Sometimes it takes a little bit of theatrics to get the blood pumping, and for goal-shy forward Lionel Messi (... we know!), an audacious little chip over the 'keeper might just do the trick.
The Paris Saint-Germain star forward made quick work of a spill in the backline by Sven Botman to pounce on the loose ball, before sailing his deft touch over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.
It's just Messi's second goal in Ligue1 since he joined Le Parisiens out of FC Barcelona, but one he'll certainly relish; the 34-year-old Argentine has otherwise been involved in 7 goals and 6 assists in his last 16 matches for PSG, but has gone since November 20 vs. FC Nantes before he added a second goal to his league tally.
