Lionel MESSI and Sergio AGUERO both scored on Sunday as their team’s failed to win their respective leagues.
Heading into the last La Liga match day of the weekend, Barcelona knew that even with a win, they could still lose La Liga and that’s what happened. Lionel MESSI scored twice (missed a penalty and a clear cut chance) in Barcelona’s 4-2 win against Eibar. MESSI’s first goal was a penalty kick which was nearly saved (it would have been the second of the night) and his second goal was nothing short of genius. Running through ever Eibar player in his way, MESSI wiggled his way around them all and slotted the ball into the back of the net.
Just like Lionel MESSI’s FC Barcelona, Sergio AGUERO’s Manchester City did not lift their league trophy but did manage to score twice in a 4-0 win against Watford. AGUERO, who did not make the Argentina squad, is the 5th player to score 20+ goals in three consecutive Premier League seasons, SHEARER, HENRY, Van NISTELROOY and KANE being the other four players. AGUERO ended the season on 33 goals, a personal best in a Manchester City shir.
