Everyone can do a few keepy-uppies, whether it's a couple off the shin or all on one foot, but Barcelona pair Dani Alves and Leo Messi took it to a whole new level during the warm-up for the Paris St Germain match on Tuesday.

The Barca duo treated the Parc des Princes crowd to a real show, playing keepy-up 40 yards apart.

They were pinging the ball about with ease you'd expect from two of the best players in the world, but it's still pretty incredible to watch.

Maybe not the most strenuous warm-up ever, but certainly one of the most impressive.

Barcelona went on to secure two away goals and a 2-2 draw from the trip to France, but it could have been so much better for the La Liga leaders.

Tito Vilanova's side lead 2-1 in stoppage time thanks to a 89th minute Xavi Hernandez penalty, but a last-second strike from Blaise Matuidi pegged them back.

The second leg at the Nou Camp is next week.
