Lionel Messi makes everything look so simple

Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi, is one of the best players in the world and he really doesn't need to prove it but the club  have released a small Vine video of him scoring an outrageous goal from behind the goal posts. Why? 'Cause Messi. 

The 5-time FIFA Ballon D'Or winner is seen taking a shot from well behind the goal post curving the ball into the net with relative ease. As the balls goes in, the camera pans to him smiling and waving the whole incident off as if it were nothing and that he'd do it any given day. We get it, Leo, you're something else. 

Here's the whole thing. Watch and bask in his magnificence: 

Messi has had better seasons

Messi hasn't enjoyed the best of seasons – on a personal level. Not after what he did last year scoring 43 goals in the Liga alone. This season, he's managed to score 13 goals albeit in 18 appearances.

The Argentine was out for around two months earlier in the season and missed out on a lot of the action with his superstar teammates Luis Suarez and Neymar grabbing the headlines in almost every match. 

The next big challenge for Messi and Barcelona are Premier League giants, Arsenal, who they take on in the Champions League on Tuesday next week. Having faced them five years ago the same time, Barcelona will be confident going into the tie. 

With Messi, Suarez and Neymar wrecking havoc against the best of opponents, it's more a question of whether they'll go all berserk against the Gunners or play it safe and do the damage at home in front of the crowd at the Nou Camp.
