  • Official statement is, the goal have scored Messi. That's what LFP and uefa says, and referee also have written it for Messi.

  • i would rather them make it an own goal. i dont want messi's record to be tainted in any way. hes going to get the 86 anyway, only 3 more!!!

  • FCB website gave the goal to Messi while Athletic Bilbao says it is an own goal.

  • True lafikdadi. I hope whoscored change it...

  • About second goal; if the ball goes on target we have goal for Messi, if not it's own goal. I think it's own goal :F

  • Whoa. Barca plays amazing football today.

  • According to Goal.com: Own Goal - Amorebieta; Goal.com did not give the goal to Messi; I thought the same way

  • I don't think so... It was a shot that wasn't going in, so it's an own goal, is clear.

  • This game is over

  • The goal is given to Messi; I think it was becos it was his effort that the defender was trying to stop but could not; I don't know but I feel that way and so the goal is given to him.

  • It's an own goal of Amorebieta. Please change it.

  • Is Messi goal not an OWN GOAL?

  • 3-2 for barca messi will not score today

  • Barca win, another great game for Don Andres :) 4:1 - Messi, Iniesta, Villa and i hope Pedrito. For Bilbao Susaeta.
