Insane New Angle Of Lionel Messi’s Copa Del Rey Final Goal Shows How Amazing It Is

A unique angle of Lionel Messi's incredible goal as Barcelona beat Athletic Bilbao to win the Copa del Rey shows how special it is.

Barcelona were 2-0 up against Athletic on Saturday when Messi and his teammates combined for a dazzling, free-flowing move that simply tore their opponents apart.

This view from behind the Athletic goals shows the seamless movement and passing at its best, as Barca take the ball from inside their own half to the back of the net via Messi's left boot. Absolute perfection.

Messi starts and ends the move, picking up the ball in his own half, avoiding a tackle and laying it off to Sergino Dest. The full-back plays it back to Messi who's off and running.

A pair of one-twos with Frenkie de Jong follow as Messi barely has to break his stride, before finding himself one-on-one with the defender in the box. Once he is wrong-footed by some Messi magic, the finish is simple.

It's liquid football - and this camera angle shows all of the moving parts working together in perfect harmony.

Barcelona ended up winning the match 4-0 to lift the trophy. Antoine Griezmann broke the deadlock on the hour, De Jong quickly added a second before Messi's sublime goal made it 3-0.

Barca's No 10 finished the scoring and naturally every one of his teammates wanted a picture of themselves and Messi with the Copa del Rey trophy post-match.

The victory meant the first silverware of Ronald Koeman's time in charge and - while most would argue that Barcelona are not the jaw-dropping, all-conquering force they were under Pep Guardiola or later Luis Enrique - they can still score crowd-pleasing goals like no other side.
