The home side have created the better goal scoring chances in the early stages with Sergino Dest testing Huesca keeper Alvaro Fernandez.
However, with all the attacking traffic heading in one direction in this one, Messi created some space for himself on the edge of the box and fired home off the bar.
A MAGICAL finish from Lionel Messi! 🙌
The strike bounces in off the underside of the bar for his 20th league goal of the season, and Barca have an early lead 🔥 pic.twitter.com/H0zyw4ZeAu
