The evening got even better for the forward a couple of minutes later, as Alba once again found space down the left and teed up Messi, who finished routinely.

"It's a luxury to have him here. He's been here for 12 years playing at a spectacular level and this year he's been even more incredible".

"We hope he will continue having them and that the fans will enjoy it". "Messi also creates goals for Alba".

"It's incredible how [Messi] reads the game, especially for me", Alba added.

Barely two minutes later, Messi had his second from yet another Alba assist, the Argentine placing a low shot into the same corner of Sergio's net after Barca's full-back picked him out near the penalty spot.

Speaking about the game, Valverde said, "The tie is slightly in our favour because of the away goal, but only slightly because Celta always score away from home".

"We are seeing a lot of them this season, but it makes sense because there is no winger on the left anymore and there is room for [Alba] to surprise from deep". Making the last eight will take some of the pressure off new coach Vincenzo Montella following Sevilla's painful 5-3 home loss to crosstown rival Real Betis in his Spanish league debut on Saturday.

With Celta Vigo in such good form and looking to go three games unbeaten against Barcelona, Real Madrid and Barcelona again, this is one you don't want to miss.

With the tie effectively at an end, Ernesto Valverde took the chance to give Messi some rest, replacing his number 10 with Ousmane Dembele just before the hour mark to deafening applause from Camp Nou. "We are all suffering from the derby loss", Correa said.
