Barcelona goal highlights: Messi is getting ridiculous with his free kick magic

Lionel Messi is making a habit of scoring from free kicks. Last week (Jan. 5), he did it against Athletic Bilbao. Over the weekend (Jan. 8), he did it at Villarreal. And on Wednesday, he did it again in a win over Athletic Bilbao.

Messi found the net for the third consecutive game on Wednesday, grabbing a big free kick goal late against in the second leg of Barcelona's Copa del Rey round of 16 clash. The goal gave Barca a 3-1 lead in the match and 4-3 on aggregate. The team would not look back after that goal. Check out this piece of majestic skill.

The kiss off the post. What a strike. Did you see Gerard Pique? The Barca defender bends over, and the ball goes right over him and in.
