The Spanish giants are away at Las Palmas, catching up on their game in hand on the teams below them in the table, with the visitors able to extend their lead to seven points with victory in Gran Canaria, where Lionel Messi had given them the lead.
Teams regularly do all they can to stop the Argentine, regularly attempting to man-mark him out of the game or some taking to fouling him as many times as they can get away with.
And why wouldn’t you, as Barcelona’s all-time record goalscorer is the second best dribbler in Europe’s top four leagues.
But Las Palmas’ Dani Castellano decided to try his own method of stopping Messi, as the No.10 took a great touch and looked to be racing into a dangerous position, only for the defender to haul him down in a challenge very similar to those you can witness in the Six Nations at the moment.
There’s no Premier League player in the top five.
