Barcelona fans were raving over their star forward Lionel Messi after his performance in the 5-1 win over Real Valladolid yesterday.
Was missing out on Neymar a blessing in disguise for Barcelona?
The little magician scored two goals and assisted a further two, including scoring a sumptuous free-kick from more than 20-yards.
His tally in last night’s game took him up to five goals and five assists in just eight games across all competitions (via Transfermarkt).
Messi’s performance last night saw him receive high praise from former Barcelona favourite Gary Lineker, as he praised the Argentine’s passing ability and goalscoring ability.
The victory sees the Camp Nou giants rise to the top of La Liga, two points ahead of Granada, who face Getafe on Thursday evening.
Fans were in awe of the diminutive attacker after yet another crucial contribution from Messi as they took to Twitter to show their reactions.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Camp Nou faithful:
