Barcelona were awarded a penalty in the 20th minute of their La Liga clash against Celta Vigo after Junior Firpo’s attempted cross was handled by Joseph Aidoo.
Ernesto Valverde’s side have struggled to assert their dominance in the tie until this moment. Superstar Lionel Messi stepped up to the plate and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way with an ice-cold penalty.
Messi effortlessly rolled the ball into the bottom left corner.
