Lionel Messi, back from injury, wasted no time finding the back of the net for Barcelona.

After subbing in in the second half, Messi showed no lingering trouble from the groin injury that had kept him sidelined for much of this season’s earlygoing, making an incisive run and receiving a pretty assist from Neymar for a chip shot goal.

Barcelona took a 4–0 lead in the 57th minute. Watch below.

All in all, it took him three minutes and a handful of touches to get the job done. Not bad.
