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.

Not bad for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner who recently finished fifth in voting for the award earlier this week.
