The Argentine stole the show in his 700th appearance for the Catalans this week, scoring once and assisting a further two strikes in what was a terrific individual display.

Mats Hummels, who gave the ball away before Messi found the back of the net for Barca's second goal, claimed the 32-year-old is undoubtedly the greatest player he has seen in full swing.

"In top form, Messi is the best footballer I have ever seen – period," he said, according to The National.

"We were not good enough to beat Barcelona today. We only created three or four real chances.

"It was not a bad game, but not a very good one. Barcelona were excellent, though. Messi is always dangerous, of course.

"We had a really bad spell after that first goal, with my bad pass that led to their second goal."
