The known analyst Julio Maldonado (Maldini) has chosen which are, for him, the five best performances of Leo Messi with the FC Barcelona. In first position, nevertheless, he has confused two Clásicos
Julio Maldonado, more known like Maldini, carries already a lot of years in the peak of the analysis of the international football, and especially of the teams and players that compose LaLiga Spanish. Big admirer of the game of the FC Barcelona and especially of Leo Messi, has decided to value in the program 'Time of Game' of the Chain COPE which have been the five better parties of 'The Flea' with the Barça.
It is not an at all easy selection, taking into account the brilliant performances that has made the Argentinian star along these last 15 years. Proof of this is the exhibition with 'hat-trick' included of the '10' this Saturday in front of the Mallorca, although this meeting never would go in in a selection like this no only because Messi has played parties still better, but by the little transcendence of the duel in front of the Balearic team.
Desgranando The parties of the 'Top-5' of Messi one by one, Maldini has chosen in fifth position the repóquer of goals that the Argentinian lumbered with to the Bayer Leverkusen (7-1) in 2012, in the turn of eighth of final of the Champions League. The '10' marked goals of all the colours in that meeting and, besides, established an important mark with his five targets in a same crash of League of Champions.
In fourth position find the 3-0 of the Barça to the Bayern of Pep Guardiola in 2015, during the semifinals of the last Champions League that has conquered the FC Barcelona up to now. In that party, Messi no only was the bastion of the Barça with two goals and an assistance, but besides it left an image for the memory with the famous dribbling that served to leave in the floor to Jerome Boateng, just before beating to Neuer with a light vaselina.
For Maldini, the third better party of Messi with the FC Barcelona is the best final of Champions that has played, the one of Wembley in 2011 in front of the Manchester United. In that commitment, 'The Flea' marked a goal of beautiful bill from out of the area and led to a big Barça (3-1) to the 'orejona'.
The better second party of Messi with the Barcelona, following the logic of Maldini, is the one of the poker of goals that annotated in front of the Arsenal in the turn of eighth of Champions League, in 2010, in a party that remained 4-1 and served to the Barça to happen of round. Messi annotated four golazos, although what more remembers of that meeting was the touch subtle with which elevated the balloon above Almunia, before finishing of volley at the end of the meshes.
And to the hour to choose the best party, Maldini confuses
Finally, Maldini chooses the famous Classical of the 3-3 that played in the Camp Nou during the season 2006-07, with Frank Rijkaard in the bench and a Messi that it already began to project in spite of playing up with Eto'or and Ronaldinho.
At least we understand that Maldini refers to said split -in which Messi marked the three goals of the Barça-, since the prestigious sportive analyst has a lapsus when confusing this party with the one of the 2-6 in Santiago Bernabéu, with Guardiola in the bench two years later. In any case, the confusion of Julio Maldini is intelligible and forgive him for that: choose between so many exhibitions of Messi is simply impossible.
