Lionel Messi’s amazingly quick shot got FC Barcelona got off to a great start against AC Milan in the second leg of the Round of 16 of Champions League Tuesday evening.
After gaining possession at the edge of the box, Messi deftly maneuvered through a crowd of five Milan white shirts and buried a shot in the top corner for his first goal five minutes in.
Messi’s second goal, a low shot off a move following a pass from Andres Iniesta, put Barcelona up, 2-0, at halftime, and even on aggregate.
Holy quick feet Batman. Messi has scored so many amazing goals, but that one was a a "Wait, what, he shot it already?" goal. Wow—
