Some players would have just played a safe pass to retain possession and not had the confidence in playing such a risky pass.

But as we know, Messi is no ordinary footballer and his incredible vision and accuracy was just wonderful.

It's so satisfying that you could watch it on repeat without fail, the technique and movement of the ball so sublime. Fans on Twitter were in awe of the bit of magic Messi conjured up:

Messi was denied a reunion with long-time rival Cristiano Ronaldo after he tested positive for coronavirus again.

The 35-year-old contracted coronavirus while on national team duty with Portugal but is said to have not yet developed any symptoms.

Prior to Juventus' visit of Barelona this evening, he vented his frustration with the situation on Instagram. Posting a picture with the caption: "Feeling good and healthy! Forza Juve!" - he then replied to his own message: "PCR is bull***t" before the comment was later removed.

Barcelona and Juventus are slated to meet again in the group stage on 8 December, with fans desperate to see Messi and Ronaldo on the same pitch once again.
