VIDEO: Lionel Messi Scores A Goal That Is “Pure Genius”

Lionel Messi is at it again, scoring sublime goals that cement him as one of the best goal scorers of this generation. This time it was against Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey Final, in which Messi scored two goals to lead Barcelona to a 3-1 win.

Out of his two goals he scored in the game, this one was surely the cream of the crop as Messi dribbled past four Bilbao defenders, just breezing by them making it look effortless. Then, he calmly slotted the ball home for the goal. But no words can do this goal justice, so just sit back and watch Messi do his thing.

Wow. Simply magisterial for a man who has scored many wonderful goals in the past, and he just added one more to his collection today. Words simply cannot describe the grandeur of what Lionel Messi can do and he will surely continue to leave us in awe as he continues his career.

The Barcelona victory secured their second title this season, as they won La Liga championship earlier this month, and they have a chance at the treble next month when they take on Juventus for the Champions League title. Barcelona has now won 27 Copa del Rey crowns, the most out of any team in Spain, with four more than closest rival, Athletic Bilbao.
