Lionel Messi Attain 500th Goal,as Barca Secure A 2-1 Win Over Sevilla



Lionel Messi makes 500th Barcelona goal,as they came from behind to win 2-1 at Sevilla on Sunday.

Sevilla came on hard as the start of the game ,taking full advantage of that. Barca could barely complete a pass in that first half as the Sevilla players ran rampant, pressing, attacking,and running.

They had two shots on goal inside 50 seconds, but unfortunately from Sevilla’s corner Barcelona broke the leap and march forward with intense speed, a Suarez’s effort from Neymar’s pass was quietly saved by Sergio Rico.

The host remain calm and took on most of the possessions,the first goal of the night came from an exquisite pass from Man-City loanee Samir Nasri bamboozled Sergi Roberto and Vitolo charge through and finds the net with a lovely finish.

Hearts were in mouths as precisely what many had predicted was coming to pass.Suarez losing couple of chances that would have put Barca leveled, Neymar was a total mess, making bad passes, having bad control and just awful.

Sevilla would have made it 2-0 after Sarabia back-heeled the ball towards the edge of the area when he had just Marc-Andre Ter Stegen to beat.

Neymar and Messi combined for a counterattacking goal of the highest beauty to make it 1-1, making Sevilla pay for their mistake,just two minutes into halftime as this time Messi curled Neymar’s pass into the net.

The goal was Messi’s 500th for Barca, Messi would have had more goal to his tally after the break only for Mariano to block the ball,and a save from Rico prevented the Barca captain turning the game around.

Messi threat in Sevilla defense was a real headache for the host ,as he charges through the midfield, then picks out Suarez on the right of the area, inside Rico’s near post unmarked Luis Suarez, who stroked a calm finish low past Rico.

In total, 320 of Messi’s Barcelona goals have come in La Liga and his tally for the season now stands at 16 in all competitions.
