    every player always learn how to make space out head of them to win a match. Like messi did it before, he normally always use this trick because both messi be attacker and playmaker

    Call me stupid, but am I the only one who noticed that the result in the end was not good for Barca?
    I admit that in some situations the way he created space for himself was good and clever, but…
    He never rec'd the ball near to the goal. Everytime away, with atleast 2-3 defenders in front of him, and almost always forced to pass back or sideways.
    I think if he plays like this the whole game long (not scoring goals but just wandering around), the defenders will be pretty happy, as we can see by the final result…
