If Messi offered against the Athletic his best party of the season does some days, being vital for the victory culé in Saint Mamés, this Saturday improved even more the feeling that 'The Flea' has gone back. Or, at least, already it seems much more to his best versions. And it is that, in the first-half in front of the Granada, no only marked the second goal of the meeting to pass of Griezmann, planting the balloon almost to the square while it fell .
And it is that, happened the half hour of game, Eteki committed an innocent fault on Pedri to the edge of the area, and the '10' took advantage of it to condemn the Granada with the 0-3 before finishing the first time. This time, the shot of fault of Messi himself was precise. The Argentinian planted a shot raso, powerful and placed to the stick that anybody expected, and Rui Silva did not arrive to time to avoid the golazo. Another target more for the account of Messi, and first goal of free direct this campaign.
To the number 69, therefore, went the defeated. Messi had not achieved to mark of free direct from the month of June of the past year, and accumulated already a total of 68 launchings without luck. His target of fault, that sorteó to perfection to the barrier and surprised to all the world, served him besides to add his doublet number 127 in LaLiga Santander, more than anybody in the history of the big Leagues.
It treats in addition to the decimoprimer goal that transforms in LaLiga 2020-21 and of the number 14 in all the competitions, consecrating even more like the maximum artilleryman of the Barcelona team in what it goes of course. Without going more far, fits to highlight that it bends the figure of the second classified in this appearance, a Griezmann that with his two targets of this Saturday accumulates 7 in all the campaign (5 in League and 2 in Champions).
The Barça, increasingly regulate
This season Messi had launched a total of 26 direct faults, and had not been able to drill the contrary goal. Now that has opened the veda again and that goes back to lucir his best level, can say that 'The Flea' has returned and that has done it to remain . It is convinced of the possibilities of the team to struggle by titles, and will not doubt in exhausting them.
With Messi to 100% and having found the best system and eleven possible (at least for now) for the Barça, Ronald Koeman can smile and breathe something calmer that in previous weeks. The Barça already accumulates three consecutive victories in LaLiga, with Lionel that besides it recovers the place of Pichichi in solitary. A place that already belongs him by decree.
