Lionel Messi is the best at what he does, and constantly reminds us of that with unbelievable goals. His most recent magic trick came in Barcelona’s 2-0 victory at Sevilla. Messi took a pass from Andres Iniesta, slipped the ball through defender Emir Spahic’s legs and chipped a shot over goalkeeper Andres Palop. The masterful net was Messi’s 31st league goal this season, one behind Cristiano Ronaldo’s league-leading total, and the 150th league goal of his career.
