1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Messi, in a deadlock of defenders
unpicks, unlocks, unleashes
a devastating double
that leaves the likes of Houdini and Blane
scratching their heads

inspired by last night’s comeback by Barcelona in the Champions League Last 16.

They were 2-0 down from the first leg to AC Milan, with no away goal and a defence that has been leaking goals lately.

But the mercurial Mr Messi wriggled free of the straight-jacketing defenders within 5 minutes, to set Barcelona up for a stirring match.

Then just before half time, from the same position, surrounded by defenders, he added a second.
And had a hand in their fourth.
