Barcelona beat Atletico Madrid 2-1 on Saturday, but they trailed early in the second half until Neymar hit this absurd free kick into the top corner of the goal. Fernando Torres scored in the 51st minute to make it 1-0 and then four minutes later Neymar drew Barcelona even. He could not have hit it better and the 'keeper was falling all over himself just to make an effort at stopping it.

Messi then gave Barca a 2-1 lead when he and Luis Suarez hooked up for a nice little run, prompting Ray Hudson to say of the magisterial one: "He's the one that makes Atletico's defense look like a set of kites in a hurricane."
