Leo Messi did not train on Friday, with the coach’s permission, and will not be part of the squad called up for the trip to Eibar on Saturday at 6 p.m. Thus, the Argentine prodigy can breathe before the Copa América and after a season during which he was one of the players most used by Ronald Koeman.

 

This season, the captain has lifted the Copa del Rey and played 47 matches (35 in La Liga, 6 in the Champions League, 5 in the Copa del Rey and 1 in the Supercopa). With 30 goals scored in La Liga, he is almost guaranteed to win his 8th Pichichi Trophy, rewarding the top scorer in the championship.

 

It should be remembered that the native of Rosario broke Xavi’s record for matches with Barça this season and that he now has 778. He also dethroned Pelé by becoming the player who scored the most goals with the same club ( 672).
