Barcelona found a new way to wow football fans on Sunday night with a memorable penalty routine against Celta Vigo. Rather than shoot, Lionel Messi passed his spot-kick forward, allowing team-mate Luis Suarez to run on and convert and complete his hat-trick.
It was a breathtaking piece of play from Luis Enrique’s side, with even the coach not appearing to have been in on the idea. The goal is sure to be played for years to come and goes down as one of the sport’s most memorable penalties.
However, it is not the first of its kind.
