Is Lionel Messi the Greatest of All Time?

He may or may not be the Greatest of All Time but Lionel Messi is a shoo-in for ‘Greatest of All La Liga’, his contention made easy by a supporting cast that includes ‘Greatest of All Uruguay’ Luis Suarez and ‘Greatest of All Chile’ Arturo Vidal. The pulling out of nemesis Cristiano Ronaldo who left Spain to conquer Serie A helps too. The best stories, comments, and highlights from 2019/2020 La Liga Matchday 8 team of the week.
