Joe Hart and Lionel Messi go against one-on-one during Barca’s 1-2 win over Manchester City

Lionel Messi was in his full flow as a playmaker against Manchester City as he led Barcelona side to a 1-2 win with two goals from Luis Suarez, despite failing to grab a goal for himself.

However, arguably the best moment of the match came in the final 10 minutes of the match when the Argentinean was seen sneaking up on Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart behind his back, definitely looking to win it from the English goalkeeper.

English goalkeepers have a notorious record of losing out on possession in their own box. I feel like quoting Liam Neeson’s version of Ra’s Al-Ghul here – “they never learned to mind your surroundings!”

Too bad Messi was in the brightest of Barca's yellow-strip as Hart was smart enough to realize that Messi was standing right behind him.
