The Champions League returned on Tuesday as the group stage began, and can you guess who scored the opener for Barcelona?

Lionel Messi found the net before the match against Celtic was even three minutes old, rocketing home a shot from a tough angle. Take a look at this goal.

That’s a flying start to the competition for one of the favorites. It was going to be hard to place that one home, so the Argentine went with the smart move of blasting it and hoping for the best. And it worked out for him, as it so often does. Fine goal.
