Lionel Messi scored two sublime free-kicks for Barcelona at the Nou Camp on Saturday night.
The Argentine magician curled home in superb style from 25 yards out against Celta Vigo in first-half injury time.
And he followed it up with an exquisite dink over the wall from slightly closer range early in the second half.

Messi is one of the best free-kick takers in history and made his shot on Saturday night look just as effortless as ever.
His first free-kick went up and over the wall, and curled away from helpless Celta Vigo goalkeeper Ruben Blanco into the top corner.
It restored Barcelona's lead in first half injury-time of the La Liga clash.
Messi had earlier given Barcelona the lead from the penalty spot before Lucas Olaza's equaliser for the visitors.
What a hattrick. Wow :fire:
MESSI IS THE GOAT :goat:#BarçaCelta

And he completed his hat-trick with his second brilliant free-kick early in the second half, floating it up and over the wall and leaving Blanco with no chance again.
Sergio Busquets added a late fourth as Barcelona went back top of La Liga ahead of Real Madrid on goal difference.
Earlier in the day Real Madrid cruised past Eibar with a dominant 4-0 victory.
Karim Benzema scored twice while Sergio Ramos and Federico Valverde were also on the score sheet.
