Difficult to Stop Messi in This Form

Luis Enrique says that no manager has managed to figure out a way to stop Lionel Messi when the Argentine is on song. Messi demonstrated his brilliance by scoring yet another hat-trick for Barcelona in the Champions League. His latest hat-trick came in the 4-0 win over Manchester City, and the result has almost put the Catalan club on the verge of qualification to the knockout stages even with three games remaining. Messi seemed to be on the downward spiral only 12 months ago after managing to experience one of his poorest campaigns in recent years.

Now, though, he is back to his very best after scoring 12 goals, while also creating six more, in just 10 games this season. Messi may be the joint top scorer – alongside Luis Suarez – in the La Liga with seven goals, but he is significantly ahead in the 2016-17 Champions League season with six goals from just 180 minutes.

Argentina were able to claim a crucial 2-1 win over the reigning Copa America holders. This has provided them with a major psychological edge, but Argentina can progress only with the return of Messi.
