Messi's audacious penalty kick caps highlight-reel buildup

Relive the best play of the game against Villarreal, which ended with Messi scoring a Panenka penalty kick following a highlight-packed buildup

Barça demonstrated on Saturday against Villarreal that they are an impressive team, both individually and collectively. The move that led to Barça’s fourth and final goal of the night exemplified this.

The play started with defender Samuel Umtiti bringing the ball out from behind on the left side of the pitch. Andrés Iniesta was prominent in the build-up, Messi slalomed through a couple of challenges, and Neymar Jr produced a stunning dribble which left the fans in awe before he passed to Luis Suárez. The Uruguayan had a shot on goal which was stopped by Jaume Costa's arm, and Leo Messi stepped up to cap a fantastic team performance with an audacious Panenka finish from the penalty spot.
