    technically not Messi's assist

    Lamela was the one that got the ball to Kun

    Actually, they only need to win by only 1 goal of diference.
    Both teams currently have 3 points each, with a minimum win whomever wins makes 6, and that will be enough.

    I don't watch Serie A hardly at all, I used to in the 1990s, but it bores me now. I sometimes watch it for about 5 minutes or 10 minutes while flicking through the channels. It used to be the best league in the world but now it's competing with the German league for 3rd best league in Europe, and miles behind the top two which I don't even have to name since everyone knows what they are.

    Higuain's goal record in Serie A this season is impressive, no doubt, but Aguero's goal per game ratio is not far behind, and in a stronger league. In fact if you average over the last three seasons, Aguero has scored more goals per game, even in a more difficult league. Aguero is a clinical finisher, a half chance for others is a clear chance for him. Higuain just the kind of striker that stands in the best position and tries to get tap ins. I can't remember him screaming many 20 yarders in. I don't know about Serie A but I can't remember any in big international matches, it''s hard to think of a really good quality goal scored in the knockout stages of a big tournament. Ok, the goal against Belgium was smartly taken in the last world cup, but it's not enough for me to take Aguero out of the side. The rest of his world cup was mediocre.

    At the Copa America last year it didn't quite happen for him. Obviously the miss in the last minute of the final (although debatable how bad a miss it really was) and then missed a penalty.

    It's not just about goals but for me neither of them adds much creativity or team play, they are mostly just out and out goal scorers.

    Edison Cavani is another player who scored a ton of goals in Serie A, but looks really average on the big international stage.

    In the end we were just helping Chile, we could just won 1-0 and get to QF anyway, but we got to get Messi in and score 5 goals. Now Chile only haves to tie to go through.

    So Bolivia have been mathematically eliminated by that result, they needed a Panama win to cling on to a faint hope.

    That free kick goal by Messi was so beautiful. He makes it look so easy.

    The Bolivia free kick goal is still better, but still....that was so effortless looking.

    Agreed, he made it look easy. It was actually fairly far out.

    We are big favourites but will end up losing the final vs Haiti. Every year we get a worse team to lose with.

    You know nothing about football if you think it's easy to score in the Italian league... Not even gonna reply to your comment.
    If BPL was so good than how come Leicester won it?

    Hi Sacki, I am not looking for an argument/fight or whatever. We can just agree to disagree, OK.

    Anyone have any updates on Di Maria?

    Great game last night btw. It must have been really special for all those in attendance, most of which were clearly there to see Messi, to get such a show once he came on!
