Lionel Messi scored the quickest goal of his career to give Barcelona the advantage in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Chelsea.
Messi slid an angled shot through the legs of visiting goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois after two minutes and eight seconds at Camp Nou to give Ernesto Valverde's men a 2-1 aggregate lead.
None of the 30-year-old Argentina star's 601 career goals for club and country have arrived earlier in a match.

There was more to come from Messi as he laid on Ousmane Dembele's venomous 20th-minute strike to put Barca 2-0 up on the night.
It meant his first two touches inside the Chelsea box had resulted in a goal and an assist.
