Leo Messi’s wife, Antonella Roccuzzo has posted a series of three eye-catching photos on her Instagram Stories account. The pictures showed how Leo Messi took on his oldest son Thiago in FIFA 18.

Lionel Messi is not like most people though, having won 43 individual and team honours during an incredible career at the highest level of the game. But that doesn’t stop the Barcelona star from taking to the screen when he’s not on the pitch, as he did on Monday night alongside his son Thiago.

For the record, Thiago Messi is still just five years old. Leo, meanwhile, is 30. The couple are also expecting their third child.

There were several interesting aspects of Antonella Roccuzzo’s social media updates. The first thing to notice was that Thiago was wearing a Barcelona home shirt. That’s obviously not such a big deal for the lad as his dad is the club’s best player.

When looking at the graphics of the FIFA game, however, it became apparent that Leo and Thiago were facing off in El Clasico. Indeed, the scoreline after 55 minutes of their computer game was Barcelona 3 – Real Madrid 1.

But who played as Real Madrid? Considering what Thiago was wearing, could it be that Leo played as Los Blancos?!
