Lionel Messi scores his 500th goal to win El Clasico
I LOVE THIS TEAM!
Lionel Messi scored his 46th and 47th goals of the season as FC Barcelona beat Real Madrid 3-2 at the Bernabéu. But it was no easy feat.
Casemiro put Madrid ahead in the 28th minute, but Barcelona was not going to sit down and let their rivals run the show. Messi latches onto a pass from Rakitic and darts pass Carvajal before driving his shot low under Keylor Navas to put Barcelona at 1-1. Casemiro was even lucky to be still on the pitch after bringing down Leo.
The second half was equally fast-paced. Rakitic scored a STUNNER to put Barcelona ahead, but James had other plans when he pulled Madrid equal in the 85th minute after Ramos got sent off for a disgusting tackle on Messi. But Leo was not finished yet. In the 92nd minute, he scored his 500th goal for the club.
Yes, the yellow card was worth it! Leo couldn’t contain his passion and I
And I also want to give kudos to my boy Andre Gomes for his part in Leo’s 500th goal. Gomes is someone I’ve been throwing my support behind since day one because I know what the kid is capable of. He had a good match today and I am pleased. Leo is now the top scorer of El Clasico. He also has the most La Liga goals and assists.
CONGRATS ON YOUR 500TH LEO! HERE’S TO LOTS MORE!
