There really isn’t any doubt that FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is from another planet. 

The five time World Player of the Year has once again turned heads in the Catalan derby against RCD Espanyol.

Messi played the role of supplier in their 4-1 win, setting up chances for Luis Suarez and Jordi Alba.


The Argentine then scored Barcelona’s fourth and final goal to cap off a humiliating defeat over their neighbourhood rivals.

The Catalan giants sit just three points behind rivals Real Madrid, who have a game in hand after their Club World Cup victory this morning.
