Lionel Messi is not only one of the greatest players and goalscorers in the history of the game, he is also arguably the greatest playmaker football has ever witnessed and this is evident by the high number of assists and chances he creates for teammates.

On his day, Lionel Messi has the key to unlock any defense, possessing the innate ability to find teammates in the tightest of spaces with pin-point deliveries and Barcelona have undoubtedly been the better off for having him within their ranks for the last 15 years.
