Watch Lionel Messi score incredible solo goal as Barcelona star somehow beats FIVE Napoli defenders to roll back years

LIONEL MESSI rolled back the years to score an incredible solo goal as Barcelona beat Napoli in the Champions League.

The Argentine maestro somehow kept the ball – and his balance – to keep FIVE defenders at bay before bending a brilliant strike into the far corner.

Lionel Messi just never fails to amaze 🤩

It was vintage Messi, dribbling around bamboozled markers in close quarters before hitting an unstoppable shot.

After a 1-1 first-leg draw, Clement Lenglet opened the scoring after just ten minutes to give Barca the lead.

Messi’s goal put Quique Setien’s men in control of the second leg before a penalty in first-half injury time from Luis Suarez appeared to settle the tie.

However, Napoli were given a small glint of hope in the fifth minute of first-half stoppage time, with Lorenzo Insigne scoring a penalty of his own.

But the Catalan giants held on to secure a 3-1 win at the Nou Camp.

The result meant Setien’s side won 4-2 on aggregate to secure their spot in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The former Real Betis manager desperately needs a good run in Europe with pressure on his position mounting and his skipper came up trumps tonight.

The Blaugrana will now face Bayern Munich for a spot in the last four.
