Watch the video of Lionel Messi finding the top right-hand corner with a peach finish and give no chance to the goalkeeper.
Sevilla and Barcelona went head-to-head once again this season and it produced an exhilarating contest with Ernesto Valverde’s side coming out on top to secure three points at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.
Jesus Navas, the Captain of Sevilla opened the scoring in the first half and the equalizer came through Lionel Messi who struck the ball brilliantly to scored a volley goal four minutes later. Just when both the sides were settling for a draw to the half-time, Gabriel Mercado made full use of the space in Barcelona’s defence to lead the game.
When the Blaugrana looked rusty, they had a situation when Ousmane Dembele passed the ball to Lionel Messi. The Argentine, taking full use of the situation shifted the ball to his right leg to find the top right-hand corner with a peach finish which gave no chance for Tomas Vaclik. During the dying minutes of the game, Messi rounded off a hat-trick before Luis Suarez netted once in the injury time to win the game 4-2.
Watch the second goal of Lionel Messi. Showcases his weaker foot quality with sheer precision.
