Leo Messi celebrates his golazo v Deportivo with a family dinner [Instagram]

Saturday was a mixed day for Leo Messi.

The 28-year-old Argentine brought the Nou Camp off their chairs when he curled home a majestic first half free-kick to fire Barca ahead against Deportivo La Coruna.

Sadly for Leo, his goal didn’t secure the three points however.

The win seemed a forgone conclusion when Ivan Rakitic doubled Barca’s lead with a ripper in the second half, but Depor rallied with a late comeback.

Depor halved the deficit in the 77th minute through Lucas Perez, while Alejandro Bergantinos scored a shock 86th minute leveller.

Barca now pack their bags ahead of their trip to Japan to compete in the Fifa Club World Cup.

After the Depor game, and before jetting off to Asia, Leo Messi went out for a family dinner.

Leo was joined by his parents Jorge and Celia, plus his brothers Matias and Rodrigo and two of his nephews.

Messi’s wife Antonella Roccuzzo and his kids Thiago and Mateo missed the occasion.
