Lionel Messi’s last-minute winner vs arch rivals Real Madrid at the Bernabeu was his 500th for the Catalans. On this memorable occasion, we look back at his 5 ever goals for Barcelona.
5) Free Kick vs Atletico Madrid
In a league match at the Vincent Calderon between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid with the score tied in the 80th minute, the game was tense and close. Barcelona had received a free kick on the edge of the box. While that seems a great opportunity to score, it was a tight angle and opposite to what Messi’s left foot would prefer. People expected either Messi or Xavi to cross the ball into the box. But Messi surprised everyone by catching Thibaut Courtois out of his line and putting the ball in the back of the net.
