Messi’s Adorable Son Thiago Steals The Show During Barcelona’s Champions League Match

Barcelona hosting Inter Milan at the Camp Nou was supposed to be one of the most anticipated clashes of the Champions League group stage. But that was before Lionel Messi suffered an arm injury on Saturday and was ruled out with a fractured arm.

So Messi watched the game from the stands on Wednesday, with cameras watching his every reaction to the action on the pitch. 

But more entertaining than the Barça-Inter match was Messi's son Thiago, who was seated next to the Argentine legend, enjoying the match with dear old dad.

Here’s Messi and his son celebrating Barcelona’s first goal.

Barcelona’s first goal came from the man who replaced Messi in the lineup: Rafinha. The right winger missed a chance to put the Blaugrana up with a beautiful goal when a Luis Suarez back heel set him up in the middle of the goal.

But Suarez found Rafinha a second time with another brilliant pass and this time the Brazilian made sure to finish.

Seriously, that pass.

Jordi Alba put the game away with a nice finish in the 83rd minute.

But enough of the boring soccer. More Thiago please.

Messi, however, committed a cardinal sin of sports fandom: He left early. Shame, and we thought he'd teach his son well.
