Lionel Messi was at his brilliant best yet again on Thursday as Barcelona put in a superb display to thrash Celta Vigo 5-0 in the Copa del Rey.

Messi was in inspirational mood at Camp Nou, scoring twice and then sending in a delicious ball for Jordi Alba to make it 3-0.

Goals from Luis Suarez and Ivan Rakitic followed but it was Messi’s night once again and his recent record in the Copa del Rey is something else.

Messi’s goals also mean he is now in the top 10 Copa del Rey goalscorers of all time with 46 goals in the competition.

He’s got some way to go to top the list, but you certainly wouldn’t put it past the little genuis now would you?
