Fans have been blown away by the skill of the Argentine forward and have praised his unbelievable ability on the ball.
"That is just insane. He's operating on a completely different plane[t] to the rest of us," user hcb8849 wrote.
Someone else posted: "He's also watching his teammate's movements while doing this. Insane skill."
A third added: "Messi's body feints look incredibly simple but they still fool top players. The only bad thing you could say about it is that it doesn't look very entertaining like a Ronaldinho trick, but only because there is so little wasted movement. It makes his opponents look like boys every time."
And Barca fan CruyffsPlan said: "I'm so glad I exist at the same time as this little man. I'm not even exaggerating but he's responsible for 85% of my happiness these days. We're all so lucky to witness him on a weekly basis. The perfect footballer."
Messi has missed Barcelona's opening two La Liga clashes due to a calf strain, but he could be fit in time for Saturday's clash with Osasuna.
But the five-time Ballon d'Or winner was in attendance for the Spanish champions' 5-2 victory over Real Betis on Sunday.
Messi, who sat alongside Luis Suarez at the Camp Nou, watched on as Antoine Griezmann scored a brace on his home debut and channelled his inner LeBron James for his celebration.
And the Barcelona captain's son Mateo also had a hilarious exchange with Suarez when he celebrated Betis scoring against his dad's side.
Will Messi finish the new season as Europe's top scorer?
Let us know in the comments.
