Stat proves Lionel Messi is a SUPER-SUB ?
Of course, the Argentine is an undoubted starter at Barcelona. However, there are rare occasions, usually to do with his fitness or the little importance of the game, when Messi is being left on the bench. However, when he comes on during those matches, he delivers, as he did in the recent game vs Sevilla.
