Lionel Messi's Clasico for the ages, Arsenal surprise us, Inter in trouble

The FC crew debate if Lionel Messi truly is the greatest footballer to ever play.

Sometimes they live up to the hype. Sometimes they surpass it.

From the neutral's perspective, Sunday night's Clasico took it to another level. No matchup in the world has as much talent on the pitch even with Neymar missing and Gareth Bale succumbing to injury after just more than half an hour, and few have had as much drama, individual displays of talent, handbrake turns in the narrative and end-to-end excitement as what we witnessed.

And, as far as Lionel Messi is concerned, we've had the...

Not many players reach 500 goals for their club. Even fewer reach it in the spectacular fashion Lionel Messi did on Sunday.

Five thoughts from a La Liga weekend which saw Barcelona win Sunday's Clasico 3-2 at Real Madrid to reopen the title race.

Any idea of Messi as a spent force was pretty laughable after Sunday's match at the Bernabeu. The 29-year-old, who...

Lionel Messi torments Madrid as Barcelona breathe life in La Liga race

Lionel Messi settled El Clasico in incredible style with a late, late winner against Real Madrid.
Lionel Messi settled El Clasico in incredible style with a late, late winner against Real Madrid.

Lionel Messi delivered a sensational display to hand Barcelona a 3-2 win against Real Madrid on Sunday, in one of the most entertaining Clasicos in years.

Real Madrid were three points ahead of their rivals atop La Liga with one game in hand, but Zinedine Zidane still wheeled out his big guns in an attacking 4-3-3, and was rewarded when Casemiro hit the opener.

But Barca had Messi who, in Neymar's absence, was handed a free role behind the strikers in a 4-3-1-2. The Argentine terrorised Madrid,...
