Messi and his teammates came as Real Mallorca visitors, but playing in the stands without an audience, the away factor did not seem to matter. In fact, Barcelona is also rated much stronger than the host.
The new match took place until 65 seconds, when Barca opened the score. From the left wing, defender Jordi Alba crossed the ball very well enough for Arturo Vidal to escape and hit his head bravely to hit goalkeeper Reina.
Having an early goal, Barca is more confident, actively holding the ball and has continuous brakes. Meanwhile, the Iberostar home team was determined to get up, but rarely did they create a situation that threatened the opponent’s goal.
In the 37th minute, Messi officially made a mark when creating a goal for his teammates. Starting from the attacking arrangement in the opponent’s penalty area, Messi tried to touch the ball with his head and gave the striker Martin Braithwaite a powerful right-footed shot at close range, tearing the goalkeeper Reina.
The second half was no different when Barelona held the ball more and played actively. In the 79th minute, Messi poked a smart slot for Jordi Alba to escape the dangerous finish, raising the score to 3-0 for Barca. The score 4-0 was set by Messi in the 90 + 3 minute. It was the shot that sent the ball to the foot of defender Mallorca before flying into the net. With this jubilant victory, Barca got 61 points after 28 games and built the first place firmly.
Athletic Bilbao 1-1 Atletico Madrid
Both teams started off quite cautiously, so it was not until the 12th minute that the first dangerous situation. It was Carrasco‘s fall on Atletico Madrid’s side, facing goalkeeper Simon, but unfortunately missed the ball narrowly. At the 25th minute, the host Bilbao responded with Inaki Williams striker, but goalkeeper Jan Oblak chose the right position to catch the ball.
The match gradually became dramatic as the two teams attacked more and created many stunts on the opponent’s goal. In the 32nd minute, Oblak’s “temple guard” continued to save Atletico when the reverse header of Yeray Alvarez was dissolved.
Playing a sharper attack, the host Bilbao deserves the opening goal in the 37th minute. Iker Muniain comes up from the second line and finishes an extremely delicate touch to defeat Oblak, giving the host a 1-0 lead .
