Leo Messi free-kick v Villarreal

Incredible: Leo Messi scored identical free-kick at Villarreal in the warm up (video)

Leo Messi’s incredible free-kick record

Even by Leo Messi’s standards, the last week has been something quite incredible.

On Thursday evening, Leo Messi scored a free-kick against Athletic Bilbao.

On Sunday evening, Leo Messi bagged another free-kick to secure a point at Villarreal, in what had been a hugely frustrating match for Barcelona.

On Wednesday evening, Leo Messi guided Barcelona past Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey with another free-kick.

Three games. Three free-kicks.

Messi practiced in the warm up at Villarreal

A fascinating video has appeared from before the Villarreal game, which finished 1-1 and saw Gerard Pique rather angry.

Messi levelled things up in the final few seconds of the game with a picture perfect free-kick.

Incredibly, this was the first free-kick ever conceded by Yellow Submarine goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo.

Perhaps he should have simply watched the warm-up?

Although even then Asenjo probably wouldn’t have saved it!

A simply remarkable statistic! #Messi #Ronaldo #wow
