Watch: Rafinha scores left-footed wonder goal in Barcelona rout

Football News

Barcelona are absolutely running riot this afternoon in La Liga.

Four days on from spanking Celtic 7-0 at the Camp Nou, the Catalan giants are currently 5-0 up on the road against Leganes. 

And, although Lionel Messi (twice), Luis Suarez and Neymar are all on the scoresheet it is their teammate Rafinha who has produced the goal of the game so far. Scroll down to see the Brazilian's long-range screamer...

While the opening four goals were all slotted home inside Leganes' penalty area after neat team play from Barcelona, Rafinha's strike was a moment of individual brilliance.

Wonder goal

The 23-year-old picked up the ball wide on the left inside Leganes' half. From there he cut inside onto his weaker left foot and unleashed a truly unstoppable shot high into the top corner.

As you might expect, it left those watching on stunned...

In contrast to the tap ins for Messi, Suarez and Neymar earlier in the game - and Messi's well-converted penalty - there is no doubt that Rafinha's effort is the goal of what has been another impressive day for Luis Enrique's side.

It is never easy stealing the thunder of 'MSN' but their Brazilian teammate might have done just that this afternoon.
