Why Messi will Continue to Score and Outshine Ronaldo This Season – Video
Messi’s four goals haul against Eibar on Tuesday means the Argentine Wizard has already bagged 9 League goals this season. With Neymar’s departure over the summer, many would have thought it would be hard for Barcelona because apparently, the Brazillian is not easily replaceable. Although, buying Dembele wasn’t a bad decision, but truly, he can only do his best.
Apart from Dembele, Barcelona went as far as China to secure the signing of former Tottenham midfielder, Paulinho, and this is the turning point of their summer transfer activities. Valverde knew exactly what he was doing when he brought in Paulinho. As a holding midfielder and with Busquet and Rakitic alongside, this will give Messi more room to move forward, especially now that Suarez is out injured.
Messi is known to be a superb finisher, coupled with a number of great skills endowed in the Argentine. For the past few season, Messi has become more of a supplier rather than goal scorer, creating a number of chances for Suarez and Neymar. Although, many may argue he benefits from these two ass well, but we could reckon Messi is such a selfless player.
Now, Messi now plays a more central role up-front, giving him more room to move forward and score more goals. Ronaldo will be back against Real Betis tonight. The Portuguese hasn’t featured for Real Madrid in the league following a 5 match ban. But he now has a hurdle to climb if he is to catch up with Messi
