Lionel Messi Could Smash One Of His Own Ridiculous Records, This Season

Lionel Messi Could Smash One Of His Own Ridiculous Records, This Season

The Bernabeu saw its team fail to score for the first time in 73 matches as Zinedine Zidane's side fell victim to a 93rd minute victor from Antonio Sanabria, and while players of bitter rivals Barcelona won't be getting carried away with Real's downfall, others around the club will be forgiven for doing so - including Lionel Messi's brother Rodrigo.

And he added his 12th goal in just eight games this season three minutes from time.

The Argentine striker forced a pair of good stops from Eibar goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic in the 26th and 37th minutes before Paulinho got the second goal for the hosts in the 38th, connecting with a thunderous header off Denis Suarez's corner kick.

One thing Messi will be pleased with so far this season is his on the field performances, with the loss of Neymar and the arrival of Paulinho looking like a real boost for the star, who is showing La Liga just what he is capable of - not that they will have forgotten.

"Bartomeu's said that the contract is signed and it's just lacking the protocol".

Among the highlights will be the flagging off of the Mahamana Express train to connect Varanasi with Gujarat's Surat and Vadodara. Friday will mark another landmark day when the Prime Minister will be in Varanasi on a two-day visit.

Benedito claims Messi's father is the only one to sign the deal and until the player himself commits, the agreement "has no validity".

"That contract, without Leo's signature, is not valid", Benedito was quoted as saying by SPORT. "Although it has been signed by his father, he [Bartomeu] needs the signature of the player".

"It's possible that the presence of Bartomeu is the main obstacle for this not being complete", he added.

Messi said at the start of the summer: "Whenever a new season starts, it [has] to be better than the last".

"I hope the president explains the truth, because this is not the first time he lies". Arguably he is having the best start of any season he has ever played with FC Barcelona.
