#2 Scoring Free-Kicks In 3 Consecutive Matches

Barcelona v Valencia - La Liga
The Argentine is a real threat from set-pieces

Lionel Messi is brilliant in so many areas. His goals, free-kicks, assists, penalties, passes, dribbles, mazy runs, etc are all simply fantastic. The 5-time Ballon d'Or winner has been really incredible this term, particularly at set pieces.

Messi shocked the football world recently, after he scored 3 amazing free-kicks in 3 consecutive matches, becoming the first and only player to achieve that feat in Europe this season.

He scored th first in Barcelona's 6-1 humiliation of Girona at the Camp Nou. The second came in against Las Palmas as the Catalans earned an important point in a 1-1 draw.

His third consecutive free-kick goal came up against Atletico Madrid at Camp Nou, where he earned Barcelona an important victory by beating Jan Oblak with a brilliant strike.
