Video: Lionel Messi doubles down to score from tight angle against Getafe


‘If you don’t succeed at first, try again’ was the motto Messi followed as he needed to double down on his efforts after the first attempt at goal, a sublime first touch volley, struck the far post.

Quite luckily for the Barca star, the rebound landed back on his feet, albeit at a very tight angle. Messi then showed his magic as he went on to score Barcelona’s third goal against Getafe.

It was his second goal of the night after converting a delicious through ball from Sergio Busquets to make it 1-0 in the 8th minute.

Despite what the scoreline suggests, Barcelona were sluggish for many parts of the game but it was a vintage performance from La Pulga nonetheless as he scored two goals and provided an assist during the 5-2 win at Camp Nou.
