Match Report: Leganes 1-5 Barcelona, As Lionel Messi Impressive Yet Again

Barcelona

It was a routine business as usual for the La Liga champions, who bounced back from a shock defeat to newly promoted side Alaves last time out in La Liga in convincing manner with the deadly trio of MSN all finding the net for the Blaugrana’s. The 29 year old Argentina superstar Lionel Messi turned in on a performance of the highest order by Scoring two and inspiring Barcelona to an impressive 5-1 La Liga win over Leganes on Saturday.

The Spanish giants were very keen to avoid any upsets similar to their 2-1 home loss to Alaves last week and Luis Enrique shifted to an unusual formation of 3-4-3 rather than going with Barça’s traditional formation of 4-3-3.

His decision to go with this new formation paid off as the Catalans dominated from the start to the finish – Messi opened the scoring in the 15th minute before striker Luis Suarez doubled their lead 15 minutes later.

Neymar also struck right before the end of the first half, with Leo Messi netting his second of the afternoon from the spot in the second half. Rafinha also scored beautifully from outside the box right after the hour mark, making it 5-0 forthe Catalan giants.

However, there was a brilliant consolation goal for Leganes courtesy to a amazing finish from Gabriel in the 80th-minute free-kick but the headlines were made by MSN. The game was totally one sided and showcased the brilliance of Barca’s attack, which scored five once again, as they have done before on a number of occasions.
