The Catalans have sent a stern warning to their rivals at Madrid by thrashing Osasuna. Barca exhibited a brilliant performance to win the game to bridge the gap between them and the two Madrids. Messi was arguably the guru behind the success. The Argentinian forward was simply unstoppable all afternoon, using his incredible movement skills to wreak havoc on the Osasuna defense. Flanked by Pedro and Sanchez, the constant overlapping runs created acres of space for Barcelona’s attackers to exploit, and the embarrassing 7-0 scoreline was a logical result. Messi also broke the record to be Barca’s all time scorer with 370 goals (including friendlies) and is also narrowing the gap between him and Cr7 (Cr7- 25 goals and Messi – 18 goals). This win has proved that Barca are on form and so ready for the El Clasico which will be a title decider.
