We knew this was going to happen sooner or later. Lionel Messi and Ivan Rakitic teamed up for Barcelona’s first goal against Manchester City and put City on the way out of the Champions League as they must score two goals to go to extra time and three to win.
Lionel Messi’s assist was simply filthy and Ivan Rakitic sealed the deal with hardly any pressure. The calmness from these two players, it was like they were on the training ground warming up for morning practice. Just scoring in the Champions League against the English champions, not a big deal.
