Messi gave a man-of-the-match performance as he inspired Barcelona to victory with a hat-trick⚽. Barcelona🔷 pegged Granada in their own half all afternoon and deservedly took the lead⚽ through a Turan-Messi combo. From that point, Granada was lost and could only play spectators👀 to the brilliant display👏🏻 by Barcelona. Messi (8', 14' 58') and Neymar (83') got on the score sheet to send Barcelona to the top🔝 of the league table.
Real Madrid commenced the post Benitez👔 era with a convincing victory over Deportivo la Coruna. This might not be a true test of squad depth and strength, but still the performance was admirable👏🏻. Gareth Bale (23', 49', 63') and Benzema (15', 90') inspired Real Madrid to a resounding victory👌🏼. Madrid showed their true quality and fans could only hope this performance will be consistent because it sure is a title🏆 contending performance.
