Watch the Nou Camp & Barcelona stars hail Lionel Messi after Bayern double [pitch cam video]

Even on Thursday morning it is still hard to fathom just what Lionel Messi pulled off at the Nou Camp on Wednesday night.

On 76 minutes it looked like Barcelona were heading to a first leg goalless draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.

There would have been no shame in that, after all, Bayern are a quality side, packed full of World Cup winners and have stormed the Bundesliga this season.

Then Lionel Messi got involved and scored two goals, before providing a late assist for Neymar.

The second goal from Messi will replayed for many years to come and was simply out of this world.

After the game, the Nou Camp rang out with “Messi” chants and the Barcelona players, as one, came to congratulate the Argentine genius.

Neymar’s reaction says it all. The star of Brazil, and an attacker of extraordinary brilliance himself, simply cannot believe what Messi had done in the preceding 20 minutes.
