Season after season, Leo Messi provides us with no end of footballing delights, and 2016/217 was no exception. His penetrating runs through the heart of opposing defences are always a delight to behold – and it doesn’t seem to matter a hoot to the Argentinian superstar how many men he needs to beat on the way.

With the skill and speed that only the greatest player the game has ever known is capable of producing, some rival defences can think of no better solution than to bring Messi down with a foul.

Sit back and relax, because this video features our selection of the very best of the Barça number ten last season – a season in which he surpassed the staggering tally of 500 goals in a Barcelona shirt and added the Spanish Super Cup and the Copa del Rey to an honours list that now stretches to thirty major trophies – a figure only matched by Andrés Iniesta.
