Win against Sevilla marks Messi’s 600 match at Barça

November 6, 2017

A rainy Saturday night marked Leo Messi’s 600th appearance for FC Barcelona when the club played host to Sevilla at Camp Nou.

The Catalans had a number of opportunities in the opening minutes of the match, but it wasn’t until the 23rd minute that Paco Alcacer scored the opener. Pizarro equalised just before the top of the hour, but the crowd didn’t have to wait long before Alcacer put Barcelona ahead again to clinch the three points.

1-0 Alcácer (min 23)
1-1 Pizarro (min 59)
2-1 Alcácer (min 65)

The result leaves Barcelona four points clear of Valencia and eight ahead of both Madrids. The start of the season seems to be going Barcelona’s way, helped by Real Madrid’s lacklustre showing so far.
