Lionel Messi looked in sublime form as he scored two goals in Barcelona's 3-0 opening win in La Liga at the weekend, but few things show quite how masterful he is at his best than this slowed-down clip.

The camera focuses on Messi as he shows incredible control and movement to ghost through for a chance on goal.

Opponents Elche were comfortably beaten at the Camp Nou—they will not be the only ones to suffer that fate if Messi is in this kind of mood.
