Messi Magic Brings the Title Home
Barcelona had a truly tough encounter against Atlético Madrid, but a hint of magic from Lionel Messi was good enough to secure La Liga's championship.
It just took him one stroke to post the 0-1 result Barça needed to wear the crown.
All season long, their engine room has been the trio upfront: Messi, Suárez, and Neymar.
Let Real Madrid do the math.
Atlético had their season in the sun last year, but they wound up being spectators in the current campaign. Barcelona were just too good.
Los Colchoneros mounted a spirited defense but weren't Messi-proof.
It's like he has an invisible string attached to the ball.
Maybe he learned it from Harpo Marx:
Messi may have come up empty in the final stage of the World Cup, but in Barcelona, he always delivers.
Atlético’s manager knows it, too.
