Inside Sport - - PUNTER’S CHANCE - – Cur­tis Figon

The Ar­gen­tine mae­stro (pic­tured above) is in pole po­si­tion to win his sixth top goalscorer gong. The li‡le ma­gi­cian, ar­guably the best of his gen­er­a­tion, will lead a fright­en­ing a‡ack able to scare even the world’s mean­est de­fend­ers. Un­like with most sport­ing su­per­stars, it’s dif­fi­cult to pin­point a weak­ness in Messi’s ma­roon and blue locker. A“er last sea­son’s dis­ap­point­ing quar­ter-fi­nal exit – and watch­ing bi‡er ri­vals Real li“ the tro­phy – this could be the sea­son fans wit­ness Messi take his game to an­other level again, lead­ing his side to a sixth Euro­pean crown.
