Video: Messi’s amazing Maradona-like dribble and goals in Barca win

The Argentinian star scored both of his side’s goals in a 2-0 victory over Eibar yesterday.

Lionel Messi continued his recent run of superb individual form yesterday, putting on a man-of-the-match performance in Barcelona’s 2-0 victory over Eibar in La Liga.

The Argentinian has been in incredible goalscoring form since the turn of the year and added two more to his account here with a diving header and a penalty.

The South American star’s skill and trickery were on show in this unbelievable piece of dribbling, with a cheeky nutmeg also showing his ability.

The run was reminiscent of Messi’s compatriot Diego Maradona at his best, with the Barcelona star sure to make things difficult for Manchester City in the Champions League this week.

The victory also increases the Camp Nou side’s lead at the top of the La Liga table to four points, with Real Madrid taking on Levante today before a much-anticipated El Clasico fixture next weekend.
