"Es difícil jugar con Messi en la selección" — Paulo Dybala

Barcelona, que lidera la Liga española con 9 puntos sobre 9 posibles, con 9 goles a favor y ninguno en contra, busca tomarse revancha de Juventus, subcampeón de Europa, que fue su verdugo en la última edición de la Liga de Campeones.

Ya en el complemento, Messi volvió a dejar en ridículo a la defensa con un desborde por la banda derecha, tiró un centro atrás y tras un rebote, Rakitic la empujó para poner el segundo.

Por su parte, el campeón italiano alcanza la suma de u$s 646,3 millones, en la que sobresalen las cotizaciones de Dybala (u$s 78 millones) e Higuaín (u$s 90 millones).

En la siguiente jornada de Champions League, Barcelona visitará al Sporting de Lisboa. El equipo azulgrana todavía recuerda el traumático 3-0 que recibió la pasada temporada en Turín y es imposible negar ciertas ansias de venganza.

Aunque la posesión del equipo de Enrique Valverde alcanzó al 71%, Ter Stegen atajó más remates que Buffon.

Además, el argentino describió cómo se siente sobre el césped con Lionel Messi y la compatibilidad que tiene con él. El 10 despertó al once catalán y venció a Buffon (por fin). La goleada fue consumada en una tarde de buen juego de los culés. El Barça ha empezado bien la temporada y repito: "es el equipo favorito junto al Real Madrid para ganar la Champions", insistió.

A Suárez le anularon un tanto por presunto fuera de juego, mientras la Juventus reclamó un penal por aparente mano de Gerard Piqué. Y que aún sufrió otro ataque de ira de Messi, a pase de Iniesta, para marcar el 3-0...

Claro que todo ello sin Messi podría sospecharse insuficiente porque a pesar de todo y de todos, la Juventus, que avisó por triplicado en los primeros diez minutos, rozó el descanso manteniendo el 0-0... 2-0, min. 55: Rakitic. La 'Joya' anotó dos goles al primer tiempo, mientras que Giorgio Chiellini puso el 3-0 final. Mostró cartulina amarilla a Bentancurt (min. 26), Semedo (min. 35), Messi (min. 54), Barzagli (min.61), Pjanic (min.75) y a Douglas Costa (min.89).

Tres partidos y medio, 315 minutos y mucha paciencia después, Leo Messi logró una de las pocas cosas que le faltaban para conseguir: marcarle dos goles al guardameta del Juventus Gianluigi Buffon en la enésima exhibición de futbol total del argentino.
