Lionel Messi has done, once again, as Lionel Messi is known to do: he has scored another fantastic Lionel Messi goal (video below) in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.
One, two, three, four, five defenders in his way? So what, says Messi.
One or two decent attempts to tackle the ball away — and perhaps even succeeding on at least one occasion? Again, so what?
He’ll have the ball back, continue on his merry way and tuck the ball just inside the far post, all while falling down, getting back up and falling down again. The goal put Barcelona 2-0 ahead on the night (3-1 on aggregate). Prior to this post being published, he scored again, but the goal was taken away for a perceived handball upon video review.
Surely we’ve discovered a superhuman soccer league we can send him to by now, just to level the playing field a bit more for the actual humans walking planet Earth.
Anyway, here’s the latest head-shaking, smirk-inducing Messi goal video you came to see.
Oh. My. Messi.
