Lionel Messi was the hero once again for Barcelona as the Catalan giants defeated Atletico Madrid 1-0 on Sunday evening. The Internet once reacted and celebrated the goal, calling Messi GOAT - Greatest of All Time.

Messi will do these things every week. Making it look normal so anytime he gives a little less than that we think it's failure.— 🇬🇭armah ひ (@awww_ghostTears) December 1, 2019
He is raising the bar too high for himself and NO other player is close to him.
He's the GOAT🐐
When Messi wins his 6th Balon D'or today, the GOAT debate has ended.— Harri Obi™ (@Harri_Obi) December 1, 2019
We will now turn our banter focus on icons; like Messi Vs Michael Jackson, Messi Vs Leonardo Davinci , Messi Vs Abraham Lincoln, etc.
I don't want to mistakenly hear Ronaldo's name again. Are we clear?
With the win, Barcelona returned to the top of La Liga with 31 points. Real Madrid are second on the table with 31 points, however, are behind on goal difference.
