Andres Iniesta Shows His Class With Brilliant Assist For Vissel Kobe

Andres Iniesta Shows His Class With Brilliant Assist For Vissel Kobe

Andres Iniesta rolled back the years with two assists and a lovely piece of skill as Vissel Kobe won their Asian Champions League matchday one game 5-1 against Johor Darul Ta'zim.

The 35-year-old, who was recently linked with a surprise move back to Barcelona, started in the AFC Champions League game and played a brilliant ball for Keijiro Ogawa to open the scoring after just 13 minutes.

Safawi Rasid equalised for the visitors on 27 minutes before Kyogo Furuhashi added a second for the Japanese sid.

Iniesta nearly had a second assist on 42 minutes. He played a brilliant back heel flick before getting the ball back and playing another perfect through ball but his teammate was adjudged to be offside.

Ogawa completed his hat-trick in the second half with goals in the 58th and 72nd minute with Douglas scoring in between in the 65th minute.

Iniesta also provided the assist for Ogawa's third, the fifth for his side, with a perfect cross that rounded off a performance that left fans on social media singing his praises again.

In January the four time Champions League winner was linked with a move back to the Camp Nou but Marca reported earlier this week that the club never considered bringing him back.

The La Liga champions were focused on bringing in a forward due to Luis Suarez's injury but failed to find a replacement for the Uruguayan.
