Barcelona’s Lionel Messi hits brilliant winner against Villarreal, dedicates goal to Tito Vilanova [Vine]
- April 27, 2014
Lionel Messi completed a comeback for Barcelona against Villarreal by hitting the winner in a 3-2 victory and dedicated his goal to Tito Vilanova.
The Argentinian star finished off a wonderful Barcelona move with a clinical volleyed finish before pointing to the sky in tribute to Tito Vilanova, the former Barcelona coach who died on Friday.
Before Vilanova was part of the first team managerial set-up, he mentored the likes of Messi, Gerard Pique and Cesc Fabregas in underage Barcelona sides.
Barcelona came from two goals down to beat Villarreal thanks to two own goals as well as Lionel Messi’s effort and leave themselves with an outside chance of winning La Liga.
