Lionel Messi's Brace Gives Barcelona the Lead in Champions League Clasico

Football fans have been treated to three Clasicos in the month of April, with one more left to go in May. First, Barcelona and Real Madrid played to a draw in league play and then Real Madrid took bragging rights by beating Barcelona in the Copa del Rey. On Wednesday, it was the first leg of the Champions League Clasico as the two top teams from Spain met in the European semifinals. For a good chunk of the match, it looked like the teams were battling to a 0-0 draw, but then Lionel Messi went and did what he's been doing all season, he scored a couple goals giving Barcelona a 2-0 win. The teams meet again at Camp Nou on Tuesday May 3rd to see who goes to Wembley for the Champions League final.
