Lionel Messi wonder goal sets up Barcelona Copa del Rey triumph

CNN  — 

A wonder goal from Lionel Messi set Barcelona on its way to the second leg of the treble by lifting the Copa del Rey Saturday with a 3-1 victory against Athletic Bilbao.

Even by his incredible standards, this was something special as the Argentine maestro picked up the ball wide on the right and left defender after defender flat footed before scoring with a low shot.

It was his 57th goal in all competitions this season and had football commentators the world over struggling to find the superlatives to describe it.
