Lionel MESSI scored an under the wall free kick goal in FC Barcelona’s 3-0 win against Alaves.
Another start to a La Liga campaign and another Lionel MESSI goal or in this case two. The winner of the European Golden Shoe for the last two seasons scored twice to get off the mark this season.
Barcelona were awarded a free kick and the club captain stepped up and hit the ball under the Alaves wall and went in to make it 1-0 for last season’s La Liga winners. Brazilian COUTINHO added a second before MESSI himself made it 3-0 to seal the win.
The free kick goal was Barcelona’s 6000th La Liga goal. On February 1, 2009, MESSI scored Barcelona’s 5000th goal in La Liga.
