MAJESTIC MESSI: Messi is playing at his very best: Torturing defenses with his on-ball speed, scoring with both legs, and continually improving his passing to get all his team involved in Barcelona’s overpowering attack.
He has 33 goals in 31 games this season. He scored one goal and took part in four more on Sunday in a 5-2 thrashing of Bilbao to ensure Barcelona pulled to within one point of Real Madrid in the Spanish league.
Barcelona’s win streak has silenced talk of a team crisis, and rumors that coach Luis Enrique’s job was in danger. via USA Today.
