Lionel Messi made all 4 assists on Barcelona goals v Levante, 3 of which were sublime for Tello hat-trick
It’s a shame to have to take the focus off the scorer of a hat-trick, in this case Christian Tello, but that’s what Lionel Messi’s genius does.
Messi made all 4 assists in Barcelona’s 4-1 win over Levante (if you count the ball for Pedro which led to the OG), 3 of which were simply sublime, the 3 which incidentally set up Tello’s hat-trick.
For the first, Messi threaded a sweet Xaviesque through ball from deep for Pedro to run on to, which culminated in a Levante OG; for the second, he slid the ball perfectly into Tello’s path; and the third was the real piece de resistance – a lifted caviar over the Levante defence.
No goals for Messi, but a hat-trick of awesome assists ain’t half bad.
