WATCH: Theo Hernandez Bends In Outrageous Free-Kick Against Barcelona

While Neymar may have just fired Barcelona back into the lead in tonight's Copa Del Rey final against Alaves, it would be remiss of me to not draw all of your attentions to Theo Hernandez's free-kick that briefly drew Babazorros level.

When Lionel Messi gave Barca the lead in Luis Enrique's final game in charge as Blaugrana manager, tonight, you could be forgiven for switching off under the assumption that the remainder of the final would be yet another cakewalk for Messi and co against lesser opposition.

However, when Alaves were awarded a free-kick four minutes after the Carlton Banks sized Argentinean opened the scoring, Theo decided to rip up the script for the evening, if only for a matter of minutes.

Between the left-back's free-kick sailing in and this article being written, Neymar and Paco Alcacer have resumed normal service and fired Barca into a 3-1 lead heading into half-time.

The goal will have been even sweeter for Hernandez given the fact he is joining Real Madrid, this summer.

We're not sure whether Cristiano Ronaldo will be budging from free-kick duty any time soon, however.
