Messi breaks two records as Barca smashes Alaves 5-0

After losing the domestic title to Madrid on Thursday, the Catalonian giants are on a quest to regain their pride. With captain Messi on board, it is certain the ship can never sink no matter the storm.

Barcelona passed through hell this season starting with the sacking of Valverde, rift between Messi and Abidal to the epic loss of their initial premier position in the league to a blazing Madrid team. In spite of all these, the team still remain a formidable force to be reckoned with.

Barcelona summoned their courage as they destroyed Deportivo Alaves away with 5 goals to nil. The home team were shocked as they never expected Barcelona to attack with such ferocity. Messi spearheaded the attack with two goals and one assists making him upgrade his stats this league season to 25 goals and 21 assist.

Messi becomes the only player in Laliga history to win the Pichichi trophy seven times. He is now one ahead of Telmo Zarra who he initially tied with on six. As if that was not enough Messi is now the player with the most assists in a la liga season pushing past Xavi who sat on 20 assists

Despite having a bad season, Messi has managed to break no less than 5 records this season. This, to me, is outrageous and incredible. This show just how insanely good the player is; smashing 5 records in his worst season is confounding. No doubt, this is the greatest player to ever grace the pitch and his name will remain indelible on our hearts and in the history of the beautiful game. Thanks you Lord for making me a witness to the greatness of Leo Messi. I am lucky to be born in this era.
