Barcelona hosted Getafe this morning in the 31st week of La Liga and finally managed to defeat their opponent 5-2. The victory was achieved with the brilliance of the Argentine superstar of this team, Lionel Messi because he managed to score two goals for his team.
Lionel Messi scores in La Liga
Messi doubled his goals in the new season to 25 against Getafe. This means that he is now at the top of the La Liga goalscoring table with 4 more goals than Karim Benzema. Also after these two are Gerard Moreno with 20 goals and Luis Suarez with 19 goals.

With these interpretations, it can be said that now the Argentine superstar of Barcelona is closer than ever to winning his eighth Mr Goli award, or Pichichi. He did this in the seasons 10-2009, 12-2011, 13-2012, 17-2016, 18-2017, 19-2018 and 20-2019. And it looks like the same thing will happen to Lionel Messi this season.
Role of Lionel Messi in the game
Also interesting about last night’s match is that Lionel Messi’s first goal against Getafe was the fastest goal he has scored in La Liga this season. Of course, the fastest goal of the Argentine superstar this season is the match against Dynamo Kyiv in the group stage of the Champions League. In addition, Messi scored against one of his favourite rivals, as he had previously scored 15 goals in 24 games against Getafe.

Barcelona defeated Getafe 5-2 in the Spanish Football League this week. Lionel Messi shone in this game and scored two goals and one assist. He also had a hat-trick chance but gave Griezmann a penalty in the last minute of the game for the French striker to score as well and have the motivation and confidence to continue competing.
Must we wait to see if the future of Barcelona is in Messi’s hands or not?
Lionel Messi seems to be in form at the end of the season and it offers good games. This could help Barcelona succeed in La Liga as well, as the team won the Copa Del Rey. Messi shone in that game and now he performed well against Getafe and scored two goals. It remains to be seen whether Messi can win the La Liga title with Barcelona.
