Lionel MESSI and Javier MASCHERANO made history last night with FC Barcelona.
No team had ever done it but no team has quiet had the same success as this Barcelona team over the past 10 years. Lionel MESSI, who didn’t have the best of matches, still had the calmness to score a very important penalty kick for his team to give then a 3-0 lead.
What later happened, I’m sure you’ve all heard and seen by now. MASCHERANO played a massive game, was everywhere but extremely lucky not to give up a penalty on fellow Argentina Angel DI MARIA. Barcelona and Argentina’s number 14 confessed after the match that he did touch DI MARIA as Angel was looking to pull off his shot.
DI MARIA, who was not 100%, came on as a substitute for the French club. Meanwhile, Javier PASTORE was left out and did not play.
Here’s the full video of MESSI celebrating with the Barcelona fans.
