Messi played a big role in his side's opening goal against Osasuna on Saturday.
In the 30th minute, the 33-year-old brilliantly picked out Alba with a stunning lofted through-ball that bamboozled Osasuna's defence.
The left-back completed the move with a superb finish, smashing the ball into the back of the net to give Barcelona the lead in glorious fashion.
