If you haven’t been living under a rock, you probably watched Lionel Messi and Dani Alves playing keepy-uppy before Barcelona’s Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain at Parc de Princes by now.

Proving that they also possess world class abilities - after all, Ajax did play in the Champions League this season - starlets Christian Eriksen and Siem de Jong showed off their keepy-uppy skills during a club training session midweek. Even more impressive, forward Kolbeinn Sigþórsson got into the mix and added a “special ingredient” to the long range session.

Talk about some serious skills, let’s hope that this trend continues unlike others, errr, Gangnam Style, errr, the Harlem Shake.

PSG and Barcelona fought out a 2-2 draw in their first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals, with the Parisians leveling it up on the very last shot of the game — quite dramatic of them.

Earlier, however, we saw the goal of the day courtesy of Lionel Messi and an absolute beauty of a pass by Dani Alves. Check out Alves’ ridiculous outside-of-the-boot pass and Messi’s sweet strike to finish it off.

Unfortunately for Messi and Barcelona, the greatest in the world went on to miss the second half due to a hamstring injury — ouch. Read more on that right here.
