Six-year-old painting of Messi became reality against Real Betis

There were many jaw-dropping aspects to Lionel Messi's Sunday night performance away at Real Betis, but one of the most amazing storylines is the fact that his dazzling performance was partly predicted in art.

A painting from six years ago depicted the Argentine running away from several players wearing Real Betis' green and white colours.

One of the photos taken of a Messi dribble on Sunday night is so similar that it's almost scary.

Not only is the No.10 dribbling away from some defenders, but one is in a similar position on the ground and another similarly has his hand on the forward's back.

"I painted something six years ago and footballing gods made the image come true last night," Suhas Nahian wrote on Monday.
