In the second half, Barcelona won a penalty against Atletico Madrid. Lionel Messi stepped up to take the penalty. His fans were waiting for the 700-goal landmark. Whether Barcelona win or not, the records of Messi mean a lot for them. Messi scripted a panenka penalty and bagged the landmark.

After scoring from the penalty spot, he went to the left side of Atleti’s goal and twisted his fingers in front of the camera like Thanos, the notorious villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, conveying the message, “I am inevitable”.

But, Saul Niguez, Thomas Partey, and Yannick Carrasco proved, he is not such as Barca dropped points yet again!

Meanwhile, at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, Juventus were playing their away match against Genoa.

Since losing the Italian Cup final to Napoli in a penalty shootout, Juventus have won all three of their league games since the restart.

Paulo Dybala opened the scoring shortly after the break by evading three defenders before firing in a low shot that Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin, on loan from Juve, could only get a weak hand on.

Seven minutes later, In typical Ronald- fashion, Cristiano picked up the ball just inside the opposition half, drove at the defence, and lashed the ball into the top corner from 25 yards. The mighty CR7 bagged 24 goals from 25 Serie A matches.

Then substitute Douglas Costa made it 3-0 by curling in a shot from beyond the area inside the far post as Genoa’s defence looked on helplessly, with Andrea Pinamonti effort from a tight angle a mere consolation.

But the talk of the town is CR7’s thunderous strike and one must not forget, Cristiano Ronaldo took his place among the 700-Club last October, with a goal for Portugal on a consolation strike from the penalty spot in a 2-1 Euro 2020 qualifying defeat against Ukraine.

Cristiano Ronaldo is still the world’s highest-scoring active player and the one still plying his trade who has scored more than Messi.


Messi with his celebration showed us, he is inevitable like Thanos, but after scoring a jaw-dropping goal last night, CR7 might have replied, “I am Iron Man”!
