Watch: Dembele Sets Barca On Their Way With Two Brazen Chips

Ousmane Dembele has been on fire in the second leg of Barcelona's Copa Del Rey tie with Levante.

The French forward has grabbed two goals in the space of two minutes on the half hour mark, both remarkable goals in their own right, and weirdly similar in their execution.

The first came after the forward was played in by Lionel Messi. Dembele found himself in the middle of the goal, and seemed to try and tease the goalkeeper with his chip:

His second strike of the night came from another chip. Again, the forward was set free by Messi and rounded the keeper. It looked like the 21-year-old would simple slot the ball into the empty net, but again he went for a dinked finish, and somehow bamboozled the Levante keeper who could flail as the ball bounced past him:

Not to be outdone my the young upstart, Messi added a third for his side on 52 minutes with a little dink of his own, after being released by Nelson Semedo on the edge of the box:
