Messi wasted no time influencing the game, incredibly setting up Neymar in the ninth minute of their fixture on Saturday.

Pablo Sarabia played a ball into Messi who delicately flicked the ball behind him with his weaker right foot.

He appeared to guide the ball to his Brazilian teammate who fired home with a low drive.
