The one who have seen the party and no only the statistics, will not dare to judge in any moment to Messi. Rather to elogiarle. 'The Flea' went back to remain without marking by third consecutive day in LaLiga Santander, and by fourth party followed if we explain also the visit of the past Thursday to Saint Mamés against the Athletic of Bilbao, in relation to the quarter-finals of Glass of Rey.

They are a lot of minutes without that Messi mark, but the Argentinian compensates it with his another big facet: the one of assistant. This Sunday, in Benito Villamarín, the '10' delivered three assistances of goal to Of Jong, Busquets and Lenglet, with which the FC Barcelona fraguó the traced back (2-3) in front of the group bético. Leo Messi went back to confirm that it is a player of team, and that the only that matters him is to do all the possible so that the Barça win.

Do a 'hat-trick' of assistances is not at all usual, but already is the chamber that achieves Leo Messi along his sportive career. Already it had done it in front of the Raise in the Glass of the King in 2014, in front of the Getafe in LaLiga in 2016 and, with the Argentinian selection, in front of Paraguay in the Glass America in 2015. Besides, during the last five years, only have achieved it three players of LaLiga: Sarabia with the Seville, Luis Suárez in three occasions and the two mentioned of Leo Messi.

With his three assistances of this Sunday, Messi has turned into the second player of the five big leagues that reaches the two figures in goals (14) and assistances (11) in the domestic competition, beside Jadon Sancho (12 and 13). While it follow delivering game, creating played of goal and assisting to his mates, little matters that the rosarino do not see door.

Messi deserved to see goal in front of the Betis

To be fair, however, it is necessary to say that Messi deserved to go with some that another goal in the pocket in front of the Betis. The referee him birló a penalti very clear in the final minutes, and the VAR neither helped. With this penalti in favour, the '10' would have had the opportunity to recover confidence of face to door, since this Sunday his two more dangerous shots were refused by the goalkeeper of the Betis, Joel Oaks.

Anybody doubts that, with the step of the parties, Messi will recover the gunpowder and will follow struggling by the 'Pichichi' and the Boot of Gold 2020. It will not have at all easy to be the maximum goleador of the big Leagues, but at least will try to go back to be it of the Spaniard a year more. They happen the years and Messi follows without having ceiling, surprising us split to party with his enchantments of pure magic futbolística. The Barça follows having to the genius of the lamp.
