IT FEELS LIKE Lionel Messi does this every game, but it never really gets old.

On Saturday, the the Argentine was at it again, spinning one defender, hop-stepping past another and slotting home one of his trademark goals.

The goal put Barcelona 1-0 up on Celta de Vigo, but it didn’t all go Messi’s way.

Earlier in the match both he and teammate Luis Suarez hit the post just seconds apart, and you would have bet on either of them scoring from the positions they were in.

Neymar later added a similarly exquisite second to consolidate Barcelona’s lead, and they ultimately earned a 5-0 win, with further goals from Messi, Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti.
