One of the undoubted highlights of Barcelona’s progression to the semi-finals of the Champions League in their 1-1 second leg draw with PSG, was the Andres Iniesta turn that could so nearly have won the match late on.
PSG defenders Christophe Jallet and Alex were left flummoxed by the Iniesta Spin Turn and the planet was willing on the little Barcelona playmaker to finish with his left foot.
As many have commented, from a difficult angle, Andres Iniesta hit a woeful effort into the side netting but it was still a moment that was still pretty special.
Below is a round-up of the best pictures, video, GIF and Tweets on Andres Iniesta’s wonder turn v PSG. The third video below is a selection of Iniesta’s previous best turns and dummies.
That Iniesta spin move. Couldn’t pull that off on FIFA.

The Iniesta 180-degree turn from last night is worth watching over and over again. What’s football without moments like that?

Iniesta’s turn against PSG today made me feel like I’ve never played soccer before. #puretechnique

20 years from now we will call that turn with the outside of the foot “the Iniesta”.Brilliant move.

Think that will be taped and taught to young players as “the Iniesta turn”.
