Skills! Lionel Messi & Dani Alves’ brilliant long keepy-uppies before the PSG match

Dani Alves’ exquisite outside of the boot assist for Lionel Messi’s goal in Paris wasn’t the only time the Brazilian and Argentine expertly combined on Tuesday night.

Prior to kick off in the Champions League quarterfinal between PSG and Barcelona, fan cam footage recorded a stunning game of keepy-uppies between the Catalans right-back and star forward.

Standing more than 30 yards apart, Alves and Messi got into their respective grooves by fizzing long passes at each other. Impressively, both players were able to keep the ball off the ground throughout their series of 1-2s as it looked like the ball was magnetised to their feet.
