Lionel Messi Pulls Off Genius Assist From Free-Kick Against Celta Vigo

And Messi stepped over the ball from about 22 yards out as Celta Vigo stationed two of their players on the line to deny the Barcelona captain.

However, the 33-year-old Argentine superstar fooled the opposition players by curling in a cross to Suarez, who slammed his headed effort past Ruben Blanco.

Fans wasted no time in flocking to Twitter and praising the six-time Ballon d'Or winner for pulling off a magnificent assist for Barcelona's opener.

Barcelona, who are locked in a heated title race with fierce rivals Real Madrid, lead 1-0 going into half-time.
