Real Zaragoza vs. FC Barcelona —my bad.
Real Zaragoza vs. Lionel Messi.
1 Vs. All
It's ridiculous. Lionel Messi just bagged another hat trick. If this was a video game I'd accuse the player of cheating. He scored 11 goals in the last five games alone (34 in all competitions). At this rate, and there's no indication that it'll stop anytime soon, he'll score 40+ goals in this season. Meanwhile Ibrahimovic is misfiring like Bendter did a couple of weeks ago against Burnley. Hopefully he regains his confidence soon.
Things get Messi
Slowly but surely FC Barcelona are turning into Inter Milan when Ibrahimovic was there. The Blaugrana need to rename their team into "Messi Plus 10 Others," because this is insane. At the start of the season Ibra was without a doubt one of the best players—if not the best player—in La Liga, but now Messi makes him look redundant week in and week out. Maybe that's part of the reason his confidence is shattered. In Barcelona Ibra belongs in the category of "plus 10." The undisputed ruler of the Camp Nou is the little genius that is Lionel Messi.
