Lionel Messi Once Again Stars in Barcelona Victory

Lionel Messi was able to inspire Barcelona to yet another victory, as the club were able to get a comfortable 3-0 win over Las Palmas at the Camp Nou.

The Argentine had a couple of mediocre campaigns in recent years, but he now seems to be back to his terrific best at the start of the 2017-18 season. Messi has now scored 11 goals in his seven league appearances this season, and this is the best ever start that he has made to the domestic campaign. In fact, this is even better than his tally of 10 goals in the first seven matches of the 2011-12 campaign. If Messi continues on this way, he could very well end up challenging the 100 goal mark over the calendar year.
