Lionel Messi’s Best Chip Shots

249 0
The chip or lob has become Lionel Messi’s signature shot. Time and time again he suckers the keeper into coming out a little bit and then scoops the ball up and over them as they rush upon him. Messi almost does it in a teasing way too, as though he’s bored or it’s just a kick around in the park and he’s having a laugh. Take a look at the genius at work. Chipping the ball over the keeper is becoming one of Messi’s favorite things to do on the soccer pitch.

Leo Messi, Goal of the Season Champions League 2014/15

Leo Messi’s brilliant second goal against Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final was just one of many occasions when the Argentinian has stunned the world. An online vote by users of the official UEFA website has named the work of art, in which he leaves Boateng on the floor before cheekily chipping Bayern keeper Neuer, the best of the 20014/15 edition of the tournament.

Messi’s goal beat nine other candidates, including one against PSG scored by his Barça colleague Neymar Jr. And there was a double reason to celebrate, because Marc-André ter Stegen is also to be honored for the best save of the 2014/15 Champions League. Leo Messi finished as one of the three joint top goal scorers in last season’s Champions League, tied on ten goals with Neymar Jr and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
