Lionel Messi Assists Luis Suarez With Sneaky Trick Shot On Penalty Kick (Video)

Lionel Messi could have scored his 300th career league goal Sunday, but he decided to help out his teammate instead.

Barcelona made easy work of Celta Vigo in a 6-1 win at Camp Nou, and Barca’s three stars — Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez — all got on the score sheet.

Suarez finished with a hat trick thanks to Messi, who passed it to Suarez on a sneaky trick shot instead of going for a record goal.

We’re guessing Messi won’t have to wait too long for goal No. 300, so it was nice to see him give his teammate a shot at a memorable day on the pitch.
