Lionel Messi freekick goal vs Liverpool: Watch Messi score incredible freekick to win it 3-0 for Barca at the Nou Camp
Lionel Messi seemed in ominous form tonight, dribbling past defenders and making things happen against Liverpool at the Nou Camp.
However, he wasn’t able to get the break through in the first half, with Barca going into the half time only with 1 -0 lead, thanks to that wonderful poacher’s goal by Luis Suarez.
The second half was all about Liverpool, knocking on the Barcelona door constantly, forcing Ter Stegen to make 3 saves in 15 minutes and keeping Barcelona in their own half.
However, the first real counter attacking chance that Barcelona got, both Suarez and Messi pounced on it, driving forward and getting that elusive goal for Barcelona.
Suarez hit the crossbar with his shot, which fell into Messi’s feet, who just had to tuck it into the goal. Liverpool would have still been hopeful of getting an away goal, to keep the fixture alive. But, Messi stepped up to take a freekick and majestically put it into the back of the net from close to 25 yards out.
The kind of bend that was on that ball; no keeper in the world could have saved it. Jurgen Klopp sported a smile on his face after that freekick and Messi and the Nou Camp went absolutely berserk.

Barcelona now lead 3-0 in the fixture and would take that handy lead to Anfield, something that should be impossible for Liverpool to turn around. However, we have seen funnier things happen in Football and hence you can’t really rule out a famous Liverpool comeback. But for the time being, it is Messi’s night to enjoy.
