Tribute and challenge
After their great win at the Wanda, Barca have another game where they need to win to stay top of the league.
The opponents this Saturday are Mallorca who will go to Camp Nou to try and spoil the party of the best player on the planet: Leo Messi.
The Argentine will enjoy a great night since he will show the Ballon d`Or which he won in Paris to the fans.
His sixth trophy will start off proceedings and Messi will not go easy on the islanders.
The star from Rosario knows it is vital to end the year in the best way and that starts with a win on nSaturday.
The first step is to beat Mallorca on Saturday, a team Leo is good against (12 goals in 12 matches) and against who he will look for another personal challenge.
After starting LaLiga injured, Messi has been reducing the gap on the Pichichi leaders.
So much so that the '10' is now just one goal off Benzema who leads the way with 10.
If Leo delivers another exhibition, he will have a great chance of going past the Frenchman this Saturday.
Messi's hunger is endless and the encounter against the Balearics will be another opportunity to make clear that Messi will still be around for a while yet.
