Lionel Messi makes history at FC Barcelona despite being held by Cadiz

Barcelona again dropped a point at their home ground, Camp Nou, after drawing 1-1 against Cádiz. A penalty was netted by the Barca captain, Lionel Messi, during the first-half penalty, which was later cancelled out by Aleix Fernández, scoring a penalty in the injury time. Later on, Barca was denied two goals ruling them out as offside after Frenkie de Jong and Pedri’s incorrect runs.

In the first half after netting the penalty, Barça maintained their continuous attack and could have added two more to the score with the help of De Jong and Pedri. Still, unfortunately, their goals were ruled out, claiming off for offside, which also included a peculiar moment when Antoine Griezmann came in the way of Frenkie. This shot was on its way to the back of the net, which was later made offside by Dest when he assisted Pedri.

Riqui Puig was sent to the ground in the late second half, and almost was on the verge of scoring an amazing goal with five minutes in hands to go, but Barca could not hold up their lead due to a very silly foul by Lenglet that resulted in a penalty for Cadiz, where they equalized the match. Later on, Barca couldn’t manage to win.
