What more can we say about Leo Messi?!
Well, we are going to try since the Argentine superstar has once again guided Barcelona to a final victory…
Leo Messi was outstanding for Barcelona against Alaves on Saturday evening as the Catalans won the Copa del Rey final 3-1.
This was Messi’s 700th official game for both club and country and the Barcelona star shows no signs of slowing up on an incredible career.
Barcelona 3 – Alaves 1
After 30 minutes, Leo Messi got the ball rolling for Barcelona with a classic opening goal, curled home after a 1-2.
Theo Hernandez pulled a goal back for Alaves but Barcelona took complete control before the break.
Neymar made it 2-1 before Messi pulled out another incredible assist for 3-1 deep into first half injury time.
The second half was devoid of a huge amount of chances and there was a surprise to see Messi booked.
Nevertheless, the season ends with Messi and Barcelona winning a trophy and its a quality send off for Luis Enrique.

Messi consistently delivers best in the history of the game performances every season, any debate on that has quickly become ridiculous.

Messi's performance is why the BdO is nonsense. As long as he is playing the game, he will be the best. All the rest is politics.

MESSI. this guy is at least 2-3 levels above the 2nd best. Unfortunately football is played by men and watched by kids.

Messi is extraterrestrial. The greatest of all time. Changed the face of the Copa Del Rey final.

Messi is like adding a cheat code when you play against your little brother on easy mode with his controller disconnected.

Messi is now top scorer in:
La Liga (37)
Copa del Rey (5)
Champions League (11)
Tell me 'bout how he doesn't deserve the Ballon D'Or.

Imagine thinking this man isn't a 100 billion light years ahead of anyone else in the world. Messi is fucking absurd.
