Maybe the God wanted Messi to break the record in the field of Barcelona’s eternal rival Real Madrid. Otherwise why would this magician find the back of the opponents net only once when he got nearly four to five chances? If the God didn’t want that, then it would be hard to explain that how the opponent goalkeeper did manage the last save when Messi clearly hit one goal scoring shot.
