Alba praises Messi after 300 milestone

Jordi Alba has praised Lionel Messi after the Argentine forward scored his 300 and 301st Barcelona goal in the 2-1 win over Granada.

The 25-year-old's second-half brace against El Grana secured all three points at Los Carmenes.

And the Spanish youngster has insisted that the Blaugrana record-breaker decided what was a very tough game.

“It was difficult for us here,” he told Gol TV. “We played well in the second half, but overall it was a tough match.

“We saw that they could cause some damage when they beat Real Madrid, but ultimately Leo decided the game for us.

“However much you praise Messi, it is not enough.”
