WATCH: Leo Messi’s tight-angled blast gives Barcelona lead vs. Celtic

He’s done it again

Guess who has Barcelona’s first UEFA Champions League goal of the season? If you guess Lionel Messi you’re both correct and very boring because it was obvious. The Argentine superstar opened the scoring against Celtic in only the 3rd minute of the two club’s opening group match of the competition.

Messi got his goal in spectacular fashion when he blasted in left-footed shot from a ridiculous angle that should’ve been impossible to score from. But Messi has overcome the impossible his whole career and made it routine just like he did on this sensational goal.

It’s Barcelona and Leo’s first goal of the Champions League and for sure won’t be the last. Celtic are coming off a huge win over their arch rivals at the weekend and Barcelona embarrassed by a loss to Alaves, but it appears as if the Blaugrana have shaken off that disappointment to take an early lead.
