Lionel Messi, Barcelona captain, on Sunday evening scored a goal in his side’s 2-0 victory over Girona in the La Liga encounter.

Goals from Nelson Semedo and Lionel Messi gave Ernesto Valverde’s men all three points against the hosts at the Montilivia Stadium.

The victory over Girona means Barcelona are now five points clear again at the top of La Liga table.
