David Ospina 'Breaks Lionel Messi's Ankles' - Napoli Score Moments Later

David Ospina 'Breaks Lionel Messi's Ankles' - Napoli Score Moments Later

Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina managed to send Lionel Messi tumbling to the ground with a body feint - before Dries Mertens put the Italians ahead moments later.

The Italian side are hosting Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie and took a shock lead in the first half.

But just before they took the lead, Ospina received the ball in his own box and managed to evade a pressing Messi who slid to the turf in the San Paulo Stadium.

Check out the clip below.

Twitter reacted to the former Arsenal keeper managing to give the 32-year-old a taste of his own medicine.









Gennaro Gattuso's side were big underdogs heading into the game and are missing key players such as Kalidou Koulibaly.

But the Serie A side took the lead through Mertens' beautiful curling effort which took him level with Marek Hamsik as 'Gli Azzurri's' all-time top goalscorer.

Barcelona looked toothless going forward and failed to register a shot on target.

However, Antoine Griezmann managed to level for Quique Setien's side just before the hour mark.

Do you think Napoli defeating Barcelona would be the biggest shock in the round of 16?

Sound off in the comments below.
