It was the Leo Messi show at the Estadio Olimpico de Sevilla last night, as FC Barcelona emerged victorious over Athletic Club in the final of the 2021 edition of the Copa del Rey.
Goals from Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong preceded the Messi show, as the Argentine maestro went on to score twice in order to give the Catalan club their first trophy of the 2020/21 season.
It was not just during the match that Messi’s influence on this Barcelona side was clearly visible but afterwards as well.
At one point during the post-match celebrations, Barcelona players queued up to get a picture with Lionel Messi next to the trophy.
It looked like Messi was involved in a meet and greet with fans but these are actual Barcelona players, who probably see him day in, day out.
