These Are Lionel Messi's Greatest Comebacks Of All Time

Over the years, we have been privileged enough to see some unforgettable Lionel Messi comebacks. 

The Argentinean star has lead both his club FC Barcelona and Argentina to some epic turnovers that nobody even dared to dream of.

There is something about comebacks. They're just so dramatic, so nerve wrecking.

There is simply nothing better than overcoming all the odds and a hefty deficit to make the taste of glory even sweeter.

Here is a compilation of Messi's greatest comebacks in his career playing for club and country.

Watch Lionel Messi Make Ray Hudson Squeal With Another Magisterial Hat Trick

You have to feel a little bad for Leganes. No one was going to stop Lionel Messi on Saturday. You also have to feel bad for anyone who doesn’t like Ray Hudson, because he was in full form as well. Barcelona inched closer to the LaLiga title with a 3-1 win over Leganes at the Camp Nou thanks to a Lionel Messi hat trick.

The Blaugrana moved 12 points above Atletico Madrid, which plays rival Real Madrid on Sunday. 

Poor Leganes tried everything to slow Messi down, but, as is often the case, it was just Messi’s day.

Chucky Will Haunt This Goalie’s Nightmares As PSV Scores 3 Goals In 5 Minutes

Hirving Lozano's nickname Chucky invokes images of the creepy redheaded doll of horror film fame and after Saturday he’ll be haunting the nightmares of AZ Alkmaar keeper Marco Bizot.

Lozano, a Mexico international, used his speed and hustle to score the second goal in the midst of PSV Eindhoven scoring three goals in five minutes for a 3-2 win on Saturday in the Eredivisie. 

Lozano’s goal was his 15th of his debut season with PSV, pulling him to within one of league-leader Fran Sol. It came in the 76th minute.

Paul Pogba Destroyed Manchester City’s Dreams Like An Ashley Young Tackle On Sergio Aguero

From coronation to capitulation in about 99 seconds. Paul Pogba scored two goals in less than two minutes and Manchester City went from cruising to the title to a second consecutive embarrassing defeat as Manchester United claimed an incredible Manchester Derby victory 3-2 on Saturday at the Etihad. 

Guardiola Drops Mourinho-Pogba Fallout Bombshell On The Eve Of Manchester Derby

On the eve of a Manchester Derby that could decide the Premier League title, Pep Guardiola has revealed some pretty destabilizing claims concerning Paul Pogba’s past, present and future at Manchester United. According to Guardiola, Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, offered his client to the Citizens over the January transfer window.   

We’re Not Sure What Aaron Ramsey Just Did But It Was Amazing

Let’s just get this straight — we don’t know what we just saw, but we know we liked it. Arsenal cruised to a 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow in the Europa League quarterfinal first leg on Thursday thanks to an absolutely absurd Aaron Ramsey goal.

To set the stage, Ramsey had already put the Gunners ahead with a goal in the ninth minute only for Aleksandr Golovin to equalize six minutes later with a brilliant free kick. Alexandre Lacazette restored Arsenal’s advantage with a penalty kick but the Gunners weren’t done.

Manchester City Turns Tinder Blue

Manchester City may not have been able to do much in its Champions League match against Liverpool on Wednesday, but on Thursday they found a match that more appropriately suits the club’s tactics — a match for financial gain. The Citizens turned Tinder blue on Thursday, announcing a multi-year partnership with the dating app with a giant, sky-blue Tinder blimp. 

Jurgen Klopp Is Pep Guardiola's Kryptonite

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is Pep Guardiola's kryptonite. 

The charismatic German has beaten Guardiola more than any other manager — a total of seven victories for Klopp dating back to meetings between the two in the Bundesliga. 

This is a remarkable achievement, especially if one considers how dominating Guardiola's teams (be it Barcelona, Bayern Munich or Manchester City) normally are.
