Lionel Messi is a goal-scoring machine. He scored two goals in the second leg of the Champion’s League match versus AC Milan, and while both goals were nothing short of great, the first of his two goals was beautiful.
It only took just under five minutes for Barcelona to strike in the Nou Camp thanks to the brilliance of Messi. After the standard tic-tac passes that Barcelona are known for, the ball was played to Messi in a very tight space, but he somehow managed to fire off a rocket into the top corner to give Barcelona the 1-0 lead.
Here’s another look to get a sense of just how tight the space was. Truly brilliant.
