Lionel Messi is alright at the soccer. I think he might make a career out of it.
In the 63rd minute, Messi reached the 100-goal mark by making a play out of nothing, then finishing it off with a nutmeg of Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois. It was a perfect example of how dangerous Messi is at all times.

Barcelona beat Chelsea 4-1 on aggregate to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals.
