Lionel Messi scores twice, a golazo, as Barcelona win Copa del Rey


Lionel Messi scored twice, one of which will go down in his never-ending list of incredible goals as Barcelona won the Copa del Rey.

It was 2-0 Barcelona when the Barcelona captain received the ball and went on to score one of the greatest goals in Copa del Rey final history. Messi would get the ball in his own half, play a one-two with Pedri, dribble forward, play another one two with Frenkie de Jong, give it back to de Jong, the Dutchman would hold up the ball and pass it back to Messi as he would skip pass a defender and pass the ball into the back of the net.

A truly incredible goal as words cannot do it any justice. However, Messi was not done just yet. He would score a second just minutes later. Jordi Alba would play a pass back to Messi who would score off the edge of the penalty area and make it 4-0 for Barcelona.

Messi has now scored 31 goals this season, the same amount of goals as he scored all of last season for Barcelona. This is also his seventh Copa del Rey final win.

Congratulations to Lionel Messi on winning the Copa del Rey!

  2. for fun
    best attacking line up for argentina

    montiel romero linsandro acuna or tagliafico
    baundia paredes locelso
    dimaria Messi lautaro

    best defensive lineup
    foyth romero senesi acuna
    depaul guido ocampos
    messi alario nico … forward line is always attacking

  3. What a thrilling last 15 minutes in the PSG vs St Etienne now. 5 goals including 2 in injury time. Di Maria is a deadly witch when it comes to crosses. His penalty corner at 93rd min hits the post & he finishes with a pin point cross in 95th minute for a still then static Icardi to show his poaching best for the winning header.
    If Scaloni can find a way to play Messi more central , Di Maria in this form as a sub in right wing is an awesome option for last part of match.

    • Di Maria is back to his best. Only if Argentine managers used him as right winger. Last one to did so was Sabella in KO stages and first few matches of Martino.

      If you want to prove Scaloni is a noob, remember this point.

  4. copa squad should be:
    14.r depaul/ buendia only depaul injured
    15.palacios/gomes/nico domingues/zaracho
    16.guido rodrigues gonzales
    one spot is missing it is either ocampos or joaquin correa due to 23 man list

  5. what is the possibility of messi winning ballon d’or if he win laliga & copa america? and what is possibility if he wins copa america only ?

    • Does it really matter at this point? He’s already ahead of CR in Balon collection.

      Bayern’s out from CL already with Lewa injured. Juve is like 12 points behind Inter, very small chance to even finish 2nd place, so CR would be without league, CL & copa Italia titles.

      Copa seems like a farfetch but I wouldnt write out our chance. I think maybe Mbappe will get a nod if he win CL.

  6. Best squad for Copa America 2021
    1 Emi Martimez
    2 Musso
    3 Mascherain
    4 C. Romero
    5 Otamendi
    6 Foyth
    7 Acuna
    8 Pezella
    9 Angilleri
    10 Sarvia/Montiel
    11 Lo celso
    12 Paredes
    13 De Paul
    14 Guido Rodriguez
    15 Erik Lamela
    16 Papu Gomez
    17 Messi
    18 Aguero
    19 Angel Di Maria
    20 Lautaro Martinez
    21 N. Gonzalez
    22 Joaquin Correa
    23 Alario/Dybla
    No need for Armani he is already 35 and not gonna get any better,Argentina already have better goalkeepers who are best in their league say it Emiliano,Musso,Masharain etc.
    Can not ignore Otamendi and Pezella they were part of the process and most experienced, C. Romero is the best Center Back available, Foyth is showing good signs in Villarreal and he is versatile he can play either as CB, RB and Defensive Midfielder, Angilleri looks a very balanced player good in both attack and defence.
    Angel Di Maria what a performance against the best team in Europe(Bayern Munich) even at the highest level surely deserves spot in the squad.
    Argentina needs creative players and hard workers in midfield so Lamela,Lo celso,Papu Gomez needed unlike direct passer like Palacios.
    Alario or Dybla one should be choosen both are not getting regular game time in their club so based on their performance in their club one should be selected or both selected when any other forward player gets injured.

  7. Messi is like Superman “If I wanted it, you would be dead already” If he wants and be in the mood he can do anything, Just need the other players to make the runs and play one touch passes with him, Amazing. its great to see him finally enjoying and smiling at Barca. I have a gut feeling he may stay in Barca(During the start of the season he looked like dejected). Whether its good or not, Its not good if he stays as per me, Barca cant win CL which is the epitome of Club football success. Anyway its good news for us that finally Messi is enjoying and back smiling again. Hope he lifts the trophy for the NT come July 10th.

    Saying that i hope the Conembol somehow go ahead with the Copa America. The Europeans are easily playing all the NT Matches the South Americans are wasting time by not playing enough NT matches, no wonder European teams are winning the WCs more. The more matches the NT plays the better for building team chemistry. Considering 90 percent of our players play in various clubs spread across Europe. Anyway hope for the best.

    Off the topic, Esteban Andrada and Franco Armani are both having a disastrous time in goal at River and at Boca. Both have faded away since the Covid restart. By whatever logic Emiliano should start now for us in the Copa. otherwise we wont win I guess, Both Armani and Andrada looks horrible in Ariel Games, They both cant grab the Ball. Where as Emiliano is playing and have become the Top 3 GK in a League where Ariel game is at its best.

    Only area where Scaloni is doing a blunder is the Goal Keeping spot. Rest all spots I would give him good marks. (Even though Cristian Romero should be in our Defense)

  8. It is always a great felling seeing Messi smiling. I really want Argentina to win this Copa America 2021 with good player selection in playing eleven,Argentina is number one contender for Copa America.

  9. Messi in 2021 …21 goal, 8 assist , 64 chance created , 56 key pass , 104 successful dribble & 12 MOTM ( AS PER FOTMOBPRO)…..winning la liga & copa will be great year for him…..

  10. We ALL share and have the SAME feeling…….seeing Messi happy makes all of us just that.
    I have fantasized about ARGENTINA winning the WC and Copa America so many times, its like what I would do or how I would feel……..that EXACT same feeling that I got after ARG beat the DUTCH in 2014……ONE step away from making that dream a reality except making that final step TRUE.

  11. Heinze with 6 argentines in Atlanta: Rocco Rios, Alan Franco, Franco Ibarra, Santiago Sosa, Marcelino Moreno, Barco and Lisandro Lopez, at least 4 of them will be undisputed starters.
