Maradona passed away at the age of 60 last Wednesday, after suffering a heart attack at his home in Buenos Aires.
Both teams observed a minute’s applause for the two-time World Cup winner, during which Messi looked close to tears.
After doing so,
he briefly celebrated with his teammates before taking off his Barcelona shirt and revealing a Newell’s Old Boys jersey underneath.
The kit was the same one worn by Maradona during his brief stint at the club in the 1993/94 season, with Messi having played for a short time as a kid at Newell’s before moving to Barcelona.
