‘Good lord’: Fans go mad for Sergio Busquets’ skill as he humiliates two Inter Milan players in quick succession in Barcelona’s Champions League win
- Sergio Busquets produced a stunning piece of skill to humiliate two Inter players
- The Barcelona man flicked the ball over two players’ head in quick succession
- Twitter erupted after witnessing Busquets’ exquisite bit of play on Wednesday
- One social media user even claimed he is the ‘most underrated player in football’
- Rafinha and Jordi Alba scored as Barcelona beat Inter 2-0 in Champions League
Sergio Busquets is not known for his silky skills but more for his eye for a pass and ability on the ball.
The Spaniard is a master of retaining possession, always playing on the pivot and spraying the ball out in any direction he chooses with pinpoint accuracy, almost like a quarter-back.
But on Wednesday evening two Inter Milan players found out the hard way that there is more to his game than meets the eye.

Sergio Busquets produced a jaw-dropping piece of skill against Inter Milan on Wednesday
The midfielder received the ball under pressure in the middle of the pitch in the second half
But manages to flick the bouncing ball over one of Inter Milan’s midfielder to keep the ball
As Busquets received the ball in the middle of the park in the second half of Barcelona’s Champions League game with Inter, he was immediately confronted by two opposing players.
The ball was bouncing out of control but with poise and elegance, Busquets flicked it over the head of one of the players before repeating the trick on the next one to create some space and lay off a simple pass to a team-mate.
He done it with a certain kind of nonchalance and arrogance as if it was something he could do in his sleep.
The Spaniard then repeats the trick by turning and volleying it back over his head
The second Inter player is also fooled by the piece of skill and is left humiliated by Busquets
The Barcelona midfielder then calmly lays off a pass to one of his team-mates
Social media users did not mirror his coolness about the situation and went crazy after witnessing the piece of skill.
One user simply wrote: ‘Good lord.’ Another one added: ‘[He is the] most under rated player in world football.’
That is some praise, but it was a moment of magic from the midfielder, who got the crowd off their feet in Lionel Messi’s absence.
The Argentinean played no part in this match and is set for three weeks on the sidelines after fracturing a bone in his right arm last weekend.
Ernesto Valverde’s men proved on Wednesday that they are not a one-man team, though, with Rafinha and Jordi Alba scoring the goals in a 2-0 win over Inter.
The victory means Barca are now top of Group B in the Champions League and could seal qualification to the knockout rounds by claiming three points in the return game against Inter next month.
Rafinha – who spent part of last season on loan at Inter – scored the first in a 2-0 win for Barca
Jordi Alba added a second late on with a well-taken finish to secure the three points
