He marked his return from suspension with a goal in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday as Barcelona survived a scare against Rayo Vallecano. Messi tapped in Antoine Griezmann’s pass to equalise before sending Jordi Alba through with a wonderful pass, with Frenkie de Jong at the back post to tap in and seal a 2-1 victory.

Messi had sat out the previous two games suspended after being sent off in the defeat to Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup Final but on return looked refreshed and made the difference yet again for Barca.
