Messi And Neymar Score The Perfect Goal

Ben Migono / November 6, 2016

On September 13th, Barcelona got back to its winning ways by laying a thrashing down upon Celtic. It was unfortunate for Celtic to face FCB after they suffered a 2-1 loss to Alaves just 3 days earlier.

 

It only took 3 minutes for Barcelona to strike, and it was a stunning shot from Messi that opened the scoring. It was Messi’s second goal, however, that turned the heads of many onlookers.

 

 

Messi starts the play off by bringing the ball to the middle of the field. As soon as he brings a defender to him, he passes the ball off to Neymar for a give-and-go. Messi is able to get past his initial defender with ease in order to receive the return pass from Neymar. At this point, the real attack flourishes. Neymar sprints past his own defenders led by an outstanding pass from Messi. Another touch by Neymar to clear some space allows Messi to find an open gap to receive the ball from Neymar once again. The pass may have been a little behind, but Messi managed to corral the ball for an easy tap in.

 

4 passes, 1 goal. Easy.

 

Barcelona ended up with a 7-0 win which included a Messi hat trick, four assists from Neymar, and two goals from Luis Suarez.
