Barcelona are 15/8 with Boylesports.com to win the Champions League

The Argentinian saved his side who looked in trouble are going behind against the Minnows early in the game.

Messi was fastest to react to a loose ball in the 50th minute, racing through to net the equaliser. His 73rd minute winner was from a free kick, one which any other player would be proud of, but to Messi this was just yet another goal. The World Footballer Of The Year has now netted thirty seven times in the league this season. Indeed he was unfortunate not to grab a hat-trick last night, only a last minute save prevented him from adding to his impressive tally.

Atletico Madrid kept up the race for second place with a win at Real Valladolid, but with twelve points separating them from Barcelona,the league title already looks beyond them. The champions elect can now focus on the last 16 of the Champions League, and a glamour tie with AC Milan on Wednesday night.
