Messi scores two in Barcelona rout


Lionel Messi got a brace in today’s LaLiga tie against Deportivo Alaves.

Real Madrid are currently the Champions of the Spanish league, after the 2 – 0 win during the week against Villarreal, but that didn’t deter Barcelona from getting a confidence boosting win today. Messi was erratic after the week’s game where the team fell to a 2 – 0 loss against Osasuna, but the Captain helped the Catalan Club in a more enterprising encounter.

Barcelona would have to go past Napoli in the second leg of their round of sixteen Champions League tie, as they hope to overturn a 2 – 1 first leg deficit.
