Lionel Messi scores sensational free-kick for Barcelona v Las Palmas

We’ve only just entered March but the bookmakers expect Lionel Messi to secure a record-breaking sixth Ballon d’Or award at the end of the year.

The Barcelona maestro has been in breathtaking form all season and will be desperate to end the 2017-18 campaign on a high with both club and country.

With the 2018 World Cup finals on the horizon, this has the potential to be the most defining year of Messi’s career.

Argentina, however, are not expected to win the World Cup this summer. They only just scraped through qualification and are heavily reliant on Messi.

It’s often said that Diego Maradona won the 1986 World Cup single-handedly, but Messi’s achievement would be even more impressive if he drags this current Argentina side to glory in Russia this summer.

You certainly wouldn’t put it past him. The guy is an absolute wizard.


Messi just scored one of his best free-kicks

And he proved his genius again this evening by scoring a magnificent free-kick against Las Palmas.

From the edge of the box, the 30-year-old dispatched a perfect free-kick into the top corner of the net.

Messi now has more free-kick goals than anyone this season

Messi has now scored more free-kicks this season than any other player in Europe’s top leagues.

Neymar and Nabil Fekir have both netted three this term but Messi, who surely has to be regarded as one of the best free-kick takers ever, now has four to his name.
