Many Barcelona players have linked up with Lionel Messi during the past few years, but not many of them were able to take that relationship to a great height like Spanish International Jordi Alba

Although the duo have always shared a remarkable connection on the pitch ever since they started lining up together in the Blaugrana team, it was the departure of Neymar Jr. during the summer of 2017 that actually took their relationship to a greater height.

Their linkup came to the fore last season when they were seen constantly combining to wreak havoc on opposition defences.

Jordi Alba's pace, Lionel Messi's intelligence, their incredible vision, and decent passing abilities enabled them to quickly establish a telepathic connection between each other and that is still active this season, with the duo having combined to run riot multiple times during the current campaign.
