OMG! What a Goal: Lionel Messi scores 73rd goal, leads Barcelona to Copa del Rey title over Athletic Bilbao [Video Highlights]

Lionel Messi scored his 73rd goal of the season in Pep Guardiola’s final match with Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao.

Messi had 50 goals in league and 23 outside of league play.
