Video: Messi pulls off genius assist from free-kick against Celta Vigo

Lionel Messi caught Celta Vigo players by complete surprise after delivering a sensational assist to Luis Suarez from a free-kick.

Barcelona travelled to the Municipal de Balaidos on Saturday for their La Liga clash and the Spanish side took the lead early in the first half.

And Messi stepped over the ball from about 22 yards out as Celta Vigo stationed two of their players on the line to deny the Barcelona captain.

However, the 33-year-old Argentine superstar fooled the opposition players by curling in a cross to Suarez, who slammed his headed effort past Ruben Blanco.
