Messi the set-piece king as Barcelona again rely on Argentine star’s magic to see off Celta


Yet another hat-trick from the 32-year-old sent Ernesto Valverde’s side back to the top of La Liga as the forward displayed his dead-ball prowess

The football world collectively hopes it will be a long time before Lionel Messi’s genius starts to fade and the Barcelona star is proving week after week that he will not go gentle into that good night.

The 32-year-old scored a hat-trick of set-piece goals in Barcelona’s 4-1 win over Celta Vigo on Saturday in La Liga, an art he has steadily perfected.

When the No.10 can no longer charge at defences and poses fewer problems for opponents with his speed and agility, he will still possess these weapons.
