Sevilla stops Lionel Messi 700th career goal

Sevilla stops Lionel Messi  700th career goal

La Liga leaders, Barcelona couldn’t get a third straight win from the restart of the league after being held in a goalless affair by Sevilla at the Sanchez Pijzuan Stadium on Friday night.

The draw has left the title race wide open with eight games remaining. If Real Madrid wins their next match against Real Sociedad on Sunday, they will level on points with Barcelona. The Galacticos had on Thursday night hammered Valencia 3-0.

But what remains to be seen is how they are going to go past hardworking Real Sociedad team which has shunned out good performance this season before the coronavirus-enforced break.

Sevilla defense was disciplined this time around, causing Barca a lot of frustration throughout the game. Lionel Messi would have scored in the third straight game, but his effort skimmed the bar in the first half.

Sevilla also hit the bar through Lucas Ocampos’ effort before the break. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
