Watch: Messi torments two defenders with brilliant nutmeg & solo run


Football may have returned in strange circumstances, but thankfully some things have remained the same: namely, Lionel Messi embarrassing defenders for Barcelona.

Messi has wasted no time in getting straight back up to speed, breaking records in his first game for over three months in Barcelona’s victory over Mallorca at the weekend.

Barca then hosted Leganes on Tuesday night, and Messi once more proved instrumental.

The Argentina international scored Barcelona’s second in their 2-0 victory from the penalty spot, but only after winning the penalty himself with a superb solo run from the halfway line, nutmegging one defender and tormenting another.
