Stunning video of Lionel Messi's refusal to mark an opponent in Barcelona's Champions League win over Dynamo Kiev has emerged in which the Argentine allowed the player to move past him.

Spanish giants Barcelona continued with their impressive performance in the Champions League this term on Wednesday night, November 4, as they defeated Dynamo Kiev 2-1.

Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique scored the two goals for Barcelona, while Viktor Tsigankov netted the only goal for Dynamo Kiev at the Camp Nou.

However, Barcelona would have their goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen to thank for his superb saves which prevented Dynamo Kiev from getting the equaliser at the death.

But before the end of the encounter, Oleksandr Andriyevskyi picked the ball from the midfield and was attacking Barcelona, and surprisingly, he moved past Lionel Messi who did not challenge him.

Oleksandr Andriyevskyi went on to fire a direct shot towards goal before being denied by Barcelona goalkeeper as the Catalans got the maximum points.

The video of Lionel Messi refusing to challenge for the ball has now gone viral with many fans suggesting that the Argentine might be tired in the match.

Messi almost left Barcelona before the start of the ongoing season after being linked with a big move to Premier League side Manchester City.

During all these 10 encounters, Petr Cech was the goalkeeper Chelsea used against Barcelona as he stopped Lionel Messi from finding the back of the net.

However, Lionel Messi finally scored against Petr Cech, but it was when the 38-year-old was playing for Premier League side Arsenal.

Cech left Arsenal last two seasons after the Gunners' defeat against Chelsea in the Europa League final in which Eden Hazard scored a brace in that duel.
