In the clip, cameras follow the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner as he makes his way towards the home dressing room.
He walks past a number of security guards, who all give admiring nods, before bumping into teammates Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba in the corridor.
It just gives us a sense of how influential Messi was within the squad before his summer move to Paris Saint-Germain last year.
Messi's importance off the pitch for Barcelona was once again broadcast when they faced Real Valladolid in a game that had become even more important following Atletico Madrid's loss the previous night.
A camera in the tunnel picked up his speech to teammates before they went back out onto the pitch.
Messi pep talk in the tunnel: "We have to step it up a gear, we have to play with more rhythm. We have to win this however we can"— Samuel Marsden (@samuelmarsden) April 5, 2021
"Let's move it from one side to the other that they receive width to the space." he was heard saying. "We are going to put more rhythm or it is going to complicate us. You have to put one more gear. Only one goal, only one goal."
Messi's influence is undeniable and in 2019, following the Joan Gamper Trophy match against Boca Juniors, he gave a brilliant speech to the crowd telling them they would be hoping to secure a Champions League trophy.
"We still have some unfinished business in the Champions League - more than anything - because of the way we were knocked out of the competition," Messi stressed.
"We promise we will do everything possible so much that the coveted Champions League will come back to Camp Nou."
Of course, they failed to lift Europe's most coveted prize that year but his speech must have given his teammates a real lift.
Messi has been linked with a move to Barcelona this summer. Would Barca fans like to see him back at the Camp Nou?
