitch for treatment and returned in a while with a tissue in his mouth to stem the bleeding.
However, that didn’t stop him from scoring as he picked up the ball from Rakitic and scored a sweet goal after picking up a fine pass from Rakitic.
But Messi’s brilliance doesn’t end there, as it rarely does.
He scored the winning goal in the final moments of stoppage time, taking his team from a 2-2 draw after goals from team mate Ivan Rakitic followed later by Madrid’s James Rodriguez.
Last night was Special as Messi’s recorded his 500th goal for the club, a milestone fans have been congratulating him on reaching.
