Here are the best pictures from FC Barcelona's 3-1 win over Girona in a friendly match on Wednesday, in which Lionel Messi scored an incredible goal with his weaker foot and picked a pass that left many stunned.

The Catalan giants put in yet another promising performance under new boss Ronald Koeman, but what might have been most exciting to supporters was Messi's display.

The 33-year-old, starting more centrally than many are used to, played a blind pass in the build-up to a brilliantly worked team goal that was finished off by Philippe Coutinho, before the Argentine got on the scoresheet himself with his weaker foot from outside the box.

It was a vintage display from the six-time Ballon d'Or winner, who was closer to leaving Barcelona than ever before just a few weeks ago after he requested to leave the club.
