While Lionel Messi has a habit of humiliating opposition players during competitive matches, he cannot stop himself from being who he is in training as well.
The Barcelona genius has a knack of even making a mockery of his own team-mates.
One such compilation of his goals from the Ciudad Esportiva training ground was put up by FC Barcelona on their YouTube account, which you can see here.
It seems no-one is safe when Messi is around.
Which is your favourite of these goals and how would you stop Messi in training?
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.
While Barcelona thrashed Las Palmas 5-0 in their La Liga game on Saturday, it was another fine outing for the little maestro, Lionel Messi.
Luis Suarez scored two goals, Messi scored one, Arda Turan got on the scoresheet and full-back Aleix Vidal chipped in too, but it was the Argentine superstar who achieved yet another astonishing feat.
Messi now has scored a goal against every current team in La Liga.
Las Palmas were the only remaining team in the Spanish top flight that Messi had not found the back of the net against.
But he now has a goal against 35 Spanish teams and is level with Real Madrid legend Raul in that context.
Interestingly, Messi’s favorite opposition are Atletico Madrid and Sevilla – he has hit 21 goals against both clubs.
Meanwhile, Barcelona’s next challenge will be a meeting with Real Sociedad in the Copa del Rey quarter-final, the first-leg of which will be held at the Anoeta on January 19.
