Lionel Messi is a genius. Simple as that. He produced yet another scintillating performance in the Champions League, masterminding a stunning victory against Spurs.
The diminutive Argentinean great pulled the strings in the attacking third, creating opportunities and scoring goals. A constant threat throughout Wednesday's European fixture.
His stats echo that sentiment.
Messi had 96 game touches; from touches deep into his half to touches inside Spurs' box.
His passing was on point, too. The Barcelona captain completed 65 passes with a 84.6% accuracy.
He was also at his dribbling best, taking on players with absolute ease not to mention bagging a brace.
His individual highlights make for incredible viewing. Time to gawk:
What a player.
The best ever...?
