Leo Messi is an only footballer, irrepetible, special, genuine, magic. They use the adjective that consider more precise to describe him. But for the rivals only there is a concept that links him: danger. The defences know that when he has the balloon there is danger. Where? By where? How? It is unpredictable and impredecible. But you know that it goes it to you to do.

Messi is able to follow amazing ten years afterwards. It defines as always and the dribblings are the ones of almost always, but anybody is able to detain to the Argentinian. Pícaro Like few footballers before, his presence in the field is a constant threat for the rival. What say it to him to the Athletic, the next Barcelona rival, that has fit 27 goals already of the Argentinian star.

To Messi no gives him at all badly the group rojiblanco. In fact, in all his career, only has marked him more goals to the Seville (29). His 27 goals to the Athletic are a very high figure and show how enchufa when it plays against the colchoneros. It has done them to him of all the colours: of fault, of head, of penalti... Simeone Is conscious that no can him stop: "Only you can pray so that it do not have the day", said does a year.

Without going more far, Messi has marked in his two last visits to the field of the Athletic -in League and in Glass-. In February of this 2017, in League, marked the decisive goal in the minute 86 that gave him the three points to the team of Luis Enrique. Now it will look for to lengthen the good series but in Wanda, the new house of the rojiblancos.

Increase his leadership in the Pichichi

Messi carries already 11 goals in the League. Anybody is able of toserle. And it wants to increase his income next Saturday. It knows that the rival no will put it to him easy, since Godín, Filipe Luis and company always are intense in his defence, but with Leo all can occur. The Barcelona wants to add the three points to equalise the record of the Tata Martino and, in passing, increase the advantage with the Athletic of Madrid in the table -at present to six points of the ones of Valverde-.
