The Barcelona skipper curled in a gorgeous free-kick from 35-yards to notch his 600th career goal for Barcelona.

Fans inside the Camp Nou erupted when the ball hit the back of the net and the boys inside the BT Sport's studio also went mad for the Argentine hero.

Ferdinand and Lineker went ballistic as Messi smashed in a glorious Champions League goal.

The former Manchester United defender cut a shocked figure with his hands over his mouth as he watched in amazement, while the ex-Barcelona striker screamed "WOW" before grabbing his phone and immediately posting about the little magician.

Ferdinand, meanwhile, didn't hold back when asked about Virgil van Dijk's defensive position for Barcelona's first goal.

"Virgil van Dijk...he's at fault," he said. "He can see Suarez there, he's pointing where he wants it. It's not rocket science.

"He's right in front of him - that's your man - the No.9 on the back of his shirt. Static. Virgil van Dijk there was static. It's criminal.

"In that position he has to be Matip's eyes and ears. He'll be disappointed with that."

Barcelona head into next week's second-leg at Anfield with a three-goal advantage.
