Watch Lionel Messi score incredible solo goal as Barcelona star somehow beats FIVE Napoli defenders to roll back years
LIONEL MESSI rolled back the years to score an incredible solo goal as Barcelona beat Napoli in the Champions League.
The Barcelona maestro somehow kept the ball – and his balance – to keep FIVE defenders at bay before bending a brilliant strike into the far corner.
It was vintage Messi, dribbling around bamboozled markers in close quarters before hitting an unstoppable shot.
The goal put Barcelona in the driving seat in their European clash against the Serie A side.
After a 1-1 first-leg draw, Clement Lenglet opened the scoring after just ten minutes to put Barca in the lead.
Messi's goal then had Quique Setien's men cruising before a penalty in first-half injury time from Luis Suarez appeared to settle the tie.
However, Napoli were given a small glint of hope in the fifth minute of first-half stoppage time, Lorenzo Insigne scoring a penalty of his own.
But the Catalan giants held on to secure a 3-1 win at the Nou Camp.
Setien's side won 4-2 on aggregate to secure their spot in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The former Real Betis manager desperately needs a good run in Europe with pressure on his position mounting and his skipper came up trumps tonight.
The Blaugrana will now face Bayern Munich for a spot in the last four.
