When Maffeo tried yesterday brake to Messi, in order of Machín, to base to be his shadow, the first that went through us the head was that labeling of Balenziaga with the Athletic does some years. Yes, in the bench was Ernesto Valverde. Last night also, but defending the interests of the Argentinian.

Claro, Valverde knew what say him to surpass this labeling. Or perhaps it did not do him fault, because Messi went back to show that it knows to read the football of an only and special way. It knew to leave spaces in the bands, drew desmarques incredible from backwards for pillar to the defence desprevenida -Mascherano assisted well, but did not arrive the goal-. 

Far to put nervous awaited impatient his moment, although perhaps it was one of the most bored nights for the Argentinian, that went in in the game of distinct form. Yet still it could mark him to the Girona, the only team of the current First Division to the that has not beaten never -beside Cádiz, Xerez and Murcia-. 

Praises of Rakitic and Robert

It is impossible to not to surrender to the evidence. Messi is a player imparable. Like this they did it see also Rakitic and Robert Fernández. "You can not cancel to a player like Leo. Although no between at stake it carries you to other parts of the field where goes us to benefit the numerical superiority. It is so intelligent that knows where carry to his pair. To a right side carried it to the left zone and sometimes this benefited us", affirmed Robert.

If Messi has had a bad time? Rather I think that it has been Maffeo the one who has happened it worse. Messi is accustomed to that they put him people on, seems that it is fashionable, but is uncomfortable for the rival, sure", aimed Rakitic with ironic tone.
