Even Lionel Messi wasn’t enough to achieve a spectacular volley finish in the 8th minute when Barcelona’s Riga played against Huesca on Sunday night.
Ousmane Dembele returned the ball to Jordi Alba after throwing in to the left side. While waiting for him to float the crossover on the far post, the looting star broke through his man before showing his quality.
Messi was dangerously unmarked and left the best ever in the time and space to try a bold karate kick. When Messi hit the ball farther than it received it, it proved to be a fraudulent effort.
In the 26th minute, Messi made up for the cheerful moment with a pinpoint assist from the elected Frenkie de Jong following a spectacular move from the midfield.

After this, there is one seemingly obvious thing. It is possible that Messi was injured to see the Karate Kid and ran out of his spells during the festival.
