Lionel Messi has scored an absolute laser beam of a strike to put Barcelona 2-0 up over Atletico Madrid in the first away leg of the Copa del Rey semifinal. Many expected this to be a tight tie, but so far Barcelona are cruising.
Most of Messi’s goals are nice finishes, free kicks or curling shots. It’s rare that you see him absolutely unload on a shot with full power. This time he did and it was a dream strike off the post and in. What a goal by the master.
