Google News Icon

Barcelona cruised to a 3-0 win over Alaves at the opening matchday at Camp Nou and Jordi Alba couldn’t be more happier with his captain.

Messi scored a brace in the win after overcoming a disappointing World Cup campaign which saw him and Argentina crash out to France in the Round of 16. But with new acquisitions and signings, Messi will look to forget the World Cup failure and by going all out at the club level and achieving continental success by winning the Champions League for the 5th time and at 31, he’s still going strong according to his colleagues.

And Alba claims no player will ever replicate the 31-year-old’s feats.“Leo makes the difference all the time,He hits perfection every year. We’ll never see another like him” said Alba post match. Messi has truely taken his game to another level after scoring over 600 goals for Barcelona. Messi also scored the 6000th goal for Barcelona in Spanish Top Flight.
Even the Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde couldn’t hesitate in praising his star player. “Messi is a genius, We are lucky to be able to see him every day.” He told in a news conference. “There’s still room for Messi to surprise us. He always surprises you- he never ceases to amaze me, honestly. You have to be ready to expect anything from Messi because he sees what no one else sees.”
Messi put a free-kick under the wall in the 64th minute to give Barca the advantage, before slotting home in injury time after Philippe Coutinho had extended the lead.
Alba was not alone in hailing Messi, who’s opener was Barcelona’s 6,000th La Liga goal. Sergio Busquets said: “It was quite hard, until Messi appeared with his work of art.” While Sergi Roberto quipped: “Leo is still up to his tricks.”
Alaves did little to trouble Barca’s goal even after going behind, but it was far from a convincing display from the hosts, who handed league debuts to Arthur and Arturo Vidal in the second half.

Author’s Take:

This might not be the ideal style in which Barcelona are used to playing but if they are getting the best out of Messi and Suarez, they will get chances to score. This shows the amount of contribution that Messi has made under Valverde. Even in a more pragmatic system, he created the most chances for Barcelona, gathered more assists and scored more goals than anyone else last season.
