WATCH: Brilliant Lionel Messi Pass Against Athletic Bilbao

New, comment

Messi played a crossfield volley pass that needs to be seen.

Barcelona earned a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Athletic Club with Lionel Messi having a fairly average game by his standards. Still, Messi is Messi, and the magic just... happens sometimes.

Take this volleyed crossfield switch. You may miss this one in the game summaries, but it's an amazing piece of skill.

Let's take a second to appreciate the vision and technique necessary to do this. It's the type of pass most players will never complete in their careers. Think about it.
