We are not worthy of seeing Lionel Messi play football every week.
The Argentine wizard proved once again that La Liga is full of mere mortals and he is operating on a different planet.
Barcelona enjoyed their Sunday visit to Real Betis, smashing their hosts 5-0 thanks to two goals each from Messi and Luis Suarez and Ivan Rakitic chipping in with one.
The Nou Camp side maintained their 11-point lead at the top of the table and moved their goals for tally to 57 in 20 games.
But there was a moment in the game that saw time come to a stop as Messi bamboozled half the Real Betis team with an amazing slaloming dribble.
This was liquid football gentleman.
Messi receives the ball just outside his own area, facing his goal with two Betis players pressing.
A double jink left Andres Guardado with bendy ankles.
Another Betis man comes in to try and hack the GOAT before the next 10 yards turn into a gauntlet of flying tackles only finding thin air.
With a dip of his left shoulder within milliseconds Messi is suddenly freed from any attention and bursting into an open midfield with barely a defender in sight.
To top it off he slips out of the Betis straight jacket with a nutmeg.
Even the Betis fans couldn’t help but applaud Messi desite him just having embarrassed half their team.
There were three distinct attempts through different styles to get the ball of Barcelona’s genius but he slipped away from all of them barely breaking his stride.
The numbers from this game and Messi’s season show that even as he creeps past 30 there is not another footballer on the planet that can do what he does on the pitch.
During the game Lionel completed 12 dribbles, which was the most in a single match in the past three seasons.
Two more goals and another assist means Messi is now first in La Liga for goals scored with 19, first for assists with nine, first in dribbles per game, second in key passes, has the most man of the match performances with 15 and the best overall rating from WhoScored.com.
Do I need to continue?
