Suarez and Messi BREAK the internet as Twitter brings back memories of Henry and Pires FAIL

It’s safe to say that Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez delivered a healthy dose of revenge to Celta for dealing them their worst defeat in years earlier this season. With Barcelona safely ahead with a 3-1 lead at the 80′ mark, Messi had a chance at a penalty kick, but instead of simply trying to make the attempt, he and Suarez teamed up for a bit of trickery to catch the Celta goalkeeper off guard and stun Nou Camp with a sensational goal.

The wonderful piece of trickery brought back memories of an ill-fated attempt by Thierry Henry and Robert Pires to do something similar in a famous flop many years ago. The difference was, unlike the two Arsenal legends, Messi and Suarez pulled it off:

The win for Barcelona gave them 30 consecutive games in all competitions without a defeat. The only clubs to beat them in any competition since they won the Champions League are Celta and Athletic Bilbao – both of which came on the road – far away from Nou Camp.
