Lionel Messi looks to have played his final La Liga match of the season, in the 2-1 win at Atletico Madrid on Sunday.
The Argentine superstar was forced off with a hamstring injury at the Vicente Calderon and has been ruled out for 2-3 weeks.
Messi will have to settle on 46 goals in 32 appearances in La Liga this season and Argentina will hope he is back for the World Cup qualifiers in June.
For once Messi did not score in an away game, but he did produce a moment that should be highlighted, continuing his personal crusade to never dive.
He was harshly hacked in the first half but somehow managed to stay on his feet when virtually every other modern footballer would have gone down.
