Barcelona captain Lionel Messi delivered an exhilarating performance against Getafe as a compilation highlighted why he is the ‘most in-form player in 2021.’

With a thunderous shot from the edge of the area in the first five minutes at the Camp Nou, the 33-year-old Argentine powerhouse came close to winning.

Messi’s shot, however, smashed off the bar and rolled off the line, denying him an impressive opener.

However, Messi would score only minutes later after Sergio Busquets picked him out with an inch-perfect throw.

Messi has scored 23 goals and registered 8 assists in 2021.

Out of this world.

Getafe pulled a goal back after Clement Lenglet put the ball into his own net, but Barcelona would reclaim their lead before halftime.

Sofian Chakla’s nightmare came to an end when he managed to poke the ball past David Soria after the Getafe goalkeeper charged off his post.

After his initial shot was tipped into the inside of the post, Messi took Barcelona up 3-1 minutes later by beating Soria from an incredibly close angle at his near post.
