Barcelona forward Lionel Messi scored a pair of beautiful free kick goals against Espanyol on Saturday.
The Argentine fooled goalkeeper Diego Lopez for the first time during the 17th minute, bending in a strike from outside the box to give Barcelona a 1–0 lead.
In the 65th minute, Messi curled in another free kick from beyond the box. The sublime effort gave Barcelona a 4–0 lead.
English soccer commentator Ray Hudson was in attendance and offered a worthy reaction to Messi's strike.
Messi increased his goal total to 11 through 13 La Liga matches played this season.
