Compilation Of Lionel Messi Performing 'Leo Lift' And Making The Champions League His Playground
BT Sport have posted a stunning compilation of Lionel Messi ruining opponents with his signature move.
On Twitter, the broadcaster have collated eight different instances of Messi well and truly making the Champions League his playground across 47 seconds of action.
The 'Leo lift' is a rather simple maneuver but it's one that Messi has perfected. In all sorts of different situations he's able to deftly flick the ball and send defenders to the shops.
Celtic skipper and hardman Scott Brown went to tackle the Argentine aggressively but he promptly scooped the ball over him and left him right on his backside.
Mesut Ozil, Alex Song and Manuel Almunia were all ruined by the six-time Ballon d'Or winner in multiple masterclasses against Arsenal, while Liverpool defender Andy Robertson was also another victim of Messi's sublime skill.
