Lionel Messi continues to haunt Manchester City’s dreams

He’s done it again

Lionel Messi has done it again. After scoring a hat trick against Manchester City at the Camp Nou in the last Champions League match day, he’s gone and scored the first goal of the return fixture at the Ethiad Stadium.

He waltzed through the City defense with ease in the 20th minute and finished easily past Willy Caballero.

It was a clinical counter-attack by the Blaugrana ended with Neymar finding Messi with a great pass and the miniature Argentinian magician took care of the rest with his brilliance.

Barcelona are off to a fine start away from home as they look to take full control of their Champions League group.

This was Barca’s first real chance of the match as it’s gotten off rather timid start. However, the goal has opened up the play and we will assuredly get more goals in this one. Hopefully they come from the Barca side.
