Lionel Messi Headbutts Mapou Yanga Mbiwa In Barcelona Roma Friendly Match : It is rare to see Lionel Messi to be aggressive against any player on the field but in fact the day has come when he was in full mood to slay the opponent Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa. It was a friendly match between Barcelona and Roma at Nou Camp on Wednesday night. Barcelona were already leading the board with 1-0 as Neymar scored the first goal in the 27th minute. Roma had a tough frustrating evening as they were lagging behind the Barcelona’s attack so Mapou lost his temper towards star player Lionel Messi and leaned his head to make the clear contact showing his rage.

It was a shocking moment when Messi in reply did the aggressive headbutt, grabbed Mapou’s throat with his left hand and pushed him to justify his reaction. Moreover, it was some strange decision made by Referee Javier Estrada Fernandez; he could have easily showed both of them the red cards but instead compromised it with the yellow cards.
But it was Messi then who scored in 41th minute to put Barcelona 2-0 lead & the vengeance was taken. The altercation surely proved to be Roma’s misfortune as Barcelona players were desperate to thrash them though in a friendly match. La Liga season got the juice of spicy quarrel & memorable match as the match moved further with another goal of Ivan Rakitic in the 66th minute. Although, it was almost over for the Roma to make a come back in this game but Barcelona was too anxious to net more goals. The match was an amalgamation of aggression, desperation & quarrel though it was a friendly match,ended up with Barcelona leading 3-0.
This match was Pedro’s potentially last Nou Camp appearance but he was not given any special privilege as he was left out of the front line up since Suarez, Messi and Neymar ruled the Barca’s forward line. When he was making an entry along with the rest of his squad, he seemed to have no smile or sigh because he is almost on the verge to leave the club he served for a decade. Although people applauded him with the cheers as his names was chanted in the crowd to buck him up. The former youth team player’s final match charm was faded by the controversy of Messi & Mapou yet the friendly match was enjoyed deliberately by the players on-off the field.
At the end of the match, Neymar had some ice on his knees and Jordi Alba seemed to have the hamstring problem that had come on half-time. It’s an exception in football when you see so many things going together simultaneously with mixed emotions & gestures. Ultimately, what matters is ‘who win and who lose’ albeit this headbutt surely reminds us of Zinedine Zidane in the World Cup Final (Zidane was playing his career’s last match); he too did the same but the referee considered it too offensive to give him the red card & ultimately France paid its price in the penalty shoot out as they were devoid of its Penalty Shoot out expert.
