The 18-year-old ILAIX MORIBA SHOCKED MESSI and the world with his performance | Sevilla Barcelona
In La Liga, Barcelona dealt with Sevilla in an away match - 2: 0. Ousmane Dembele opened the scoreline in the 29th minute of the meeting, and then the matter turned into continuous tackles and fights, which were thwarted by yellow cards for the players of both teams.
Even Lionel Messi nearly crossed the line! At the end of the first half, the Barça captain received a yellow for a foul on Fernando, and a couple of minutes later he risked seeing a red card in front of him for an outright foul on Jules Kounde.
Sevilla’s head coach, Julen Lopetegui, demanded from Alejandro Hernandez, the referee, to immediately send off the Argentine from the pitch, but he did a completely different thing: a yellow card to the Red-Whites coach and no punishment for Messi.
Interestingly enough, that on the 85th minute it was Lionel, who killed the intrigue in the match, and whilst admiring Leo's game, Sevilla midfielder Joan Jordan tried his best to get his shirt. It didn't work out though!
In general, Messi's second goal helped the Catalans getting their 9th victory in the last 10 Matchdays of the Spanish Championship. By the way, we can't stop following the progress of the 18-year-old Barcelona talent Ilaix Moriba! The boy once again got a chance from Ronald Koeman and thanked the coach after the match. Well, of course, there was praise from Messi!
After a triumph against Sevilla, Barcelona have moved up to second in the La Liga table, but despite having Real Madrid behind, the club still has a game in hand.
