The moment of joy and happiness doubles your performance in your professional life. We witnessed that joy and happiness in Messi’s performance against Chelsea at Camp Nou in second-leg of Uefa Champions League last 16 match.

Messi became the proud father for the third time last week on Saturday as he welcomed his third son “Ciro” to his family. To celebrate his third son birth, Messi took the leap away from football on Sunday and he missed the game against Malaga.
He came strongly against Chelsea last night as he looked refreshed and scored his fastest goal of his career. Barcelona no.10 never scored a goal within first three minutes of time for his club and country and it happened on Wednesday against Chelsea.
Messi scored from a tight angle to beat Thibaut Courtois between his legs and gave Barcelona 1-0 lead at Camp Nou in first three minutes. Then he produces a stunning pass to find Ousmane Dembele on the right and Frenchman scored a stunner in 19th minute.
It was already the game over for visitors, but Messi’s magic wasn’t over at Camp Nou. Courtois was beaten last time by Messi on the right but this time Messi gave him a lesson doing the same from left. Messi shines in the dual battle as he forced Courtois to guard the side net and he simply played the ball between his legs.
It was an embarrassing night for the Chelsea goalkeeper, but he shouldn’t be ashamed of himself. It was Messi’s night as he played his first game after becoming proud father for the third time. Messi shared the twin joy of becoming proud father for the third time and scoring 100 goals in Uefa Champions League competition. Barcelona reaches to the quarterfinal with 4-1 aggregate victory joining Bayern Munich, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Real Madrid, AS Roma and Sevilla.
