Lionel Messi is not only topping the charts for goals and assists this season, he’s also the top scorer when it comes to free kicks.

The Argentine fired one into the top corner to open the scoring for Barcelona against Las Palmas on Thursday, that’s his fourth of the season, more than anyone else in Europe.

Messi’s goal was also his first at Las Palmas, which means he has now scored at 36 different La Liga goals.

Messi’s free kick have been brilliant this season, let’s hope for a few more between now and the end of the campaign.
