Barcelona welcomed Manchester United for the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal at the Camp Nou with a 1-0 lead in hand. And riding on Lionel Messi’s brace, they stormed into the last four.
While a trademark Messi goal was enough to send Barcelona ahead on the night, it was a howler from United shot-stopper David de Gea which gifted Messi his second of the match. The right-footed shot from the Argentine talisman wasn’t expected to even test De Gea. However, the Spaniard allowed the ball to pass from between his legs and further dampen his side’s chances on the night.
Here’s the video of Messi’s second goal.
