Fresh off a second straight drubbing of the once-mighty Barcelona, Bayern Munich was voted the top team in the Associated Press global soccer poll for the sixth straight week.
It's turning into a procession for Bayern Munich in the Associated Press global soccer poll.
Lionel Messi's domination of European soccer was clear in the Associated Press Global Soccer Rankings, while his team Barcelona stayed at the top of the poll.
It took something very special to topple Lionel Messi from his position on top of the first AP Global Football rankings survey of 2013, and Edinson Cavani's perfect hat trick for Napoli did it.
Lionel Messi moved back to the top of the AP Global Soccer rankings, and Barcelona stayed No. 1 in the team poll after a 4-0 win over Levante in the Spanish league.
"There's a Mario Gomez song button you can press every time he scores," Tidey added. "It's been pressed five times in the past week."
"Lionel Messi, the little flea, just can't stop biting," panelist Will Tidey of the San Francisco-based Bleacher Report said. "Fresh from his Ballon d'Or coronation, Messi scored one and was involved in two others as Barcelona beat Malaga."
