Barca have had a lot of good possession tonight but they couldn’t quite find a way through, so it’s no surprise that they’ve had to resort to an old plan – just give Messi the ball.
It’s still a long way back for Barca as they need three more on the night to force extra time, but they have a foothold now after an absolute screamer from Messi:
Wow, what a hit from Lionel Messi! ?
He smashes an absolute missile into the back of the net from 25 yards out!

It’s hit so powerfully that Navas can’t really figure out what’s going on until the ball smacks the net, and it looks like it could be game on.
