Fans are convinced Lionel Messi 'meant' his astonishing assist for Neymar in Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 opener against Clermont Foot.

Messi wasted no time influencing the game, incredibly setting up Neymar in the ninth minute of their fixture on Saturday.

Pablo Sarabia played a ball into Messi who delicately flicked the ball behind him with his weaker right foot.

He appeared to guide the ball to his Brazilian teammate who fired home with a low drive.

One tweeted: "The touch - he meant to do it, didn’t he? It’s absolutely incredible, you can tell by the way he’s looking over his shoulder that it’s intentional."

A second wrote: "Messi meant that and no one is telling me otherwise."

A third added: "What an assist."

Messi then scored two late goals including an outrageous bicycle kick goal in his side's 5-0 win.
