Messi cannot stop scoring goals for Barcelona

Posted on by SoccerPunter

Barcelona beat Cordoba 2-0 in the first leg clash of Spanish Cup after Lionel Messi added another two goals to sum up his record of 88 total goals scored in a year.

Messi has now scored three more goals than German legend Gerd Mueller, although earlier on Wednesday Brazilian side Flamengo claimed that Zico should be the record holder with 89 goals in 1979.

The three-time Ballon D’Or winner scored in the 11th minute, after goal assist by David Villa, and then in the 74th when he ran onto an Alexis Sanchez pass in the penalty box.

Barcelona should have no issue to overcome Cordoba at Camp Nou for the Spanish Cup second leg match.

Barcelona’s bitter rivals Real Madrid slipped to a 2-1 defeat away at La Liga strugglers Celta Vigo, though, Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal four minutes from time gives them a precious away goal.

Real’s evening had got off to a bad start when French international striker Karim Benzema had to go off in the 31st minute with what looked like a twisted ankle.

While Messi can do no wrong, his compatriot Marcelo Bielsa can do little right as his Athletic Bilbao side exited the competition at the hands of third division Eibar in their delayed last 32 second-leg match.

Bilbao went out on the away goals rule as last season’s finalists were held 1-1 at home by their modest opposition.

It is a far cry from last season when Bielsa – a former Argentina national coach who guided the Argentinians to the 2004 Olympic title – received great praise for the stylish football his young side played and which saw them also reach the Europa League final.

Eibar’s reward is a last 16 clash with Malaga with the first leg next Wednesday.
