Messi was so embarrassed by Alba’s dive, he did this next…

Jordi Alba conned referee Alejandro Jose Hernandez Hernandez into thinking he was fouled by an Eibar player for a penalty even though he only tripped on the turf, as Barcelona battled for the La Liga title. But the foul was so unashamedly dishonest that Lionel Messi, who may or may not know a thing or two about fraud, couldn’t think of anything else but to send the spot kick straight down the middle at goalkeeper Yoel Rodriguez with a wink and a nod. Plenty of theatrics at the Camp Nou, then, but no title.
