Barcelona’s little magician, Lionel Messi, is often known to pull off some outrageous tricks on the pitch. And on Saturday, Messi once again demonstrated his genius.
While playing against Las Palmas, Messi, after seeing goalkeeper Javi Varas off his line and not protecting the near post, curled a beauty in on goal in the 70th minute.
Although the attempt was somehow saved by Varas, it has to be said that everyone who had a decent look at it, including the Las Palmas team, were left stunned for a second or so.
A spectator present at the Camp Nou recorded footage of the mind-blowing attempt that Messi made and you’re assured to watch it on loop.
While that was just another Messi moment, he has once scored from behind the goal as well. And the video of that was put on FC Barcelona’s YouTube channel.
Messi, meanwhile also scored the second goal in his side’s 5-0 hammering of Las Palmas on Saturday. Luis Suarez, Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal too, got on the scoresheet.
