FC Barcelona v Chelsea FC - UEFA Champions League Round of 16: Second Leg Photo by Shaun Botterill/Getty Images

Lionel Messi was not only Barcelona’s match-winner against Chelsea, he also helped guide Ousmane Dembele through the vital clash.

Some interesting footage has emerged of Messi instructing Dembele throughout the game, check it out for yourselves.

Messi can be seen encouraging and cajoling the youngster throughout the game as well as appearing to instruct him on where he needed to be on the pitch.

The two combined beautifully for Barcelona’s second goal but it seems that Dembele needs to thanks Messi for more than just his assist.
