Messi can match Pele's brand against Real Sociedad Today

 Lionel Messi is one step closer to equaling Pele's record of goals playing for a single club. Barcelona receives Real Sociedad for the Spanish Championship.

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman praised captain Lionel Messi last Tuesday (15), who is one step closer to equaling Pelé's record of goals for a single club. "These numbers are impressive.

The Barça captain will have the opportunity to draw with the football king this Wednesday against Real Sociedad, a match to reinforce the victory path that started against Levante. "The result the other day was very important. The attitude of the team was good and those three points give us a little more tranquility to face tomorrow's game," said Koeman.

The Barça coach, whose team is in eighth position in the league, 9 points behind leader Real Sociedad, acknowledged, however, that "in general we cannot be happy with our trajectory in the league, we have lost games that we could not have lost". "We have to be more regular than we've shown so far," said Koeman.

"We know our situation, we have two more games until the end of the year and we have to win them. They are against good teams, but we must have personality," he explained. "If we go very defensively, pressing when we don't have the ball, I don't think they will score many goals against us," said the Dutch coach...
