With two goals scored by Messi, Barcelona beat Almeria 3-1
Argentina, April 9, 2011
Guardiola’s team was losing 1-0 against Almeria, but a penalty from Messi, Thiago’s header after a good center of the Argentine and an exquisite definition of the Argentine star, condemned the 3-1. Barcelona is eight points above Real Madrid, reaching 15 consecutive victories at home. Mascherano and Milito played from the start.
Barcelona won with an excellent performance of Lio and thus maintains the gap with its rival. The two goals put Messi as top scorer with 29, while Cristiano Ronaldo has 28. He also reached 18 assists in the contest.
Messi scored again after five games of drought and arrives in the best way to the “derby” next week, to be played at the Bernabeu for the local competition.
