Leo Messi has been in spectacular form of late, two goals against Real Madrid and Osasuna and while he was unable to score against Espanyol on Sunday, he still left his mark on the game with a spectacular assist.

The Argentine set off on a run from around the halfway line, taking on a number of Espanyol defenders before laying the ball off to Ivan Rakitic. The Croatian midfielder then calmly slotted past Diego López to put the game to bed. 

With that assist, Leo Messi takes his tally to nine in La Liga, bettered only in this department by teammates Luis Suárez (12) and Neymar Jr (10) and Real Madrid's Toni Kroos (11).

Sit back and enjoy Messi's latest marvellous assist in the above video.
