Lionel Messi was Barcelona’s match-winner against Atletico Madrid on Sunday but it seems that he may have had a little help from his friends.

Some interesting video has emerged from Sunday’s game which seems to show Sergio Busquets getting Gerard Pique and Ivan Rakitic to help out in the wall.

The tall trio seem to be trying to block goalkeeper Jan Oblak’s view prior to Messi’s free kick going over the wall and into the top corner.

See for yourselves...

Barca’s team spirit has been one of their greatest strengths this season, and this seems to be yet another great example of it.
