Leo Messi dismantles Bayern, makes the Camp Nou explode with tremendous goal

It took him 77 minutes, but when Lionel Messi finally ended Manuel Neuer’s goalkeeping masterclass in the first leg of Barcelona and Bayern Munich’s Champions League semifinal, he set fire to the whole school.

Just three minutes after his opening goal, he did this — turning Jerome Boateng into a pile of dust and chipping Neuer to realize what he couldn’t quite do in the World Cup final last summer. But beyond that simplistic description of events, there are no words to fully capture what Messi did in that moment. Just watch.

    Great line. Life is not bad when you cheer for a club who employs a guy who can put Boateng on the ground with one touch and put it over Manuel F’n Neur with a black magic chip shot with his very next touch. I feel good today.

    Amahzing. There cannot be any words left to describe Messi. My only regret was that we had the lame Fox guys in the US calling the game, not Ray Hudson…though I imagine Ray may have had a heart attack yesterday from Barca’s play and be utterly catatonic today.
