WATCH: Lionel Messi's perfect pass sets up Munir for a goal vs. Leicester City

Munir has scored for the second preseason match running. After finishing an easy chance against Celtic on the weekend, his International Champions Cup run got even better with a much more difficult goal against English Premier League winners, Leicester City

It all began with a inch-perfect through ball by Lionel Messi that caught the Leicester City right back barely out of position. Watch here:

Munir did all so well to get in front of his defender, take a touch, and finish brilliantly past the Leicester goalkeeper for his second goal in as many games. The tally gave Barcelona the 1-0 lead about 25 minutes into the first half.

In a battle of two champions of arguably the two best leagues in the world, Barcelona have the early advantage and have looked the better and more dominant side in the early going. They are controlling the play and possession with ease and don't appear to be in danger at the back from the Foxes.
