Lionel Messi leaves 2 defenders on the ground, sets up Argentina goal with masterful run

In a move that was reminiscent of the famous Champions League semifinal run that left Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng on the ground, Lionel Messi embarrassed two Paraguay defenders in a 6-1 win at the Copa America.

Up 3-1 in the second half, Messi won the ball near midfield and beat one Paraguay defender. With another Paraguay defender on his hip and a third defender coming toward him, Messi juked to his left, the defenders ran into each other, and Argentina had a wide open goal.
