It’s impossible to play without Messi. “
Is this the last match of Lionel Messi in the favorite Camp Nou? The question was being asked before the match. It is even higher after Barcelona’s defeat against Celta Vigo. Ronald Kuman does not know the answer to that question. However, the Barcelona coach knows very well that it is impossible to play without Messi.
Messi’s contract with Barcelona will expire on June 30. Unless a new contract is signed, the 2-1 defeat against Celta Vigo on Sunday will be his last at home. The Catalan club went ahead on this day with the excellent head of the captain.
This is Messi’s 30th goal in the current season. He is at the top of the list of goal scorers from far ahead. He scored at least 30 goals for the ninth time in the last 12 editions.
Messi came even closer to winning the Pichichi Trophy – the top scorer award in a single Spanish league. He already has a record of winning seven times.
The Argentine star has a chance to rise to the top alone, surpassing two legends Alfredo Di Stefano and Hugo Sanchez in a record. All three have won the Pichichi Trophy four times in a row. Messi has been winning continuously since the 2016-17 season.
Messi scored a ‘triple century’ with the Celta match. He scored at least one goal in three hundred different matches in La Liga. No one has scored in 200 matches, Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez has scored in 18 matches.
