Barcelona Lionel Messi scores gorgeous goal against Celta Vigo

There are solo goals, and then there are solo goals. Lionel Messi spun pretty much the entire Celta Vigo defense to pull off a gorgeous solo goal on Saturday.

It was absolutely spectacular.

There are so many cliches that come to mind it’s difficult to pick just one. I’ll settle for “like a hot knife through butter,” though. Messi collects the ball around the center circle in the Celta Vigo half, then make a darting run to put Celta Vigo’s defense in the blender.

He didn’t even bother to take the ball into the Celta Vigo box, he just ripped a left-footed shot from outside of it to finish the move. It was vintage Messi, and it was breathtaking.Shortly after, Neymar scored

Shortly after, Neymar scored a beauty of his own about five minutes from half time. If Barcelona are going to defend their La Liga title, they’ll have to keep pace with Real Madrid. The Merengues won their early match, and Messi and Neymar certainly got Barcelona off on the right (or left) foot against Celta Vigo.
