Barcelona have posted a video of a 17-year-old Lionel Messi absolutely destroying Juventus in a friendly back in 2005.
The match - which will be replayed almost ten years later in the Champions League final on June 6 - was the first time fans really met the future four-time Ballon d'Or winner.
He came on as a sub wearing squad number 30, as his now-famous number 10 shirt was Ronaldinho's at the time.
In the clip you can see Messi completing a string of trademark mazy runs before cutting the Old Lady's defence in two with a killer through-ball for a young Andres Iniesta to slot home.
The match was part of the Joan Gamper Trophy, a tournament Barca host at the Nou Camp every year in honour of their club founder.
Juve eventually won 4-2 on penalties.
