Even Real Madrid Fans Will Laugh At These Messi Memes

Lionel Messi’s performance with Barcelona this past weekend will go down in history. With his team tied 2-2 against their hated rivals, Real Madrid, Messi scored a last-gasp stoppage time goal in what was likely the final play of the game. The goal, his 500th with Barcelona, gave his team the win and placed the blaugranas in a position to fight for the league title against Real Madrid. It also led to a “no F-ing way” nod from the player Messi is most often compared to: Cristiano Ronaldo. And he did it all at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, in front of thousands of rival fans.

Here’s a clip of Messi’s goal and the madness that ensued.

Aside from his clutch goal, Messi’s celebration also stood out:

After scoring the decisive goal, Messi removed his jersey and displayed it to rival fans, in case they forgot who he was.

Of course, the memes hit social media seconds after Messi scored. Here’s Messi doing a little housework.

Messi’s celebration reminded many of this iconic scene:

Some continued to assert he is from another planet.

And others compared him to a deity.

We were reminded that Messi is a man of many talents…

And treated to alternate realities.

Messi even managed to resurrect this old Mexican meme.

The memes weren’t only about Messi’s goal celebration.

There was this Messi-as-a-wrestler GIF…

And a new version of Cristiano Ronaldo’s iconic statue.
