Loan Watch: Alen Halilovic highlights vs Real Betis

Lionel Messi might be injured, but Messi 2.0 is improving. A lot.

Barcelona loanee Alen Halilovic started and completed another match for Sporting Gijón, this time against Real Betis on Sunday. The Croatian youngster couldn't stop his team from losing a second straight La Liga game, but his individual performance was once again unbelievable. He is now clearly Gijón's best player, and he runs the team from the right side to the center, firing up some Messi-esque long balls to the opposite side, taking on defenders and beating them with some sick moves, and even pulling off a spectacular assist for his team's goal.

Enjoy the highlights. Can we call him back already?
