(Video) – Matip with insane last-ditch tackle to completely rob Messi

Posted by

Joël Matip absolutely denied Lionel Messi with a hugely impressive and composed challenge after the latter looked surely through on goal.

It was a ball over the top and Messi was eventually fed the ball in the box, Matip, out of nowhere, pulled off a last-ditch tackle to nick the ball off the Argentine’s toes.

It was a valiant, finessed challenge on the world’s best player and Matip came out well on top.

We’ll need a mountain of tackles like that to keep Barça out tonight, but on the face of it Matip looks like he’s up to the task.
