The Twitterverse justifiably went crazy over Messi’s goal.
Leo Messi is the only player who can still make me smile after such a horrible day. That chip can only be done by him. Pure beauty. The perfect remedy.

Suárez did so so so well with that through ball, brilliant run and awareness by Alba to find Messi, and the signature chip is the cherry on top!

Messi-Alba is a duo I’ll never get bored of. Stunning chip from Messi to grab his 19th league goal of the season.

Those chip finishes from Messi are a work of art, makes it look so easy every time. Him and Alba again, but in reverse this time

As a goalkeeper you can expect what the player with a ball coming can do but you can’t even think of Messi what he gonna do with the ball. Incredible chip by Lionel Messi. Its the finish that takes many players to do after loosing 146936594 one on one chances.

A chip over Bono from #Messi makes it 2-0 to Barça. Never a good idea to leave the league’s top scorer totally wide open in front of goal…
