Watch: Messi makes La Liga history vs Atletico

Watch: Messi makes La Liga history with late-winner vs Atletico Madrid

December 1, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
It always had to be him.

Another matchday, another Lionel Messi magic. It has almost become a formality with the 32-year-old Barcelona superstar securing yet another La Liga record for his goal in Sunday's clash with Atletico Madrid. 

The five time Ballon d'Or winner having toiled all game long to get on the scoresheet, had to keep it late to snatch the ultimate points which fired Los Blaugrana back to the summit of the league table. Having witnessed goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen man the post to a fault, the Argentine striker took matters into his own hands to score the game's only goal inside the 87th minute.

Armed with the ball from the middle of the pitch, the Barcelona skipper raced his way deep into Atletico's half and teed up with Luis Suarez, only to finish off with a sweet curler into the bottom-left corner. Watch the goal below:

Despite scoring 29 times across all competitions against Atletico Madrid, Lionel Messi had never registered one since Diego Simeone's side moved from the Vincente Calderon to Wanda Metropolitano in 2017. On Sunday, the five time Ballon d'Or winner successfully changed the narrative of the latter being the only ground that had not tasted the sting off his boot.
