Not to be outdone by Luis Suarez’ terrific goal for Barcelona against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, Lionel Messi produced a brilliant strike from outside of the box for what is his best goal so far in 2017.
Messi produced this lovely bit of skill, firing home his team’s second to make it 2-0 with a little kiss off the post in the 33rd minute of the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinal. Take a look.
That was something. Curving outwards, it looked like it would go wide, and Miguel Moya was left with no chance. His best goal of 2017, and one of his best the entire season.
