Maybe we aren’t so terrible because he’s one of us. He can make us seem better than we are. Lionel Messi is known for his amazing footballing skills. Wether it’s about scoring or assisting, Leo is always on top. Barcelona’s Talisman has shown again and again that what he is capable of doing on the pitch.
His breathtaking dribbling, taking on players, chip shots over the goal keeper to every other possible thing. Lionel Messi is even good at taking a free kick. Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has been one step ahead of everyone in terms of nutmegging opponent players.
Recently his nutmegs have taken the social media by storm. Whenever Messi nutmegs any player, the social media is full of praise. Nobody forgot that nutmeg by the little Argentine to Milner against Manchester City in Uefa Champions League 2015.
Pep Guardiola’s reaction after that nutmeg was enough to prove how big a deal it was. Later on, Messi continued with nutmegging players from time to time.
One of the great nutmegs was when Leo was playing the clasico and this time it was Real Madrid’s midfielder Toni Kroos in the receiving end. It was 2 years back when Messi stunned the German player with mouth-watering nutmeg.
The attack started from the defense as the center back Mathieu passed the ball towards Mascherano who gave it straight to Lionel Messi. The little magician dribble passed Isco and went to the wings, but later he cut inside and went on nutmegging Toni Kroos.
It was one of the most famous nutmegs of that season as well. Barcelona won the La Liga that season with 91 points out of 38 games. Madrid was close as they managed to grab 90 points and Atletico Madrid 88.
