Messi gives set-piece masterclass as Barca outclass Celta

10 Novembre, 2019, 13:35 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Barca thrashed Celta Vigo 4-1 at the Nou Camp with a stunning hat-trick from Messi following a miserable week that began with a 3-1 loss to Levante, followed up with a goalless draw against Slavia Prague.

Barcelona's talisman gave the ball away in midfield and conceded a foul on the edge of his own box as he tried to win it back.

It was the first hat-trick of set-pieces in La Liga since... a certain Lionel Messi scored one in 2012 against Espanyol.

"Free kicks are something he has mastered down to an art".

Moments later Messi struck again, stepping up after Frenkie de Jong was fouled and sending a carbon copy of his first-half free-kick looping beyond the diving Blanco to complete his hat-trick.

Messi has now taken his tally to eight goals and four assists in seven league games for the Catalan giants this season.

This was the third time he has scored two free kicks in a single game, having done so against Sevilla in 2015 in the European Super Cup, and against Espanyol in La Liga a year ago.

Griezmann trudged off as Valverde sent Luis Suarez on for the last 17 minutes but it was fellow substitute Busquets who stole a slice of Messi's glory when he collected a poor defensive header and drilled a low shot into the net to make sure of the victory five minutes from time.

When teams concede free kicks on the edge of their own box they feel nearly as unsafe as penalties with Messi standing over them.

Valverde said: "It's impossible not to depend on Messi".

The Spanish manager added that his team's poor week motivated them to improve amid a tight title race that sees the Blaugrana top the league on goal difference.
