Jordi Alba provided two more assist for Lionel Messi as Barcelona beat Celta Vigo 5-0 in the Copa del Rey on Thursday.

Alba has now created seven goals for Messi this season, while Messi returned the favour by setting up the left-back for Barça's third goal against Celta. 

"Messi is the best player in history and the best in the world by a difference," Alba told GOL after the game. 

"It’s a luxury to have him here. All Barça fans should enjoy him, as I think they are doing. He’s been here for 12 years playing at a spectacular level and this year he’s been even more incredible.

"It’s incredible how he reads the game. We always look for each other and we were both able to get on the score sheet today. I hope that our connection continues like this forever!"
