Watch: Lionel Messi Pulls Off Passes No One Else Would Attempt Against Sevilla

Watch: Lionel Messi Pulls Off Passes No One Else Would Attempt Against Sevilla

Lionel Messi's first game as permanent Barcelona captain marked the start of the new era at the Blaugrana but it was essentially more of the same from the five-time Ballon d'Or in the sense that he was just ridiculously good at kicking a ball about as per.

'BreatheMessi' has put together a compilation of all the chances the Argentine created in the 2-1 Spanish Super Cup win over Sevilla in Morocco and it's wonderful stuff. 42 seconds of Messi picking out passes that nobody else sees, with his vision and weight pass out of this world as always.

Messi was involved in both goals, including the assist for Ousmane Dembele's stunning right-footed winner, but his most breathtaking piece of play during the game was that almost superhuman pass to pick out Luis Suarez.

In the 16th minute of the tie, the magician managed to find teammate the Uruguayan with the definition of a 'defence-splitting' pass.

Suarez was unable to supply the finish but again Messi's playmaking abilities were a joke. He's the best passer in world football by a long stretch.

In that situation, most players opt for the easy option but by know we know that Messi is from another planet and he can do things with a football that only others can dream of doing.

With the win on Sunday evening, Messi has now overtaken Andres Iniesta s the most decorated player to play for Barcelona. Just the 33 trophies for the 31-year old.
