Lionel MessiLionel Messi - Lionel Messi scored another goal with a free kick against Villarreal. The goal made the Barcelona star worthy of the status of a European free kick king in the past decade. Messi again showed off the accuracy of his left foot in the match against Villarreal. Messi's goal helped Barcelona to finish the game and still got the point, after the match ended with a score of 4-4.

 Quoted from Opta, Messi's goal against Villarreal was his second free kick that turned in a goal in the last four days, third in the last three matches, and sixth for this season. The record of six goals from Messi's free kick this season put him in the first player to score six free-kick goals or more in one season, after no player was able to do that since 2006/2007.
