Lionel Messi is having himself a day at Eibar. After giving Barcelona the lead from the penalty spot, his second goal from a corner has given Barcelona a nice cushion that allows them to express themselves. It can lead to some absolute poetry at times, and the television crews know it.
This mesmerising run from Messi should be played with romantic music and in black and white, it's cinematic. The brilliant slow-mos at the best bits just add to the artistry.
