Watch: The reason why Leo Messi’s goal vs Villarreal should have been disallowed

Another match another goal for Lionel Messi.

Barcelona defeated Villarreal 2-0 on Saturday, re-establishing the five point lead at the top of La Liga table.

It was a tough one though, Villarreal showed good resistance until the 72nd minute, when Luis Suarez scored to give Barca the lead.

The hosts were playing with ten men since the 60th minute after Daniel Raba was shown the straight red card.


Barca’s second came in the 83rd minute through Messi.

After intercepting the play, Sergio Busquets passed the ball to Messi, who embarresed two defenders to score behind the goalkeeper.

It was his 525th goal for Barcelona, equalling Gerd Muller’s record for one club.

However, there’s a bizzarre reason why the five time Ballon d’Or winner’s goal should have been disallowed.

In the video below you can see there is a second ball on the pitch, while Messi is in the process of scoring.
