Lionel Messi's Incredible Highlights Vs Huesca Show He's On Another Level To His Barcelona Teammates

Lionel Messi's incredible performance during Barcelona 4-1 Huesca proves his footballing brain operates on a completely different level.

The Catalan giants ran out comfortable winners on Monday evening and it was all thanks to their captain.

Messi scored twice and made another on the same day he equalled Xavi's record 757 appearances for the club.

His first goal was a trademark solo effort which saw the Argentine maestro take just three touches before rifling home.

Antoine Griezmann's rocket doubled the home side's lead before Messi turned provider for Oscar Mingueza to grab a third.

Messi capped off the scoring in the 90th minute as Barcelona move up to second in the table.

It means he has now scored 21 goals and provided seven assists in just 23 domestic starts this season.

"We had a good first half and we kept up the intensity in the second. We finally got a goal from a corner. People work hard on set pieces. A great goal for Oscar."
