Messi joined Barcelona's new campaign: No child offside

Against Sevilla, Leo wore a different captain's armband, with the phrase: "No boy out of the game." It is part of a Barsa campaign.

Lionel Messi wore a new captain's armband in the La Liga match against Sevilla. As part of a campaign by the Barcelona Foundation, the film changed from the classic one with Catalan colors to a totally yellow one, which has a phrase written on it: "No Child Offside". The message for inclusion was chosen by the Barcelona fans, who had the possibility to vote for it through an application. There were four possible options and ultimately that was the people's winner. Right to Messi's arm.

The game at Ramón Sanchez Pijuan did not bring any major surprises. Barcelona, who arrived as a favorite, did not go through major shocks and beat Sevilla 2-0, with goals from Ousmane Dembelé and Lionel himself. However, the curious fact occurred in the prelude to the game, when the captain took to the field, with a tape that tries to encourage the most vulnerable children to have equal opportunities from different social inclusion projects.

As we well know, sport works as a fundamental weapon for the development of the little ones, because through the different disciplines, they begin to generate their own ambitions, skills and movements. However, not all have the same conditions, or possibilities, so it is a great gesture of the institution to encourage these differences to end soon. The Barça Foundation project corresponds to hard work with boys and girls of different ethnic groups and social classes in Spain. 

In any case, it should be noted that it is not the first time that Lionel Messi has participated and is a fundamental piece of solidarity actions. In fact, at the beginning of February, the Argentine donated his boots to the National Museum of Art of Catalonia, which are on display in the main hall. Then, they will be auctioned and will use the money to help children with various diseases.

The record that Dembélé reached after the victory of Barcelona

With his goal against Sevilla, Ousmane Dembélé became the third top French scorer in the history of Barcelona. In this way, the 23-year-old attacker reached 26 goals and scored his name on a podium, which finds him second to Antoine Griezzman, in constant struggle, since he only has one more goal. Meanwhile, the top French scorer in the history of the 'Blaugrana' club belongs indisputably to Thierry Henry with 49 goals.
