Lionel Messi added yet another amazing goal to his impressive and expanding resume, giving Barcelona a 1-0 lead against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday in the Copa del Rey at Camp Nou. The dribbling strike came in the 20th minute against a stunned defense.
Running up the right sideline, Messi weaved his way past a total of four Athletic Bilbao players, then delivered a sharp left-footed shot inside the box that went near post on Iago Herrerín. It was another vintage goal from the creative Argentine.
Luis Enrique's squad is looking to make quick work of Athletic Bilbao as they aim to make history by completing the famed treble. The Catalans have already won the league title, and are heavily favored in the Copa del Rey. On June 6, they face Juventus for the Champions League title.
