500-up Messi silences Bernabeu

500-up Messi silences Bernabeu”

Lionel Messi silences Santiago Bernabeu with injury-time victor in El Clasico.

Sergio Ramos was then sent off for a unsafe tackle on Lionel Messi before substitute James Rodriguez pulled one back for the hosts to level the scores, despite Madrid being down to 10 men and feeling the pressure.

He scored the winning goal in the final moments of stoppage time, taking his team from a 2-2 draw after goals from team mate Ivan Rakitic followed later by Madrid's James Rodriguez.

Lionel Messi scored his 500th Barcelona goal as his stoppage-time victor against 10-man Real Madrid breathed life into his side's title challenge.

However, Real Madrid still have a crucial game in hand where they can again surge to the top of the points table.

While most tweets focused on those three, the memes and jokes came flooding in about every aspect of the game, from Sergio Ramos's red card to Casemiro's escape from the same fate.

Mr Ross stated he aims to reduce the US's $146billion trade deficit with Europe, which is second only to the US's $347billion one with China.

While we do not have an answer for the question of who is the greatest player of all time, there are certain details linked to Messi's new milestone that are more than noteworthy.

Casemiro gave Real a 28th-minute lead after Sergio Ramos had hooked against the post. "It is an honor and a blessing for the club to have him".

'Permissive with us? The same as for them against PSG?' he said, in reference to Barcelona's dramatic comeback win in the Champions League earlier this season.

"Messi made the difference for his team, but it is not only Messi". Real Madrid's best matches in terms of ball possession and control over proceedings have happened when Toni Kroos and Luka Modric have had one more midfielder, offensive as he might be, to work around and have an extra pass forward available. "Florentino Perez promised me I could do it many years ago, that when I won a major he would let me take the kick-off, and now it has coincided with a Clasico".

"We are top now, but Madrid still have that game in hand". The most marked man in all of football, and for good reason, displaying his uncanny ability to find space.

"We can't be happy", Zidane said. "We all have to stay with him to have a chance of lifting the title".

Baker's ruling added to a list of roadblocks for the state, following a stay of execution of another inmate, 24 hours earlier. McKesson claimed Arkansas improperly used medical credentials to obtain the vecuronium bromide and wants the product returned.

In order to celebrate Messi's landmark of 500 goals for the club, Barcelona released a touching tribute video, recalling the first occasion he scored a senior team goal for the club, twelve years back.

Barca grew slowly into the game and had their first big chance when Luis Suarez dragged wide Jordi Alba's fine cut- back from the edge of the box 11 minutes in.

In the Spanish top flight his main victims are Sevilla, who he has scored against 29 times, Atletico Madrid, who have conceded 27, and both Valencia and Athletic Bilbao, against whom Messi has netted 23.

"I'm sure when he (Ramos) gets home he will see that it's a red".

"I caught him late, but I didn't go in to harm the player".
