Leo Messi magic to finally break down Bayern Munich in their thrilling Champions League semi-final first leg.
The Argentine magician scored two stunning goals in a matter of minutes to break Pep Guardiola and Bayern Munich hearts.
His first was a brilliant strike from outside the box which bamboozled Manuel Neuer at his near post.
Messi’s second was pure magic, leaving Jerome Boateng in a heap before cooly lobbing the German goalkeeper with a right footed lob.
Neymar added a third for good measure in stoppage time but Leo Messi was the talk of the town on social media.
Twitter went Leo Messi crazy and we’ve collated some of the best tweets below.
Watch it in slow motion and you can see the exact moment when Messi reaches over and takes Boateng’s batteries out.
