Lionel Messi makes the game look so easy.
Just when his Barcelona looked like it might suffer it's first defeat in 19 La Liga matches, on stepped Lionel Messi to take on the unfamiliar role of super sub. His two goals in Sunday's win against Racing Santander added just the latest chapter to his ever-growing legend.
Having been left on the bench in a bid to get him some rest, Messi came on in the 59th minute and promptly made an impact. He scored the equalizer just six minutes after coming on, then added the game-winner in the 80th minute to help push Barcelona's winning streak to nine matches, and their unbeaten run in La Liga to an insane 20 matches.
Here is a rather artistic and entertaining look at Messi's performance (the goals come at 1:30 and 2:40 for those of you who can take only so much dance music):
Are there really still people holding out in the debate over whether Lionel Messi is currently the best player on the planet? Really?
