WATCH: Leo Messi’s perfect free kick rescues point for Barcelona

The man, the myth, the legend.

On what looked like an awful day for Barcelona, Lionel Messi has turned things around with one brilliant free kick.

In the 90th minute, while down 1-0 away to Villarreal, Messi stepped up and curled in a fantastic free kick to bring the match level and save Barca from a bad defeat to open the second half of the La Liga season.

With a chance to tie the game late, Neymar and Messi stood over the all-important free kick right at the top of the penalty area. There was only one man to take it as Messi did what Messi does and scored a hugely clutch goal.

It hasn’t been a good team performance, but Messi came through when it matter most to earn the club a big point away from home.
