VIDEO: Lionel Messi misses open goal, scores 60th of the season

Sublime and ridiculous from the Argentine magician, we’re not used to him offering that balance.

IT WASN’T QUITE as bad as Dirk Kuyt’s miss today, but Lionel Messi will be kicking himself for this one.

We know the little flea has an unbelievably good chip in his arsenal, but it seems (for once) he chose to use it at the wrong time.

Tut, and indeed, tut.

However, he did manage to score on two other occasions as Barca romped home 4-1 winners over Zaragoza.

Here’s one he did manage to put away, his 59th of the season. His second of the night, a penalty, came after the break.
