The Argentinian scores the decisive goal once again

Who said Leo Messi didn't celebrate his goals? The Argentinian scored the winner at El Calderon in the 86th minute and celebrated the goal like it was the first of his career. Barcelona recovered the hunger against Atletico Madrid and won three very important points to keep fighting for La Liga title.

It was a match between two needed teams. Luis Enrique used a different formation (3-4-3) to try to regain possession and be more dangerous in attack. With Rafinha as a winger and Busquets, Sergi Roberto, Iniesta and Messi inside, Barcelona didn't work well at the beginning, with difficulties in the build up.

Neymar was great again, but Atletico wasn't just defending. Ter Stegen completed one of his best performances with the club, save after save, to deny Atletico's attackers in the first half.

The game changed when Rafinha scored the opener. Barcelona started to play better, but it was then when Atletico equalized with a good header from Godín.

With both teams attacking to win the match, Umtiti found Suarez and the Uruguayan gave the ball to Messi. He's always there and he won the points again.
