Messi wasted no time influencing the game, incredibly setting up Neymar in the ninth minute of their fixture on Saturday.
Pablo Sarabia played a ball into Messi who delicately flicked the ball behind him with his weaker right foot.
He appeared to guide the ball to his Brazilian teammate who fired home with a low drive.

Messi’s touch for the assist is mad— Barça Pictures #14 (@Barca__pictures) August 6, 2022
One tweeted: "The touch - he meant to do it, didn’t he? It’s absolutely incredible, you can tell by the way he’s looking over his shoulder that it’s intentional."
A second wrote: "Messi meant that and no one is telling me otherwise."
A third added: "What an assist."
Messi then scored two late goals including an outrageous bicycle kick goal in his side's 5-0 win.
