POST-MATCH REACTION: ARE BARCELONA MISSING MESSI ALREADY?

A lot has already been said about the circumstances under which Lionel Messi parted ways with Barcelona this summer and even though it's already more than a week since it was officially confirmed that the Argentine international superstar would not be playing for Barca for the first time in over a decade, it still continues to draw attention and reactions.

THE MESSI-RONALDO ERA FINALLY COMING TO AN END

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi and Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo are two stars that will forever remain in the history books of football because of their achievements and the contributions they have made to the sport. The two football legends are part of players that made fans fall in love with the sport and while they are growing older, people have expected them to experience a major dip in form but the reverse has been the case. They have both been able to show that anything is possible and records are only there to be smashed and broken.

MESSI COULD WATCH ANOTHER ATTACKER LEAVE BARCA THIS SUMMER

When Barcelona decided to let go of striker Luis Suarez at the end of last season, the Uruguay international forward was not the only one who did not welcome the idea. His then-Barcelona teammate, Lionel Messi was also not a fan of the decision but it ended up happening anyway. Suarez was told that he was no longer able to maintain a top form at the highest level and that he was too old to still lead the club's attack, and after putting him up for sale, Atletico Madrid were the club that agreed to pay his transfer fee.

UPDATE: RACE FOR THE EUROPEAN GOLDEN SHOW

With the season gradually coming to an end, the race for the league titles has continued to hot up. The English Premier League title is looking very likely to go to the Etihad this season. It's looking to be a rat race that will go down the wire toward the end of the season, with Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona all vying for the same cause.

BARCELONA: MESSI EQUALS APPEARANCE RECORD

Lionel Messi has equalled the record for the most appearances in a Barcelona shirt after he featured in the Spanish La Liga clash with Huesca, who are at the bottom of the league table. Barcelona played hosts to Huesca at the Nou Camp and it was Lionel Messi who led his team out on the occasion of his record equalling appearance. Former Barcelona teammate Xavi Hernandez had the record after he made 767 appearances for the Catalan giants during his illustrious football career but Messi has been able to equal that record.
