It was only a goalkeeping masterclass from Manuel Neuer that stopped the Catalan club from going ahead in the first-half, and social media users were suitably impressed by the German.

It is not the first time that the 29-year-old has shown his ability on the big stage, and he has become well known for his amazing shot stopping ability. Neuer was the first goalkeeper to be named in the Ballon d’Or top three since Gianluigi Buffon in 2006 this year, and it looks like he may have another chance of getting involved next time round.

Not only this but he has revolutionised what it means to be a goalie with his willingness to run out from his area. Can the World Cup winner keep it up?
