We ran out of superlatives for Lionel Messi a long time ago, but the little genius was at it again on Sunday as Barcelona battered Real Betis 5-0.

Messi scored twice, assisted and at one point dribbled past so many Real Betis players that even the home fans started applauding.

He also did a couple of things for the first time ever - like assist for the fifth La Liga game in a row.

And score and assist in four consecutive La Liga games.

And his dribbling was better than we’ve seen in La Liga for a few seasons now.

He’s also the ONLY player to score more than 25 goals in each of the last 10 seasons.

What an absolute legend.
