(Video) Lionel Messi almost scored one of the best goals of his career but instead set up Luis Suarez

Lionel Messi almost scored one of his best ever goals for Barcelona yesterday evening, but instead set up Luis Suarez for a simply tap-in.

Messi has scored plenty of incredible goals during his career, but this one would have been right up there – had he not been denied by the goalkeeper.

The Argentine nut-megged one defender and jinked his way past three more, but his shot was too central in the goal. Thankfully for Barca, Luis Suarez was there to follow up and fire home the rebound.
