Leo Messi vs Numancia

The Barcelona steam-train continued to chug in overdrive last night, bowling over Numancia 4-1 at the Nou Camp with mercurial Lionel Messi leading the Catalans to yet another confident victory.

The pint-sized Argentine started and finished Barca’s goalscoring exploits last night, as well as playing a crucial role in the build up to Thierry Henry’s sole strike on Saturday.
