Thiago Messi Draws Juventus Badge, His Dad's Reaction When He Noticed Was Priceless
Barcelona proved that they could produce on the big stage without Lionel Messi after they beat Inter Milan 2-0 at the Camp Nou.
While it was a big moment for Barça to do it without their talisman, the attention was on the Argentine magician as he sat in the crowd with his son, Thiago Messi Roccuzzo.
The five-year-old produced the best moment of the night when he handed his dad a drawing with the Juventus logo.
Check it out below.
What a brilliant moment from the lad.
Even with Cristiano Ronaldo moving away from Real Madrid to Juventus, Messi can't seem to escape his rivalry with the Portuguese footballer.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner was ruled out of the Inter match after picking up an injury against Sevilla.
Speaking after the Inter match, Sergi Roberto explained how Barcelona prepared for the Champions League clash without Messi.
"The other day it was a shock to see him [Messi] go off," he said (via Marca).
"Today, we knew about it and we took a step forward. We all stepped up and gave a bit extra.
"We always give our all but today a little more. It was a very difficult match."
That's our record without this man since 2010. We should be OK! pic.twitter.com/siqNYa9zSO
