Watch: Neymar feeds Messi for Champions League goal at Celtic

Scott Heppell

Neymar and Lionel Messi have combined yet again for another beautiful Barcelona goal.

With Barcelona playing in the Champions League group stage at Celtic, the South American stars worked together to give the favored side the early lead. Barcelona worked the ball around the penalty area before Neymar delivered a delicate chip into the box. Messi ran onto it and hit a perfect left-footed shot by Craig Gordon with a first time effort, tucking it inside the left post. 

It marked the sixth time this season that Neymar has assisted Messi on a goal and it was Neymar's seventh assist of this Champions League campaign. For Messi, the goal was his eighth in the competition, leading all players.

Messi was denied an assist of his own later in the first half when Gordon made a sensational diving save to deny Luis Suarez on a point-blank header.

Barcelona, which entered they day leading Manchester City atop Group C by two points, would cement its place in the knockout stage with a victory.
