Lionel Messi Very Lucky To Escape A Red Card During Barcelona Vs. Athletic Bilbao

Lionel Messi Very Lucky To Escape A Red Card During Barcelona Vs. Athletic Bilbao

Fans think Lionel Messi should have been shown a straight red card for his stamp on Yeray Alvarez on Tuesday.

Barcelona's 1-0 La Liga victory over Athetlic Bilbao wasn't without controversy as Messi was very lucky to escape a red card for his second half challenge.

With the game goalless, the Argentine caught Yeray on the ankle with a shocking tackle which left the defender rolling around in agony.

The match referee failed to brandish a card to Messi, who went onto set up the only goal of the game. Three minutes after the incident, he created a goal for Ivan Rakitic.

But Messi's stamp was the main talking point from the league clash.
