Barcelona fullback Alves: So easy playing with Messi

Barcelona defender Daniel Alves has paid tribute to Lionel Messi.

Messi struck twice in victory at Granada yesterday.

"Playing next to Messi gives you a lot of tranquility. It makes it easier to get things done," said Alves, "the fact that we packed the midfield allowed us to free up a wide defender and I took advantage of the space to go forward."
